Windstream Wholesale Enhances Network Connectivity with Two New Data Center Expansions

Windstream Wholesale (WW), a leading provider of fast and flexible advanced optical solutions, today announced its expansion to two prominent data centers, Ascent and Stack, located in Alpharetta, Ga. This significant integration stems from successful collaboration with a major global financial solutions provider.

By seamlessly integrating its operations into the Ascent data center located at 4905 North Point Parkway and the Stack Data center located at 3200 Webb Bridge Road, both in Alpharetta, Windstream Wholesale has effectively tailored its services to meet the requirements of this valued customer. This network expansion not only highlights Windstream Wholesale’s flexibility but also positions the company to offer diversity advantages to future customers in the thriving Atlanta market.

To secure the initial customer deal, Windstream Wholesale proposed innovative route designs tailored to the specific requirements of the data center locations. This proactive approach, combined with close customer collaboration, ensured the successful implementation of the customer’s connectivity solution.

“We invested the necessary time to work with the customer, actively listening to their needs and delivering the optimal routing solution,” said John Nishimoto, senior vice president of product, strategy and marketing at Windstream Wholesale. “Our initial deal facilitated the customer’s success and enabled us to bring these new data centers on-net. Leveraging different paths for the two routes enhances the value proposition and positions Windstream Wholesale as a one-stop-shop for diverse multi-vendor route solutions.”

Joe Scattareggia, Windstream Wholesale president, said, “Given the typical involvement of multiple vendors and the importance of diversity, our routing solution stands out as paramount. This enables us to efficiently meet the needs of customers in the Atlanta market and accelerate service turn-up for larger customers, utilizing what we call the ‘fast and flexible’ approach.”

Ascent specializes in providing custom-built end-to-end solutions for data-intensive organizations, prioritizing safety, availability, and continuous innovation. Similarly, Stack focuses on meeting hyperscale demand, with data centers for efficiency, flexibility, and sustainability.

Windstream Wholesale strategically selected Ascent and Stack data centers to support its growing network footprint and cater to the demands of its Global Accounts customer vertical, particularly within the financial sector. This strategic expansion is one of many tactical achievements in Windstream Wholesale’s commitment to meeting customer demand and offering enhanced diversity options.
