Lumos to connect to Telxius cable landing station in Virginia Beach

Wednesday 7 March 2018 | 19:25 CET | News

Lumos Networks, a fibre-based service provider in the Mid-Atlantic region, will connect to the Cable Station Landing Station (CLS) in Virginia Beach by linking the company’s fibre network to an existing building at 1632 Corporate Landing Parkway in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This building is currently being converted into a carrier-neutral co-location facility operated as Globalinx. The Globalinx co-location facility is a short distance from the Cable Station Landing Station (CLS), which is operated by Telxius and located at 1900 Corporate Landing Parkway. Consequently, upon the completion of connectivity into the Globalinx facility, Lumos Networks will be on-net and connected to the CLS. 

At present, there are two undersea cables that are expected to be carrying traffic to the Virginia Beach CLS during 2018, Marea and Brusa. The first is jointly owned by Telefonica (Telxius), Microsoft and Facebook and is expected to become operational in the first quarter of 2018 and will connect the CLS with Spain. The second is 100 percent owned by Telefonica (Telxius) and is forecast to become operational in the back half of 2018 and will connect the CLS with Brazil.
