American Tower announced the launch of the Data Center Channel Partner program, expanding its market reach for collocation and carrier-neutral data centers.
The new program offers channel partners exclusive access to the American Tower Metro and Edge Data Centers for a distributed network architecture, which supports improved network elasticity and provides infrastructure ready for 5G and advanced applications.
“Our Channel Partner program is designed to best support enterprise customers with experienced and committed channel partners, providing the expertise and solutions that enable new business opportunities,” said David Fox, Director of Business Development, American Tower.
American Tower began offering Data Center services in 2019, beginning with one Metro Data Center in Atlanta. Six additional Edge Data Centers were added in Atlanta, Georgia; Austin, Texas; Boulder, Colorado; Denver, Colorado; Jacksonville, Florida; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Leveraging existing real estate at the base of the towers, additional sites can develop quickly and at scale, based on market needs.
“As organizations look to offer data processing confidence to the edge, the American Tower Channel Partner program provides value, solutions and new revenue stream opportunities,” said Janet Schijns, Chief Executive Officer, JS Group.
