This service provider said this latest integration will accelerate service turn-up for larger customers.

Windstream Wholesale (WW) has expanded its network to two prominent data centers, Ascent and Stack, located in Alpharetta, Ga., reflecting a collaboration with a significant financial solutions provider. 

By 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 customer.

The service provider said this network expansion highlights Windstream Wholesale’s flexibility and positions the company to offer diversity advantages to future customers in the thriving Atlanta market.

Windstream Wholesale secured the initial customer deal because the provider proposed route designs tailored to the specific requirements of the data center locations. This proactive approach and close customer collaboration ensured the successful implementation of the customer's connectivity solution.

John Nishimoto, senior vice president of product, strategy, and marketing at Windstream Wholesale, said the company emphasized how it could provide network diversity that met customers' unique needs.

“Our initial deal facilitated the customer’s success and enabled us to bring these new data centers on-net,” he said. “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.”

Ascent provides custom-built end-to-end solutions for data-intensive organizations, while Stack focuses on meeting hyperscale demand. Windstream Wholesale said it 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.
