These three bring the total number of carriers to more than 18, and together with multiple SD-WAN vendors, extend AireSpring’s growing profile as a managed services provider.
“These advanced Ethernet carriers offer our customers greater choice than ever and demonstrate AireSpring’s 100 percent commitment to exclusively serving our channel partners with a growing inventory of fiber lit buildings across the country,” said Daniel Lonstein, AireSpring’s chief operating officer. “We are excited to add these three leading providers and will announce more in the coming weeks.”
Frontier supplies advanced carrier-grade Ethernet services across its 29-state footprint throughout the United States. Its expanded service supports improved overall speed and efficiency of ordering and provisioning, with the capability to fulfill any network need. AireSpring said its customers will have connectivity with speeds up to 1 Gbps, ideal for quickly moving large volumes of data.
Zayo’s 124,000 route-mile network in North America and Europe includes connectivity to more than 30,000 buildings. Zayo is available for a range of AireSpring products, including managed connectivity with quality of service (QoS), SD-WAN, managed fallover and business internet.
The Lightower Network covers 33,000 route miles across the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest, with connectivity to more than 15,000 service locations, delivering customized connectivity and high-capacity bandwidth where and when it is needed — all on end-to-end fiber optics. The new partnership provides greater connectivity and faster provisioning times for AireSpring customers.
AireSpring’s services are offered through a network of channel partners that includes distributors, master agents, MSPs and VARs. The services are delivered over its nationwide MPLS mesh network.
