StackPath, a global CDN services and edge-computing platform provider co-founded by SoftLayer founder Lance Crosby, has selected CommScope to support its expansion of its cloud capacity across twelve global sites.
StackPath has selected CommScope’s Professional Services team to meet increased global demand from its cloud customer base.
CommScope’s Professional Services team will manage the upgrade of StackPath’s data centers. The upgrade includes the installation of new switches, power distribution units (PDUs) and network cabling.

The initial projects are scheduled for completion in Q4 2020, with further growth planned into 2021.
