The cable operator works with the data center provider to provide direct onramps to major content providers.

Breezeline is giving broadband customers a way to get more enjoyment out of their streaming services by deploying advanced technology within its fiber-broadband infrastructure.

Working with CoreSite, a hybrid IT solutions provider, Breezeline recently deployed in the data center company’s Chicago campus.

The cable operator has been aggressively expanding its fiber broadband footprint and has existing deployments in CoreSite’s Miami, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. data center campuses. CoreSite’s colocation services offer a high-performance environment for Breezeline’s IT infrastructure and provide customers with the best online experience.

Breezeline leverages CoreSite’s peering services to connect with networks directly and exchange IP traffic. It also uses cloud and content onramps at CoreSite’s facility for direct connectivity to central cloud and content providers, including Amazon, Fastly, Microsoft and Google, streamlining data pathways and providing faster connectivity to content on popular sites like YouTube.

“Breezeline is committed to providing customers with a secure, reliable and superfast online experience,” said Aaron Brace, vice president of engineering for Breezeline. “Our partnership with CoreSite provides us with the interconnectivity and IT infrastructure that enhances connectivity for our residential and business customers across our entire footprint.”

Establishing a relationship with CoreSite to enhance its broadband customers’ streaming experience aligns with its streaming TV efforts. Earlier this month, Breezeline announced it was expanding its “Breezeline Stream TV” rollout across its markets.

The Delaware, Maryland and Virginia service areas are the latest to gain access to this platform. It was previously introduced in the company’s Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Florida, and Ohio service areas.
