New Continuum Holdings Corporation has announced that ISI Communications, Inc. has relocated its network core and primary critical service functions to New Continuum’s West Chicago facility. ISI leverages connections to United IX in the facility to optimize IP and transport traffic routing for its customers in rural northern and western Illinois communities.

ISI has been serving the regional community within the same business park as New Continuum for over 10 years, bringing advanced fiber optic services to government agencies, institutions and local businesses. By utilizing United IX, ISI is uniquely able to deliver cost savings and efficient traffic routing from the closest possible location to its customer base. The companies also announced a joint marketing agreement to provide seamless service delivery of colocation and network connectivity across the companies’ product portfolios.

New Continuum is a leader in defining next generation, multi-tenant data center services. Its flagship data center in West Chicago is engineered for maximum flexibility, providing ample power redundancy and cooling to maximize server density. Adding to its service capabilities is the facility’s rich connectivity options and optimal traffic routing enabled through its partnership with United IX, a network neutral software-enabled interconnection platform.

“We are excited to welcome ISI and its customers to our facility,” said Eli D. Scher, chairman & CEO, New Continuum. “ISI has a unique network reach, that combined with our capabilities, can deliver true value in an edge compute model.”

“We are equally excited by the potential of this combination. ISI’s on-net communities and businesses can now easily access New Continuum’s complementary infrastructure services.”

“With ISI’s reach on existing fiber optic infrastructure and New Continuum’s rich ecosystem of service provers, our customers will be able to take advantage of carrier hotel-like interconnection in the western Chicago suburbs,” said Dan Howard, managing partner of ISI.
