Windstream Wholesale, a provider of advanced optical solutions, has begun the initial work on adding three fiber routes to its rapidly expanding transport network: 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.
The three new fiber routes are part of Windstream Wholesale’s ongoing effort to expand its fiber infrastructure and provide a rich set of high-bandwidth WAN benefits, including low-latency transport to major data and international hubs across the United States, including Miami, New York City, Dallas, Los Angeles, and San Jose.
On certain spans, the project will draw high-count fibers through existing conduits, while on others, new routes will be built. Diverse routing methods safeguard networks from failures while providing coast-to-coast transport and connection to thousands of Windstream-lit buildings throughout the United States.
International Telecoms Week (ITW) is Aug. 29-Sept. 1 at Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center National Harbor, Maryland, near Washington DC. Attendees wishing to meet with Windstream Wholesale at the event may drop by Annapolis Meeting Rooms 1 and 2.
“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, 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.”
