STACK, a company delivering wholesale data center build-to suit, colocation, and powered shell solutions in eight U.S. markets today, has signed an agreement with Dallas-based metro dark fiber provider InnerCity FiberNet (ICFN). The dark fiber provider will bring their metro select dark fiber, Ethernet, wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM), and dedicated Internet, to clients in STACK’s two Dallas-Fort Worth data centers.
Dallas Fort-Worth is an international interconnection hub, a central marketplace connecting the south and central United States and Latin America. STACK’s two data centers, DFW01 and DFW02, total 32 MW and almost 400,000 square feet of space in Plano, with adjacent expansion capacity of another 50 MW on 16 acres of land.
Already served by 13 select carriers, these facilities will also now offer direct connection to ICFN’s extensive private fiber network with access to the Dallas infrastructure ecosystem.
“Connectivity is a critical offering for all of our clients, and we are proud to partner with industry leaders like ICFN to bring best-in-class options to the cloud providers and enterprises whom we serve both in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and nationwide,” said Donough Roche, Senior Vice President of Engineering for STACK. “ICFN has a long track record of success here, and we’re proud to bring their redundant fiber infrastructure into our facilities.”
