Stockholm, 26 April 2022 – Arelion announced today general availability of its latest US East-to-West coast network project. The addition of the new Southwest route provides long-haul connectivity at multi-terabit scale for Dallas and El Paso to the West coast through Phoenix, Arizona; San Diego, California; and Los Angeles, California. This expansion completes the high-capacity system across the United States connecting previously announced deployments eastward from Dallas, Texas, via Nashville, Tennessee to Ashburn, Virginia.
The latest expansion also provides new options to serve Mexico, tying together key growth markets across the southwest and providing more capacity to content, application and cloud providers in this region. The system serves customers at access points in El Paso and San Diego with new connectivity options, providing more capacity and diversity to support international development in Mexico.
The coast-to-coast route, based on an open photonic layer design, provides flexibility to select optical equipment for commercial and supply chain optimization and utilizes the latest generation of technology across the network. As a result, Arelion customers benefit from fast delivery with competitive commercial terms and capabilities.
“This deployment is an ongoing execution of Arelion’s initiative to address customer demand and connect tier one markets and growing edge markets across the country,” said Art Kazmierczak, Director of Business and Network Development at Arelion. “By building an open system we are committed to providing a network that is flexible, automated and scales efficiently. Our new routes add diversity in metro regions to connect cloud availability zones with direct access into hyperscale datacenter campuses in addition to legacy carrier interconnection points.”
