Wave Broadband, a West Coast provider of fiber data and voice services, says it has upgraded its fiber backbone to support multiple 100G circuits. Wave's fiber backbone will link the San Francisco Bay area to its three local on-net data centers. According to Wave, companies in need of data center connectivity and hosting services now have a local carrier option via Wave's data centers in Mountain View, Santa Clara, and San Francisco as a result of the infrastructure updates. All three data centers support the surrounding Bay Area, Wave says.
"We are continuously upgrading our infrastructure to meet the colocation needs of companies handling large data volumes, for cloud computing applications, and more," said Derrick Hofmann, Wave's vice president of data center services. "At our core, we are all about connecting local infrastructure to the cloud and broader internet with low latency, high quality, and cost-effective service. That's why we're happy to serve Mountain View/Palo Alto businesses with custom capacity in their own backyard."
Wave is a cable and broadband services provider that serves 673,000 homes and more than 1,800 commercial clients in Washington, Oregon, and California. The company has significantly expanded its fiber footprint in the past few years, and says it plans to continue assisting companies needing alleviation from the colocation marketplace crowding of Silicon Valley (see "Wave funds fiber network expansion").
"Wave is one of the few data center operators that can accommodate an immediate requirement in a market with single-digit vacancy," said Raul Saavedra, Jones Lang LaSalle's executive vice president. "The data center operations are well connected, located in close proximity to a major highway, and have the ability to house ancillary needs such as office space."
