Lumic is an FTTx pure dark-fibre connectivity solution that enables you to connect multiple customers in single or multi-tenant locations back to a corresponding DFA aggregation node. A Lumic service can terminate at a guardhouse, building basement, street cabinet, or manhole. You connect your own active network equipment to have full control over the aggregation and the services that you provide to your customer.

The newly optimized Lumic service enables you to use pure dark-fibre infrastructure for multiple end customers at a location such as a business park, shopping mall, or residential estate, to a corresponding DFA aggregation node.

  • End-to-end pure dark fibre between your aggregated last-mile traffic from a multi-tenant location and a corresponding DFA aggregation node.
  • Allows you to connect your own active network equipment for unlimited, uncapped throughput.



Lumic is a dark-fibre service that places no limits on aggregation or capacity, enabling you to offer your business customers the connectivity they need for critical business applications.
