CenturyLink opens Technology Center of Excellence in Monroe

CenturyLink announced that it has officially opened its new 300,000 square foot Technology Center of Excellence in Monroe, La.

The CenturyLink Technology Center of Excellence includes a technology research and development lab, a network operations center and collaborative office and meeting space.

Employees of CenturyLink will work together to create innovative products and services for its customers from 26th March by moving in the new Technology center.

The company claims that the Technology center includes VoIP service which will allow the employees to stay connected whether they are in an office or anywhere inside or outside on the campus grounds working from their laptop.


CenturyLink is also pursuing a LEED certification for the new Technology center at the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system.

“We believe the Technology Center will help us accomplish the transition successfully. A key aspect of the Technology Center is the creation of a world-class research and development hub where we will be able to develop, test and run technology innovations that will help shape our future and serve our customers,” said Glen F. Post, III, CenturyLink CEO and president.

The new building also incorporates 37,000 square feet of View Dynamic  Glass, making this facility the single largest installation of electrochromic glass in the country.

This follows CenturyLink’s opening of a new data center in the greater Toronto area in August 2014. The datacenter supports up to 5 megawatts of IT load and 100,000 square feet of raised floor space.

CenturyLink’s public cloud platform is available in countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany. Recently the company also launched cloud services in Asia Pacific.

CenturyLink generated annual revenue of $18 billion in its financial year 2014.
