Level 3 Expands Network in Georgia
Level 3 Communications announced plans to expand its network in Alpharetta, Georgia, a technology hub in the greater metropolitan Atlanta area. The project will provide local customers with access to Level 3’s enhanced network capabilities and portfolio of data, security, video, voice and unified communications solutions to support today’s emerging technologies that demand efficient, scalable and secure options. Upon project completion, Level 3 will have more than 300 on-net buildings and approximately 265 metro route miles in the greater Atlanta area, securely connecting hundreds of buildings directly to its network.
“As the sixth fastest growing city in the United States, Alpharetta has become the ‘Technology City of the South’ with serious needs for network infrastructure and access,” said Peter Tokar, economic development director for the City of Alpharetta. “Level 3’s expanded network and presence in the market will provide increased access and options for secure, global network connectivity – something all of the 600 plus companies here need with demands increasing daily.”
The expansion of the Level 3 network in Alpharetta will provide greater route diversity and increased capacity across the market so enterprises can focus on streamlining operations and growth. Level 3 monitors and maintains its network from end-to-end, providing secure and efficient services. Customers will benefit from cost-effective, alternative options to route traffic and connect between the greater Atlanta area and other business centers throughout the world.
“Alpharetta’s technological infrastructure has made it a hot spot for corporate headquarters, datacenters and branch locations,” said Edward Morche, senior vice president of East Region Enterprise and Government Markets for Level 3. “Our expanded network reach in Alpharetta places Level 3 at the center of it all and establishes us as a key gateway for information exchange across the region and around the globe.”
