Global technology services company delivers redundant paths for Virginia-based Internet service provider

WBS Connect has recently signed an agreement to help Internet service provider (ISP) Sunset Digital Communications increase redundancy in their high-speed fiber-optic network. Sunset Digital, based in Southwest Virginia, added WBS Connect-provided network paths between Southwest Virginia and Atlanta, GA in order to attract new business and provide more reliable Internet access service and interoffice connectivity (layer 2 transport services) for their current customers.

"WBS Connect is very excited to be working with Sunset Digital as they build out their network," said Jake Cummins, National Sales Manager for WBS Connect. "Our product suite and capabilities are perfect complements to companies like Sunset Digital who are looking to cost effectively connect to multiple network providers at major Internet peering points."

WBS Connect has been providing high-speed connectivity for Sunset Digital for nearly two years. The implementation of these diverse fiber routes will allow the ISP to provide additional reliability for customers as well as attract new customers, bringing more economic development to Southwest Virginia.

"Large communications companies scouting for data center locations look for capacity and redundancy. We now have both," says Paul Elswick, President of Sunset Digital Communications. "The ability to obtain this kind of high-capacity connectivity is a huge leap forward for the area."

The WBS Connect services portfolio includes high speed Internet access, point-to-point data networking, Content Delivery Network (CDN) services, data center colocation, network consulting services, and cloud computing. In addition to its extensive technology framework built throughout North America, Europe, and now Asia, WBS Connect has partner relationships with over 35 major carriers across the globe.

About Sunset Digital Communications
Started in 2003, Sunset envisioned and constructed a state-of-the-art fiber optic network dedicated to provide broadband services to improve economic development and quality of life in Southwest Virginia and beyond. The Lenowisco Rural Area Network (R.A.N.) is a Gig-Ethernet, active fiber-optic network with fast, reliable and affordable broadband access to multiple physical infrastructures. This vision was possible, in part, thanks to grant funding from the Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission to Lenowisco Incorporated.
