Windstream Wholesale adds express route between Dallas and Atlanta
Overlay expands capacity, reduces congestion in dense-traffic corridors
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.,
“This route overlay is but one segment of a larger technology upgrade of strategic routes in the network,” said Joe Scattareggia, executive vice president of Windstream Wholesale. “By incorporating the FlexILS technology into our most popular and highest-demand routes, Windstream Wholesale is deploying our next generation core long-haul network to provide our customers with additional bandwidth while continuing to improve the current high-quality, low-latency services on this route.”
The overlay leverages Infinera’s cutting-edge DTN-X ICE4 generation of optics and FlexILS line system for greater reach, density, capacity and spectral flexibility. The new route will remain compatible with Windstream’s SDNow service offering, enabling touch-free provisioning and SDN orchestration to deliver services to customers when they want them. The Dallas-to-Atlanta overlay was completed during the third quarter of this year. Windstream is in the process of upgrading additional high demand routes with the latest Infinera technology.
