Earthlink Network Expands

November 15, 2012


To meet customers' growing demand for highly secure Cloud Hosting and IT services, EarthLink plans to extend its core fiber IT network and expand its IT Solutions footprint with data centers in San Jose, Chicago, Dallas and South Florida to create and end-to-end Cloud fabric.

Additional centers will add optical transport capabilities, increase capacity in key markets-including Ashburn, Atlanta, Charlotte and Orlando-and build EarthLink's fiber network into Texas. When complete at the end of 2013, EarthLink will have a total of eight data centers linked to its nationwide IP network. 

"The IT needs of companies are growing and evolving as they look for ways to virtualize their businesses and strategically maintain, if not decrease, their cost structures," said EarthLink Executive Vice President of Products and Marketing Michael Toplisek. "As a result, we continue to evolve our IT solutions architecture, infrastructure and services. By providing regional data center diversity, combined with our expanded national IP network footprint, we can deliver the performance customers need and give them peace of mind that their data is secure in our Cloud."

On Friday, October 12, 2012, EarthLink announced the expansion of its fiber network, increasing capacity and improving redundancy to meet customer demand for higher bandwidth and premium services.

A new Memphis-to-Chicago long-haul fiber route-scheduled to complete by the end of the year-extends network reach with up to 10 Gigabit service and provides additional diversity and redundancy. 

The new Memphis metro fiber ring is a Wave/SONET-enabled OC-192 ring on the 10 Gigabit backbone, designed to provide greater reach in the market, and access to metro and cellular carriers in the city. The route is scheduled to complete early 2013. 

"EarthLink is very excited about the increased options, speed and reliability these network expansions will mean for our customers, said Jim O'Brien, executive vice president of infrastructure engineering and operations. "This long-haul route encompasses major wireless centers and importantly, provides a redundant connection between our Northeast and Southeast fiber networks."
