Mammoth Networks wraps up build out of three new aggregation POPs

Mammoth Networks, a competitive facilities-based aggregator specializing on rural service providers, has put the finishing touches on three new aggregation Points of Presence (POPs) in Boise, Idaho, Phoenix, Ariz. and Portland, Ore.

When combined with new POP buildouts in Albuquerque, N.M. and Eugene, Ore., Mammoth now has 21 total POPs. Each of the new POPs, which will interface with four additional regional fiber providers, will serve as aggregation points for Mammoth and enable them to deliver services to other competitive providers and ILECs in Arizona, Idaho and Oregon.

By adding these three new POPs, Mammoth will be able to expand its support to metro and rural customers that need either TDM or Ethernet services.

Brian Worthen, CEO of Mammoth Networks, told FierceTelecom in a recent interview that by taking an agnostic approach that supports any legacy TDM or IP-based service as a single source wholesale aggregator is its main differentiator.

"We don't own the network," he said, adding that "we also don't specifically look at one specific product, but rather how do we reach every business in this multi-site network?"

Already, Mammoth's new POPs are gaining customer attention with the addition of three contracts at the Portland, Ore. POP and one anchor tenant at the Phoenix POP and a new partner.
