Plans to augment network capacity in the region
Level 3 Communications said that it has expanded its operations and is enhancing its local presence in the Gulf Coast area, which includes New Orleans; Baton Rouge, La.; Jackson, Miss.; and Mobile, Ala.
In support of the local-expansion effort, Level 3 said that it is growing and realigning its local workforce in the Gulf Coast region. Through this initiative, the company plans to leverage existing network assets of more than 300 metro fibre route miles throughout the Gulf Coast area.
In addition, the company is also planning to augment network capacity in the region and expand the number of businesses that are directly connected to the Level 3 network.
Alan Aparicio, Gulf Coast general manager of Level 3, said: “The Gulf Coast is a dynamic region with a burgeoning technology sector, and Level 3’s extensive fiber footprint in the region ideally positions us to support that growth.
“This is a region where network reliability is the linchpin to building trusted relationships, and Level 3 continues to prove its value to an increasing number of Gulf Coast businesses.”
