Digital Crossroad - Indiana

Comcast Business, a provider of Ethernet, Internet, Wi-Fi, Voice, TV and Managed Enterprise Solutions, has connected its high-speed Ethernet fiber network to Digital Crossroad. The recently commissioned 70,000 square feet data center colocation campus is located in the Indiana/Chicagoland market. Digital Crossroad’s high-capacity infrastructure is engineered to accommodate enterprise and hyperscale customers.

The Comcast Business fiber network provides businesses in the region the opportunity to co-locate their data in this 18MW data center and access “fast, high-bandwidth” connections to their most important assets. Comcast Business’ 100Gbps circuit capacity allows data sharing to bypass multiple stops and connect point-to-point with the Digital Crossroad colocation data center.
