Windstream Wholesale Establishes Presence at Equinix NY Metro Data Center Campus Creative solution immediately boosts capacity for future tenant Seaborn Networks

Windstream Wholesale, a flexible provider of advanced network communications, continues to expand its services to high-demand data centers, by establishing a presence at the Equinix NY5 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center, the company said.

As a part of this expansion, Windstream Wholesale will offer fully diverse 10 and 100 Gig Waves to the ecosystem of companies operating within Equinix´s New York metro data center campus, which is located in Secaucus, N.J., and offers a highly scalable platform with more than 90 network service providers.

Windstream Wholesale expects to be built into the Equinix facility by July. However, urgent network capacity needs continue to grow, so, in the meantime, Windstream has provided a creative temporary solution for one of its established partners, Seaborn Networks, a developer-owner-operator of subsea fiber optic cable systems. Windstream delivered four 100-Gig waves from Ashburn, Va., to the international landing station in Wall Township, N.J., to meet Seaborn´s immediate expansion needs. When Windstream´s build is complete at the NY5 IBX, it will move two of those waves to Secaucus.
