GTT Communications Inc., a global provider of managed network and security services to multinational organizations, has expanded its partnership with Ziply Fiber, a provider of fiber networks purpose-built for the internet, to establish a network point of presence (PoP) to serve the fast-growing data center market in Portland, Oregon. GTT also has unveiled a new brand identity.
The new PoP provides an initial 400G of capacity to customers in the U.S. Pacific Northwest region and will expand the power of GTT’s global Tier 1 IP network by offering an additional option for customers to connect in 11 major data centers and the Hillsboro subsea cable landing station, expanding the reach of GTT via Ziply Fiber’s high-count Silicon Forest fiber cross-connection service.
GTT’s global Tier 1 IP backbone is ranked among the largest in the industry and connects more than 260 cities on six continents. With the addition of the new Portland PoP, GTT customers in the region can benefit from the improved connectivity, security and scalability available through GTT’s suite of managed connectivity services.
Ziply Fiber’s network was designed to meet today’s increasing digital demands and was engineered to be fully redundant, with a dual infrastructure that maintains customer connections even when issues arise.
Ziply Fiber maintains a four-state footprint in Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington and has built redundancies into its network to avoid service interruptions while updating routing to steer clear of congestion across the broader internet. This ensures content is accessible directly on the fiber backbone and can be accessed more quickly.
