Seattle-based Wolfe said on Monday that it has chosen Open Data Centers’ Piscataway, N.J., facility for its first point of presence in the northeastern U.S.
Already serving several Open Data Centers customers, Wolfe says it can leverage ODC’s carrier-friendly operating environment in order to service its growing East Coast customer base.
“ODC can turn around cross connects in a matter of hours,” noted Michael Scott, general manager of Wolfe, “and their one-time, cross-connect fee model is very favorable for carriers looking to expand their footprint. We have access to many other transport providers at our fingertips.”
Wolfe, which provides Ethernet-based Internet and network VPN solutions, intends to use Piscataway as an interconnection point for its transport network, based predominantly in the Northwest, which began with the deployment of low-latency, high speed, transport facilities cross-country. Wolfe joins a number of fiber providers, incumbent local exchange carriers, competitive local exchange carriers, transport providers, ISPs and voice-services providers already present in the facility.
“The partnership between ODC, Wolfe and other data-center customers exemplifies the true benefits of carrier-neutral colocation, and we are proud to facilitate the relationships and interconnections between our carrier partners,” said Erik Levitt, CEO of Open Data Centers.
