Windstream Wholesale, a provider of optical technology solutions, has announced that its Intelligent Converged Optical Network (ICON) will be connected to the AUBix colocation data center near Auburn University. The Auburn link is the newest addition to Windstream’s growing data center portfolio. It is expected to go live by the end of February.
Windstream Wholesale is currently taking orders for wave services, ethernet solutions, and dedicated Internet access at all speeds at the new AUBix site.
“We are excited to provide customers with diverse, high-speed connectivity to the AUBix data center,” said Joe Scattareggia, EVP at Windstream Wholesale. “This data center is perfectly positioned to meet the needs of hyperscale, government and research-oriented companies across the Southeast. We couldn’t be happier to add AUBix to our suite of top-flight data center partners.”
AUBix, situated in Auburn, Alabama, is a 40,000-square-foot multi-tenant, CMMC-compliant colocation data center. It links to Windstream’s Point-of-Presence in Atlanta, Georgia, at 55 Marietta.
Access to Public Cloud
“We are proud to partner with Windstream to bring high-speed internet service to communities in Alabama,” said Andrew Albrecht, co-founder and CEO of AUBix. “Their visionary approach to technology parity means businesses in the region have the ability to compete on a national and global scale, fueled by reliable, fiber-based service.”
Through carrier-neutral colocation services and strong technical experience, AUBix takes pleasure in offering secured and compliant infrastructure that supports emerging markets in surrounding regions. End-users can utilize AUBix to get access to public cloud computing resources, dense compute and storage infrastructure, and cached content.
Windstream’s Intelligent Converged Optical Network (ICON) is an open and disaggregated networking infrastructure. It would allow wholesale and enterprise technology customers to choose unique custom routes, maintain operational insights with Windstream’s Network Intelligence functions, and move their networks closer to the edge to better serve end-users.
