Windstream Wholesale to build three new transport routes
Windstream Wholesale has begun work to add fibre to three new routes on its growing transport network.
The new routes are New York City to Albany to Montreal; Jacksonville, Florida, to Savannah, Georgia, to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to Raleigh, North Carolina; and Tulsa to Muskogee, Oklahoma, to Little Rock, Arkansas.
“This is the first time in two years that ITW has been an in-person event, and we are excited to meet face to face with our customers, partners and peers,” said Joe Scattareggia (pictured), executive vice president of Windstream Wholesale.
“We are rapidly expanding our transport network to meet customer demand, and we look forward to discussing how we can provide diverse, high-capacity connections to more key markets than ever before.”
The three routes form part of Windstream Wholesale’s ongoing initiative to expand its fibre infrastructure and provide a rich set of high-bandwidth WAN advantages including low-latency transport to major data and international hubs across the US, including in Miami, New York City, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Jose.
The project will pull high-count fibres through existing conduits on some spans as well as construction of some new paths on other segments. Diverse routing options protect networks against outages, while delivering coast-to-coast transport, as well as connectivity to thousands of Windstream-lit buildings across the US.
In related news earlier this month Windstream Wholesale connected its Intelligent Converged Optical Network (ICON) to the Hillsboro, Oregon, cable landing station (CLS). The station counts more than 12 subsea cables terminating to the surrounding region.
Windstream Wholesale continues to use its ICON launched in July 2021, with efficiency, speed, and diversity in mind. ICON enables Windstream wholesale and enterprise customers to select custom routes, maintain operational insights using network intelligence functions, and place their networks closer to the edge to better serve end-users.
