Arelion Adds Some Fiber Out West

May 4th, 2023 by · Leave a Comment

The global network operator Arelion continues to invest in its North American footprint, adding diversity and depth to the company’s offerings. Yesterday they revealed plans to launch of a new fiber route between Denver and the San Francisco Bay Area.

The new route passes through Salt Lake City and Reno, going straight over the Rockies and through the desert of northern Nevada. In Denver the network connects two Flexential facilities, including a new PoP at the Centennial campus. In Salt Lake City it touches two DataBank Facilities, two Flexential sites, and EdgeConneX’s SLC01 location. In Reno they have a new PoP at Switch’s Citadel campus, and in the Bay Area it hits key locations of Digital Realty, Equinix, and CoreSite among others.  If all goes well, the new route should be live by the end of the quarter.

It’s Arelion’s fourth east-west route, adding diversity to their gilobal IP backbone as well as expanding the reach of their other data services. The route is also enabled with up to 400G wavelengths via the latest optics. We just had Arelion’s Chief Network Evangelist Matthias Fridstrom here for a chat on Monday, where he talked about the company’s approach to network expansion and more.
