Arelion has announced the expansion of its Atlanta metro network and new connectivity to the surrounding areas in Douglas County with the addition of a Point of Presence (PoP) in Switch ATLANTA, Switch’s data centre facility located at its Keep Campus in Lithia Springs, Georgia. Switch is an independent leader in exascale data centre ecosystems, Edge data centre designs, industry leading telecommunications solutions and next-generation technology innovation. This expansion enables access to Arelion’s number one Internet Backbone, AS1299, providing users and businesses with diverse, direct, high-speed connectivity options at the network edge. The most recent expansion reduces the need for routing through downtown Atlanta, offering enhanced speed and diversity connecting suburban scale campuses to support ongoing growth.

Arelion has invested in these new Atlanta metro networks to meet the accelerating demand for high-capacity bandwidth in the region. With this increased demand, Switch campuses offer Arelion’s high-speed, secure Internet backbone to meet the growing connectivity needs of their end-users. Wholesale customers now have access to scalable, interconnected hubs with sustainable connectivity.

“The expansion is in response to the need and demand for high-capacity bandwidth in the region,” said Art Kazmierczak, Director of Business and Network Development, Arelion. “Our continued investment helps further establish the Atlanta metro area as one of the top connectivity hubs in the country. Specifically, the hyperscale campus expansions in Douglas County and Lithia Springs help relieve some of the strain on the legacy carrier hotels in the area without compromising performance speed, connectivity diversity or bandwidth capabilities.”
