Silicon Valley in Northern California is home to more than 2,000 tech companies. The innovation and development taking place at companies headquartered throughout the area requires data to be transmitted quickly. A new agreement between Bandwidth IG, a metro dark fiber network provider in Northern California and Greater Atlanta, and QTS Realty Trust (NYSE: QTS) is making the quick transmission of data easier.
Connecting through QTS’ Santa Clara Data Center
Bandwidth IG worked with QTS to create a custom solution for its Santa Clara data center. Bandwidth IG constructed a new completely diverse entrance to the QTS campus. The unique network design provides shorter paths between locations, giving customers unprecedented diversity and low latency in one of the top data center markets in the US.
With the high volume of tech companies in the area that rely on data centers to quickly share information, the ability to access diverse fiber routes with shorter paths is important because it lends to more reliable and faster transmission.
“We understand that today’s data center customers require a resilient, robust, secure and diverse network, and our newly built dark fiber infrastructure across Northern California enables data center operators to create that environment. Our continued investment in the Bay Area gives QTS the only new fiber infrastructure in Silicon Valley, allowing end users to solve their connectivity needs today and well into the future.” – Jim Nolte, CEO for Bandwidth IG.
Highest Quality Fiber Now Available for QTS’ Santa Clara & Atlanta Customers
Bandwidth IG is now providing the QTS Santa Clara facility with the newest, highest quality dark fiber network in Santa Clara. They also have the ability to provide bulk dark fiber to QTS customers.
Last year, Bandwidth IG deployed dark fiber to QTS’ Atlanta Metro Mega Data Center campus. After experiencing success there, QTS turned to Bandwidth IG to increase bandwidth at its Santa Clara location.
Bandwidth IG’s Northern California dark fiber network spans more than 160 route miles and 289,000 fiber miles. To learn read the full announcement, click here.
