Herndon, VA, – December 15, 2020 – ​EdgeConneX, developer of edge data centers, has announced Bandwidth Infrastructure Group (Bandwidth IG) is now available at its Atlanta data center campus, ATL01 and ATL02. This addition increases high capacity connectivity options for enterprises and service providers, offering them more speed and scalability to meet their expanding network needs.

As a metro dark fiber network provider, Bandwidth IG provides reliable network solutions to leading technology companies. The company promotes business growth by empowering digital acceleration and recently deployed a metro dark fiber network in the Greater Atlanta region. The new network consists of multiple rings with high-capacity fiber cables connecting the central business district to the increasingly important developments on the western side of the metro area.

“With its low natural disaster risk and high fiber density, Atlanta is home to many Fortune 500 companies and is a critical market for EdgeConneX,” comments Aron Smith, Vice President for Interconnection Product Management at EdgeConneX. “We proudly support our clients’ edge deployments with two data centers located near the downtown metro area. Location sensitivity is key when you are building the edge, and that is why we spurred a fundamental shift in bringing the data center to the edge in markets such as Atlanta. We look forward to working with the Bandwidth IG team as they serve the dark fiber and connectivity requirements of key organizations in the region.”

“Atlanta is fast becoming a crucial market for data-intensive businesses and the EdgeConneX campus is among the first sites we knew we had to include in our new network,” said Jim Nolte, CEO of Bandwidth IG. “The legacy fiber networks in Atlanta are all close to 20 years old and with many companies committing large-scale deployments here, we knew this market was in need of new, state-of-the-art infrastructure.”

Located at 1003 and 1101 Donnelly Avenue in southwest Atlanta, Georgia, ATL01 and ATL02 are three miles from downtown Atlanta. The facilities include over 120,000 sq ft of data center space with multiple data halls and ample space for additional expansion. The data centers are marked by:

  • Concurrently maintainable power with N+1 configuration
  • 20+kW per cabinet
  • 600+ watts per sq. ft.
  • Capacity for up to 14MW of power
  • 24/7 NOC services
  • On site security staff, plus multi-stage security containment systems with PIN and live video authentication

In addition, ATL01 and ATL02 customers are provided access to EdgeOS, a next generation data center operating system with over one million monitored data points across 18 subsystems on a single pane of glass providing real-time visibility, including ticketing and SLA management for all EdgeConneX data centers.
