US Signal, a Midwest data center provider offering connectivity, cloud hosting, colocation, data protection, and disaster recovery services, is leveraging Connected2Fiber’s ‘The Connected World’ platform to strategically grow its 14,500+ mile network throughout the Midwest. As a cloud-based MSP that owns its network end-to-end, US Signal uses Connected2Fiber’s location engagement platform as the basis for new network builds and identification of new potential partnerships.
The Connected World platform will be leveraged to identify tenants along new network build paths for example, in order to justify the cost and increase the economic return of the new construction. When it may be advantageous to partner with another connectivity provider on a project, US Signal leverages Connected2Fiber to search for network providers that would be ideal partners to service its customers along certain routes, navigating “an increasingly complex” network environment to improve the client experience.
US Signal also participates in the wholesale ecosystem within The Connected World by automatically distributing their building lists to trusted partners using the platform. Speed in communicating updated serviceability to partners has increased significantly as a result – moving from a process that took weeks or months to one that’s now immediate.
“As a rapidly growing solutions provider with our own robust, secure fiber network at the core of our business, it was critically important for US Signal’s ongoing success to gain a centralized view of our total addressable market in order to become even more efficient in our go-to-market operations,” said Amanda Regnerus, Executive Vice President of Business Development at US Signal. “Partnering with Connected2Fiber has provided this and much more – transforming the way we plan for customer success while simultaneously helping us maximize our return on investment for each network build.”
Data Center Solutions and Connectivity
“As soon as we onboarded with Connected2Fiber, our speed to market, visibility and customer experience made significant strides,” said Chad Hohendorf, Vice President of Sales Operations at US Signal. “As we add new buildings and routes to our growing network footprint, the platform immediately updates the view internally and in our partners’ systems. This value is in addition to the icing on the cake: the connections we’ve made to new clients and partners through Connected2Fiber’s platform.”
Connected2Fiber is a cloud-based engagement platform for connectivity. The company’s ‘The Connected World’ platform details and displays deep, trusted location-based insight. It would empower users to leverage that insight to automate go-to-market processes around deal identification, account prioritization, and product pricing.
“We’re thrilled to be working with US Signal, an impressive provider with a dedication to customized solutions and industry-leading customer service,” said Steve Leavitt, Vice President of Sales at Connected2Fiber. “Through The Connected World platform, US Signal is taking that client support to the next level and planning economically sound, data-supported fiber builds – ultimately providing more connectivity and critical data center solutions to America’s Heartland.”
