By acquiring opticAccess, Integra will immediately enhance its Western fiber reach with a 3,500 route mile network, which reaches from Seattle to San Diego, with much of its metro fiber route miles being in California's Bay Area and Los Angeles metro areas.

"With our metro and long-haul network strategy, we have Electric Lightwave and Integra Business and we have been very successful in organic growth since we kicked that off," said Dan Stoll, president of Integra's Electric Lightwave division, in an interview with FierceTelecom. "We're able to serve those Tier 1 markets that are simply asset-rich and in that we can combine unique, diverse, low-latency solutions for those data-centric markets as well as how we can deliver Ethernet and provide other applications such as voice, security and firewall."

This acquisition is key for Integra on a number of levels.
