Stream Data Centers Expands Houston Network With New Crown Castle Route

With the announcement of a sparkling new fiber route, Stream Data Centers’ Houston data center just got a big boost. Houston is a massive city in terms of area, population, and economy, but its outlying edge has arguably been underserved from a connectivity standpoint for quite some time. With yesterday’s announcement, the Houston fiber network has changed for the better.Stream data centers houston

The city’s enterprise organizations in industries like aerospace, medical, construction, and energy are continuing to move toward cloud workloads and edge computing. The Stream team believes it can capitalize on that increasing need for low latency and proximal data centers. As a result, it has worked hard to bring new Crown Castle Houston fiber along a completely diverse route into its Houston I data center in The Woodlands. This, Stream believes, is the ticket to provide businesses in the area with the rich, high-performance connectivity they need.

The Right Houston Fiber Route Dance Partner

Crown Castle is a 25-year old Fortune 500 company with over 80,000 route miles of fiber nationwide – and nearly 3,000 miles of fiber across Texas alone. Stream knows Crown Castle is a recognized name in crown castle fiberthe 5G community, and the partnership will add significantly to connectivity and performance for customers. The route built and maintained by Crown Castle is an all-new Houston fiber offering along a totally diverse route. This kind of redundant, high performance option is precisely what is required to support a gamut of new IoT, 5G, edge and other latency-sensitive applications that Stream expects to see popping up in Houston. “Innovation relies on new fiber”, explains Chad Rodriguez, Vice President, Network and Cloud at Stream, “Crown Castle hits the mark in support of new, data-intensive technologies. We are proud to partner with such a growth-minded market leader”.

Expanding Houston Fiber Connectivity from The Woodlands

The Woodlands is a master-planned office community and one of the only controlled-development business parks in the Houston area. The location was partly chosen because of its high security, with no proximity to industrial uses, rail lines or flight paths. Now with even more ample connectivity, Stream Data Centers is helping transform The Woodlands into a vibrant hub for innovation with ultra low latency connectivity to downtown Houston and beyond.
