Windstream Wholesale Brings Network Diversity to Hillsboro Ecosystem


Windstream Wholesale, a leading provider of advanced optical solutions, today announced that it has connected its Intelligent Converged Optical Network (ICON) to the Hillsboro, Oregon, cable landing station. With over a dozen subsea cables terminating to the surrounding region, Hillsboro is home to numerous thriving high-tech companies in what is known as the "Silicon Forest."

Windstream now provides diverse routes from both the Hillsboro and Portland markets to data centers across the country.

"We are excited to bring our award-winning services to the Hillsboro cable landing station," said Joe Scattareggia, executive vice president of Windstream Wholesale. "Now, for the first time, customers have access alternatives to diverse, high-capacity connectivity into the Hillsboro ecosystem, and they recognize the value that Windstream Wholesale offers. We have already sold fifty 100-gigabit wave connections to multiple customers, including a large hyper-scaler and an international cloud/content provider, and we're just getting started."

Windstream currently provides connectivity to data centers in Hillsboro operated by Digital Realty, Flexential, Stack, EdgeConneX and QTS.

"As Windstream continues to expand its reach to better serve its customers, we're excited to partner with them as they deploy with us in Hillsboro ? an important hub for connectivity and internet exchange linking the Pacific Northwest, Asia and beyond. This is the next step in our open interconnection roadmap to build the largest open fabric of fabrics in partnership with the industry," said Tony Bishop, senior vice president of Platform, Growth and Marketing at Digital Realty. "The new fiber route provides additional network diversity for enterprises and service providers in Hillsboro and complements our plan to implement a data-centric architecture that supports the performance needed for customers to overcome data gravity challenges and scale digital business at key centers of data exchange."

Windstream services include waves, dark fiber, Dedicated Internet Access, and managed spectrum. In addition, Windstream's entrance into the Hillsboro market creates additional diversity by eliminating the need to route traffic through the Pittock Block telecom hub in Portland.

The expansion into Hillsboro is part of Windstream Wholesale's ongoing initiative to provide a rich set of high-bandwidth WAN advantages including low-latency transport to major data and international hubs across the U.S., including in Miami, New York City, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Jose. Diverse routing options protect networks against outages, while delivering coast-to-coast transport, as well as connectivity to thousands of Windstream-lit buildings across the U.S.
