Global supply chain woes have plagued the IT and telecom infrastructure sector for some time now, and solutions that help these mission-critical providers keep up their pace of innovation and service delivery are paramount. This is why Arelion (the newly rebranded Telia Carrier — the company known for offering the #1 ranked global internet backbone) has just launched expanded capabilities and upgraded capacity with 1623 Farnam, a regional leader in network-neutral edge interconnection and data center services. As a highly interconnected edge data center in Omaha, 1623 Farnam boosts Arelion’s ability to avert bottlenecks and deliver rapid deployments on its new 800G route.
Arelion’s presence within the 1623 Farnam carrier and cloud ecosystem was bolstered by its recently completed 800G fiber route, which offers readily available capacity options for organizations seeking on-demand, innovative technologies across 5G, IoT, AI, AR, cloud gaming, and more. This network expansion within the edge data center enables access to Arelion’s new multi-terabit, high-capacity optical fiber route, which provides bandwidth from Chicago to Denver through Infinera’s latest ICE6 800G coherent transponder technology. 1623 Farnam customers benefit from the presence of Arelion’s diverse open line system, which helps them deliver rapid deployments while providing an ideal foundation for meeting next-generation application and connectivity requirements with unmatched network performance.
Arelion’s strong network offering, when paired with 1623 Farnam’s robust connectivity ecosystem, strategic location, and trusted edge data center services, ensures tenants have necessary access to the latest technologies with competitive commercial costs and greater availability through multiple supplier options. This open line system and extensive ecosystem, in turn, help to avoid supply chain challenges.
“Customers that are looking to digitally transform need ample network capacity for their applications and systems to thrive — and it’s clear we have a tremendous amount of capacity in Omaha. At 1623 Farnam, we’re proud to offer access to Arelion’s leading global backbone. Many vendors are dealing with 25-30 week lead times, and people don’t have that kind of time anymore. We have the capacity available and ready to go. As an edge expert and a connectivity connoisseur, we’re glad that we can continue to improve our ecosystem with wonderful partners and tenants, creating a rising tide that lifts all boats.” – Todd Cushing, President, for 1623 Farnam
