LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Uniti Group has deployed a 100-gig MPLS Core network that tracks with several key routes through the Southeast, including the Huntsville to Montgomery corridor, the company announced.
Uniti’s plans to upgrade more than 2,700 wireless carrier towers over the next three years.
Citing expansion plans for Huntsville, Birmingham, Montgomery and Tuscaloosa, Uniti said enterprise, medical, financial, government and education customers are attractive targets for growth.
“I couldn’t be more delighted to announce this enhancement to our network,” said Greg Ortyl, president of Wholesale and Strategic Accounts. “Customer experience, for both our wholesale and enterprise customers, is our top priority.
“The interoperability of this platform allows Uniti to deliver our solutions with even greater speed and simplicity, along with the scalability required to meet the unique needs of our customers.”
Uniti said it is replacing legacy systems that consumed 4 times the space and power. The move also improves its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint while increasing available capacity by more than 10 times.
This update will allow optimal routing for IP services to smaller towns and communities along those corridors across the Southeast, the company said.
