American Tower opens newest edge data center in Pittsburgh
American Tower announced that its newest edge colocation facility in Pittsburgh is tenant ready, giving businesses across the Greater Pittsburgh area access to its Edge Data Center solution. American Tower notes it strategically selected the second-largest city in Pennsylvania for the facility, which provides additional connectivity options to the variety of Pittsburgh-based industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, information technology, and more.
“The vast combination of industries in the Pittsburgh area that require increased network elasticity and lower latency make our newest facility an ideal location for an Edge Data Center,” explains Whitney Pesot, Product Manager, U.S. Innovation for American Tower. “The increasing use of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices within the manufacturing and healthcare industries is creating more demand for fast connectivity closer to the edge. The city’s emerging artificial intelligence and robotics industry will also heavily rely on the low-latency environment edge facilities provide.”
