US Signal nears completion of upgrade to its Indianapolis North Data Center

June 20, 2024
The service provider’s new location is the second-largest US Signal data center in the Indianapolis market.

US Signal is close to wrapping up the upgrade to its recently acquired Indianapolis North Data Center in Indianapolis. 

The new data center, 6325 Morenci Trail, marks US Signal’s third data center in Indiana. Etzel Engineer and Build has been contracted to assist with its renovation and expansion, which is scheduled to open in August officially.

John White, US Signal's COO, said the company is "already seeing strong market demand and customers pre-buying space, which underscores the necessity and importance of this expansion.”

The Indianapolis North Data Center meets Uptime's Tier III standards, ensuring high availability and robust security measures, including storm and emergency response plans and multi-faceted recovery strategies. 

Aa a SSAE 18-audited, HIPAA-compliant, the PCI-certified facility can serve as a secondary disaster recovery site or an integral component of a hybrid IT strategy. All critical components boast redundancy, with efficient cooling solutions maintaining consistent temperature and humidity levels.

Upon completion of the upgrades, the 9,600-square-foot data center will feature various elements to serve its clients, including 300 available cabinets, 24/7 staffing and multi-level security, and 10-12 new employees to operate the center.

Another benefit for new and existing business customers is expanded fiber availability and expansion capabilities. US Signal constructed over 6 miles of new fiber construction, passing over 500 enterprise locations. It also has the potential for further expansion in Phase Three, including power and space for 600 cabinets.

In December, US Signal acquired its second data center in Indianapolis, one of the fastest-growing Midwest tech ecosystems.
