Massive Connectivity

QLoop network is a massive a 40± mile hyperscale fiber ring connecting Quantum Loophole’s 2,100+ acre Quantum Frederick data center development in Maryland to Northern Virginia’s Data Center Alley. The network ring will allow carriers to place more than 200,000 strands of fiber, connecting to the Ashburn ecosystem in under one half millisecond Round Trip Time (RTT).

The QLoop fiber optic ring will make two crossings under the Potomac River. This work is underway.

When complete, QLoop will contain in excess of thirty, 2-inch HDPE conduits placed at a depth designed to exceed security standards. On the Quantum Frederick campus, Quantum Loophole will be constructing a network of conduits to connect Quantum Frederick’s two planned network centers on its Maryland data center campus to QLoop. These network centers will be designed to accommodate automatic, robotic cross connections powered by Telescent. When fully deployed, these Telescent-enabled network centers will be capable of processing millions of cross connects  from the QLoop to the on-campus conduits that deliver fiber to each data center site on the Quantum Frederick campus, thus expediting time-to-market for customers and creating a private metro system on the Quantum Frederick campus.

The systemwide bend radius has been designed to accommodate 6912 fiber, adding capacity to the platform will be both fast and efficient. 

Pre-orders for conduit, custom fiber deployments and access to QLoop are currently available.

Each property will have access to conduits and thousands of strands of fiber directly into the QLoop system to enable seamless, private and secure connectivity for all of our campus-wide customers.

Quantum Loophole employs a dig-once approach. By placing the conduits all at once, QLoop will be able to support future campus expansions and increase speed to market for customers without disturbing the land along the route each time.

Quantum Loophole reimagines the site selection process for hyperscale and mass-scale data center developments. Its first project, in Frederick County Maryland, provides the digital infrastructure industry a 10-20 year road map inclusive of land, power, water and fiber network infrastructure.
