COMPTEL PLUS — Global Telecom and Technology (GTT) announced that Telx now offers Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) connectivity via GTT’s network to its interconnection and colocation customers in eight key U.S. cities. Through this relationship, GTT’s GigE infrastructure will be available via Telx’s Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) solution, which the companies say gives customers even more high-performance connectivity choices.
“We are excited to provide services to Telx in eight of their carrier-rich colocation facilities,” said Richard D. Calder, Jr., GTT’s president and CEO. “As a global network integrator, we help companies like Telx build out their networks with reliable and secure connectivity, anywhere in the world. With GTT’s technology and expertise powering their network, Telx can continue to offer customers industry-leading connectivity choice.”
GTT has established relationships with more than 800 global network operators, allowing them to deliver network services nearly everywhere in the world. GTT’s experienced team is able to address even the most complex bandwidth and connectivity needs, the company said. By leveraging GTT’s GigE connections, Telx can offer a greater network capacity for its DIA service, a network-neutral environment delivering colocation and automated routing to provide a reliable, dedicated Internet connection for business customers. This allows Telx to provision connectivity services quickly, offering more flexibility on the speed and availability of IP throughput (10mb and 100mb, all on the same GigE connection) while also providing burst capability up to the full GigE speed.
“Telx has a long relationship with GTT, serving as their interconnection and colocation partner in eight key U.S. markets for four years,” said Eric Shepcaro, CEO of Telx. “We are pleased to bring the unique value proposition of GTT’s industry experience and innovative technology to our Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) customers, giving them more choice in secure, network-neutral, low-latency connections that meet their business communications needs.”
