Bluebird Plans Midwest Data Center Expansion

Bluebird Network, a Midwest telecommunications company, has announced a major expansion of its Bluebird Underground Data Center in Springfield, Missouri, the company said.

This expansion is to serve the rapidly growing enterprise and cloud service customer base.

Over 11,500 square feet of additional white space is being added, increasing the data center to over 29,000 square feet of white space. In addition, significant mechanical, electrical and generation capabilities are included, bringing the 85-ft-deep underground data center to full Tier 3 capabilities.

Since 1999, Bluebird Network, headquartered in Columbia, Missouri, has provided Internet and fiber transport services to Carriers and Enterprises in Missouri, Illinois, and the surrounding states. In 2014, an underground space was acquired, becoming Bluebird Underground and adding a data center facility to the Bluebird suite of services. The network now has over 9,300 fiber route miles of high-speed broadband and fiber-optic connections. The Bluebird fiber network has over 151 Points of Presence (POP) sites spanning the Midwest, including the major cities of Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield (MO and IL), Tulsa, Peoria, Rockford, Bloomington, Normal and the Quad Cities.
