An agreement between Bandwidth Infrastructure Group (Bandwidth IG) and Flexential will deliver more access to in-demand dark fiber routes in the emerging data center hub of Hillsboro, Oregon. Bandwidth IG
is expanding its Hillsboro area dark fiber network to include Flexential’s Portland – Hillsboro 2 data center by adding two new entrances to the facility.
The Hillsboro 2 data center has become one of the most sought-after data centers for enterprises and carriers in the Pacific Northwest. The entrances will be completed this spring and will allow Flexential to meet customers’ growing demands for connectivity. In addition to extra fiber connectivity, the project will ensure that enterprises have access to a diverse, redundant dark fiber network needed to empower modern business applications.
“Hillsboro is a rapidly expanding part of our network because of its position as a global hub for connectivity and computing. Working with Flexential is a crucial part of delivering much-needed dark fiber services to hyperscalers and enterprises, as well as other data centers in the region. We look forward to growing our relationship by delivering more diverse routes to additional Flexential data centers in Hillsboro.” — Bruce Garrison, CEO of Bandwidth IG
The addition of Bandwidth IG’s dark fiber network to the Hillsboro 2 data center also:
- Supports broader connectivity to Flexential’s three other data centers in Hillsboro
- Fosters additional connectivity to other data centers in the region
- Will offer over 100MW of actively deployed capacity at Flexential facilities in the region at full build-out.
