Impact Telecom Chooses Colo Atl Facility to Help Expand Cloud Operations

By Laura Stotler

Communications service provider Impact Telecom has teamed up with Colo Atl and is using the company’s facility to expand its cloud operations. Impact, which specializes in voice, messaging and data services, is taking advantage of Colo Atl’s network neutral colocation facility in downtown Atlanta and plans to beef up its solutions for enterprises and SMBs using its new resources.

Colo Atl’s facility includes more than 80 local, regional and global tenants with access to data center, colocation and interconnection services. Network operators and service providers can take advantage of the facility’s reasonable pricing structure and forge partnerships with other operators as well.

The move is part of Impact Telecom’s ongoing expansion efforts, which include a recent partnership with mobile commerce payment solutions provider, Mobetize Corp. Impact is using the Mobetize platform to provide international money transfer services as well as mobile airtime top-up and bill payments to better serve its customers.

"The Colo Atl colocation facility is top-of-the-line, and most surely meets our colocation needs as we look to further expand to the cloud market," said Chuck Griffin, chief operating officer of Impact Telecom.

With tenants like Georgia Technology Center, an organization that provides test bed and live production testing for network communications equipment, the Colo Atl facility offers massive opportunities for partnerships and expansion. The space also houses the Southeast Network Access Point (SNAP), which offers next-gen IX solutions including SDN peering, testing and implementation.

"As providers of business-class voice and data services, Impact has a strong need for the best possible colocation and interconnection services available today,” said Tim Kiser, owner and founder of Colo Atl. “Staying true to our mission, we are pleased to be able to meet these needs, on top of offering exceptional customer support and personalized attention; factors that are much appreciated in our fast-paced industry."

As part of its expansion efforts, Impact acquired Matrix Telecom and AmericaTel Corporation in 2013. Those efforts enabled the company to create a large VoIP network that carries billions of minutes per month. Impact also has the largest implementation of an IP-based network that is connected to the nationwide Feature Group D (FGD) network. The group boosts competition among carriers at the trunk level, enabling re-selection of the interexchange carrier by end user.
