TLSN Makes Texas 1 the Austin Hub for its Long-Haul Fiber Network
By Anil Sharma
Data Foundry, a global provider of wholesale data center outsourcing, retail colocation, network services, Internet bandwidth, managed services and disaster recovery services, has announced that Texas Lone Star Network (TLSN) has selected Texas 1 as the Austin Hub for their long-haul fiber network.
Texas 1 is the most redundant and secure data center and disaster recovery solution available in Texas, said officials with Data Foundry, and is located in an area of dense fiber-optic connectivity.
From this strategic location, TLSN can create a long haul network that reaches more metro areas than any other telecommunications group in Texas.
The fiber node TLSN installed within the Texas 1 data center allows customers unparalleled network access through a highly comprehensive Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) backbone with multiple Ethernet rings.
TLSN, a consortium of 40 Rural Telecommunications Carriers in Texas, operates over 4,500 fiber route miles lit with DWDM offering 10Gig and 40G optical wavelength, Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and SONET transport services via Cisco (News - Alert) 15454 ONS Multiservice Transport Platforms (MSTP).
"We're very excited about the options Texas 1 provides us and our customers," Brad Seymour, general manager at TLSN, said in a statement.
"Installing our Point-of-Presence in Texas 1 allows us to make Austin one of the major hubs for our network which connects over 35 cities in Texas and an additional 6 cities in New Mexico," said Seymour.
"TLSN's installation at Texas 1 furthers our goal of offering our customers unmatched network choice," explained Edward Henigin, CTO at Data Foundry.
Fiber optic hubs such as this are the backbone for many service offerings, he added, and the company is excited about the opportunities this provides to the clients and the customers of TLSN.
