Windstream’s access network transformation initiative is driving the modernization of networks and facilitating the deployment of new technologies and increased bandwidth for network coverage. Velankani’s professional services & NDDI’s platform will help Windstream dramatically improve utilization of its network assets which includes leveraging existing copper assets as well as planning new fiber construction.
