Windstream Wholesale Lights Direct Route From Los Angeles to Las Vegas


LITTLE ROCK, Ark – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Windstream Wholesale, a leading provider of fast and flexible optical solutions, today announced that it has established a direct route from Los Angeles to Las Vegas through its Intelligent Converged Optical Network (ICON) architecture.

This new route provides a more direct, lower-latency path for Asia PAC’s (APAC) subsea cables landing in Los Angeles to access the growing Las Vegas data center ecosystem. With this expansion, Windstream now has three routes connecting Los Angeles to data center facilities in the Las Vegas area, including Databank, Switch, Cyxtera and Flexential, among others.

“As more and more submarine cables land in Los Angeles, there is a tremendous need for a variety of low-latency connections to domestic data centers that Windstream Wholesale’s expanding network is designed to provide,” said Joe Scattareggia, executive vice president of Windstream Wholesale. “Windstream is APAC’s gateway to North America and our ICON network is designed to meet this growing demand.”

Windstream’s ICON architecture offers an open and disaggregated network infrastructure for wholesale and enterprise technology customers with the following functions:

  • Flexible design options, alien wave support, and multi-vendor interoperability;

  • More bandwidth, customer-oriented design options and multi-vendor interop support;

  • Layer-Zero-Analyzes and Layer-One-Analyzes, which enable the monitoring of the network condition via the Windstream Carrier Portal as a central network management tool; and

  • Faster delivery through SDN orchestration for both design-based and intent-based delivery of wave and Ethernet solutions.
