By expanding its presence in carrier hotels at 60 Hudson and 111 8th Ave. in New York City, Switch and Data, an exchange and neutral colocation provider, says it has become the largest interconnection provider to telecom carriers, content providers, ISPs, VoIP providers and enterprises in the market.
The company now provides interconnection to more than 330 distinct networks.
Switch and Data also is the first neutral interconnection provider to provide Layer 1 and Layer 2 connectivity among top carrier hotels on the East Coast, 60 Hudson St. and 111 8th Ave. According to Switch and Data, the metro cross-connect offer allows carriers, ISPs, content providers and service providers immediate savings up to 50 percent by eliminating the need to colocate in both sites, as well as the need to connect via local loop to each building.
Switch and Data continues to invest in key markets such as New York to provide our customers the best options for their own expansion and growth, says Keith Olsen, CEO of Switch and Data. Companies providing VoIP, media/entertainment, online gaming and electronic exchange services complement the carriers and service providers who utilize us as a vital business exchange point. We now offer the greatest density of networks with 330 available in our interconnected facilities, which ensures our customers have the broadest selection of networks in a neutral marketplace for their business.
