SEPTEMBER 5, 2007 — WV Fiber LLC (Nashville, TN) completed major network-infrastructure upgrades, leveraging an existing relationship with carrier-neutral provider telx to extend offerings. WV added more than 500 customers in telx facilities across the U.S., and updated its network topology to comprise three 10-G rings.
Upgrades occurred over an approximately 12-month period. WV redesigned and implemented new line capacity and hardware, using Cisco 6500- and Cisco 7606-series routers. The three rings each offers two diverse paths. The eastern ring connects London, New York, Chicago, Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Ashburn; the western ring hits Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and San Jose. A third ring tracks the U.S. circumference.
WV will co-locate with telx, its core interconnection and co-location provider, as often as possible, says Peter Marcum, CEO, WV. telx operates 13 "Meet Me Room" and core interconnection facilities across the U.S. WV Fiber has POPs in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and San Jose — allowing customers requiring access to WV Fiber's network multiple options for diverse access. IP transit customers can leverage WV Fiber's peering network, comprising more than 450 direct peers.
