LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Windstream Wholesale, a leading provider of advanced network communications, today announced that it will expand its core network into NJFX's international landing station in Wall Township, N.J., adding capacity to Ashburn, Va.; Newark/New York City, and other major data center markets.

"This buildout with its connections to Wall Township, N.J., will provide enterprises, international carriers and content providers fast access from our coast-to-coast network to major subsea cable systems. Our network expansion strategy also includes easy access to other international networks through our links in Texas and South Florida and to Asia Pacific cable systems on the West Coast," said Joe Scattareggia, executive vice president of Wholesale at Windstream Enterprise and Wholesale.

This new core network route will utilize Infinera's DTN-X to create express routes to these locations resulting in better latency and network scalability that ultimately results in improved performance and savings for Windstream Wholesale customers. Windstream expects to begin turning up these routes in the fourth quarter of 2018.

"Innovation is the heart of our business, and our partnership with Windstream Wholesale is an example of how we can help companies respond more quickly to bandwidth demands and ensure their customers stay ahead of the competition," said Dr. Dave Welch, Infinera co-founder, chief strategy and technology officer and director.

In addition to Wavelengths, Ethernet Solutions and Dedicated Internet Access, Windstream Enterprise & Wholesale offers a range of complementary network and communications solutions to wholesale and resale customers including SD-WAN Wholesale, proprietary OfficeSuite White Label and Cloud SIP and PRI that are collectively designed to help wholesale customers increase productivity, improve ROI and win.
