EdgeConneX confirms the addition of Bandwidth Infrastructure Group (Bandwidth IG) to its Atlanta data centre campus, ATL01 and ATL02.

The addition of Bandwidth IG increases high capacity connectivity options for enterprises and service providers located at the Atlanta campus.

Bandwidth IG is a metro dark fibre network provider offering reliable network solutions to technology companies. The company recently deployed a metro dark fibre network in the Greater Atlanta region which consists of multiple rings with high-capacity fibre cables connecting the central business district to the developments on the western side of the metro area.

"With its low natural disaster risk and high fibre density, Atlanta is home to many Fortune 500 companies and is a critical market for EdgeConneX. We proudly support our clients' edge deployments with two data centres located near the downtown metro area,” said Aron Smith, vice president for interconnection product management at EdgeConneX.

“Location sensitivity is key when you are building the edge, and that is why we spurred a fundamental shift in bringing the data centre to the edge in markets such as Atlanta. We look forward to working with the Bandwidth IG team as they serve the dark fibre and connectivity requirements of key organisations in the region."

ATL01 and ATL02 offer over 120,000 sqft of data centre space with multiple data halls and with space for additional expansion.

In addition, ATL01 and ATL02 customers have access to EdgeOS, a data centre operating system with over one million monitored data points across 18 subsystems, providing real-time visibility, including ticketing and SLA management for all EdgeConneX data centres.

"Atlanta is fast becoming a crucial market for data-intensive businesses and the EdgeConneX campus is among the first sites we knew we had to include in our new network," said Jim Nolte, CEO of Bandwidth IG.

"The legacy fibre networks in Atlanta are all close to 20 years old and with many companies committing large-scale deployments here, we knew this market was in need of new, state-of-the-art infrastructure."
