By Raju Shanbhag
Data plays a crucial role in a company’s success these days. Companies seek to have seamless access to digital data they produce every day, as it allows them analyze customer needs and respond to market demands well in time. This has resulted in data centers becoming the core of a modern communications infrastructure.
Exploring opportunities in this field, Sidera Networks (News - Alert) has announced that the company has brought its dark fiber and lit services to the largest data center park in Elk Grove, IL. A new route has been established between Chicago and three data centers in Elk Grove Village, where Sidera will provide its services in that region.
The dark fiber network solutions provided by Sidera allows companies to have unlimited bandwidth to satisfy the demands from the users. It also provides network security and offers numerous connectivity options to satisfy diverse needs of its clients.
Elk Grove is home to large companies, financial centers and media organizations. This new data center park will provide high-capacity bandwidth to these companies. It will also provide dedicated fiber to three data centers in Elk Grove. The company has also planned more network connectivity to data centers in Wood Dale.
"This expansion enhances Sidera's network capabilities within the Chicago-metro market to deliver unparalleled high-performance connectivity not just to Chicago and Aurora, where we have network today, but also to data center parks such as Elk Grove and Wood Dale," comments Clint Heiden (News - Alert), president of Sidera Networks. "This is an important market, not just for financial services, but also for content, Cloud, and media because of its central location between the US coasts. This announcement reiterates our commitment to connect the most data centers throughout our network footprint.”
Recently, the company partnered with Lightower Fiber Networks to be acquired by Berkshire Partners.
