News : Windstream Expands Partnership with Cologix
Little Rock, AK, USA, Aug 10, 2016 -- Windstream (NASDAQ: WIN), a provider of network communications, announced it has recently completed construction of a new colocation point of presence (PoP) in Dallas, Texas, and plans to complete construction of a new colocation PoP in Columbus, Ohio, in October – both in facilities operated by Cologix, a network-neutral interconnection and data center company. This adds to Windstream’s already-established presence in the Cologix Minneapolis and Jacksonville data centers, and aligns with Windstream’s continued aggressive Data Center Interconnect (DCI) efforts, adding carrier neutral data centers to its network and giving its wholesale and enterprise customers more options to access cloud resources.
The addition of these sites offers Cologix customers access to Windstream’s fiber network.

The Cologix Columbus facility is strategically located at the convergence point for national carrier long-haul and regional carrier fiber networks in Central Ohio, providing an advantageous site for disaster recovery deployments backing up primary sites in Chicago and New York. The Dallas data center is located in the renowned INFOMART building and offers 40,000 SQF of data center colocation space.
"As Windstream continues executing on our network expansion strategy, it is imperative that we constantly evaluate the optimal interconnection locations in our markets," said Clay Madar, senior product manager for Windstream’s wholesale business unit, who is leading the company’s DCI initiative. "Cologix is an ideal fit for Windstream, in part due to their key facility locations in booming business epicenters such as Minneapolis, Dallas and Columbus, but also due to our shared mission of using industry leading solutions to provide an exceptional experience for wholesale and enterprise customers."
"Windstream is committed to quickly meeting consumers’ evolving demand for superior network and cloud solutions in strategic edge markets where we continue to see explosive growth," said Wayne Dietrich, chief sales officer for Cologix. "Windstream is a key customer of ours already in Jacksonville and Minneapolis, and we look forward to introducing them to our ecosystem and supporting their continued success in Dallas and Columbus."
