Bandwidth IG Supplies Stronger Connectivity to QTS

Bandwidth IG Creates Custom Connectivity Solution for QTS Realty Trust

Bandwidth IG’s new dark fiber network gives customers at QTS’ Santa Clara data center unprecedented network diversity

Responding to increasing enterprise demand for diverse connectivity, Bandwidth Infrastructure Group (Bandwidth IG) and QTS Realty announced an agreement to create stronger connectivity options for enterprises connecting through QTS’ Santa Clara data center. Bandwidth IG, a metro dark fiber network provider in Northern California and Greater Atlanta serving mission critical data centers, hyperscalers and enterprises with new, high capacity dark fiber, is now providing the QTS Santa Clara facility with dark fiber connectivity.

The QTS multi-building data center is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, one of the top data center markets in the U.S. Reliable, low latency connectivity is critical to the success of enterprises and a growing number of technology companies located in the area. Bandwidth IG offers the newest, highest quality dark fiber network in Santa Clara and has the ability to provide bulk dark fiber to QTS customers.

As part of the project, Bandwidth IG recently constructed a new completely diverse entrance to the QTS campus. Bandwidth IG’s network design provides shorter paths between locations, giving customers unprecedented diversity and low latency.

“We understand that today’s data center customers require a resilient, robust, secure and diverse network, and our newly built dark fiber infrastructure across Northern California enables data center operators to create that environment,” said Jim Nolte, CEO for Bandwidth IG. “Our continued investment in the Bay Area gives QTS the only new fiber infrastructure in Silicon Valley, allowing end users to solve their connectivity needs today and well into the future.”

QTS data centers feature diverse connectivity for cloud and hybrid colocation including carrier-neutral cloud interconnection, multiple fiber routes and IP providers. Last year, Bandwidth IG deployed dark fiber to QTS’ Atlanta Metro Mega Data Center campus. After experiencing success there, QTS turned to Bandwidth IG to increase bandwidth at its Santa Clara location.

“Silicon Valley is one of the most important data center markets in the world with growing requirements for diverse connectivity and dark fiber,” said Sean Baillie, Executive Vice President, Connectivity Strategy, QTS. “Bandwidth IG’s high count, diverse fiber will play a central role supporting our focus on creating a diverse connectivity ecosystem serving the Bay area and beyond.”
