We’re proud to bring these latest enhancements to our facility to better serve our current and future customers.

Inside The Underground

A very exciting development is taking place 85-feet below the Earth. Bluebird has just begun hosting the Springfield Internet Exchange (SpringIX), the first-ever internet exchange located in Springfield, Missouri. Peered with and operated by the Kansas City Internet Exchange (KCiX), members of SpringIX will be able to offload their local traffic and benefit from content and “eyeballs” hosted by KCiX. This development is huge for high-bandwidth customers in the region and is one more example of Bluebird working to underpin the technologies moving the digital world forward.

Behind the Network

To achieve the high-level of performance expected of 5G networks, more small cell sites utilizing the millimeter wave spectrum will be needed, relying heavily on fiber cabled connections for the backhaul and fronthaul portions of the network. Fiber is the ideal choice due to its scalability, security and ability to handle vast amounts of backhaul traffic being generated across these multiple small cell sites. It can handle 5G’s increased speeds, is immune to electromagnetic interference, and offers practically unlimited bandwidth potential. As 5G continues to grow, so will the need for densifying and expanding the fiber infrastructure to support it. Bluebird is proud to be trusted by the world’s largest cell service providers in the planning and implementation of their 5G networks.

Customer Testimonial
Bluebird has the pleasure of working with customers spanning across several industries – here are some of the kind words they have to say.

CSI is a Financial Technology Company servicing the technology needs of customers across the country. Inside the network and telecom side of CSI, we focus on being a “soup to nuts” service provider for our community banks. CSI is also a CLEC focused on providing interconnect/wholesale circuits. This allows us to secure and support an ‘end to end’ connectivity solution for our customers.

With Community Banks across the country, this means we need to partner with many local and rural telecommunications companies for the local fiber/ethernet access. Bluebird helps us solve that problem. Bluebird provided us with the ability to be a partner with these companies by building fiber in their communities and providing backhaul to mutual regional data centers. Partnering with Bluebird allows CSI to create a seamless network and secure connectivity solution in multiple local markets.

In the financial technology industry, CSI works with many providers. However, if we have a chance to work with Bluebird, we take it. With excellent customer service, fantastic support, and superior account management, Bluebird jumps to the top of the list of companies we want to work with.

Beyond their customer service, Bluebird’s willingness to truly ‘partner’ with us is strategic and unique. Bluebird is willing to work with us at a level of partnership where many of the large Telco companies fail. Some companies force us to make 12 calls to get anything done. When we have a unique opportunity or need involving Bluebird, we call Kevin. It’s that simple. They’ve been great to work with and they make our jobs easier.
