Syringa Networks establishes Utah network presence

Syringa Networks, a regional wholesale service provider targeting the Idaho-Utah region, has officially lit up its network services in the Utah market. This move follows an announcement it made in early 2010 for its expansion plans into Northern Utah.

Seeing growing demand for cloud-based services, Syringa's Utah expansion includes three main components.

To give existing and potential new customers a hands-on service experience, Syringa purchased a 30,000 square foot building in West Valley City, Utah to serve as its not only its Utah operations office, but also as a CO (central office) for its telecom gear an network interconnections.

On the network side, Syringa completed a fiber network ring and an MPLS node Salt Lake City that can serve businesses with high speed optical and IP-based services.

Greg Lowe, Syringa Networks CEO, said that the service provider is fashioning itself as "an alternative to current providers and that "opening an office is the next step in serving the business community throughout the Wasatch front."
