Telx recently announced nine new participants to its Ethernet Exchange Charter Customer program. Charter Customer new service providers include KDDI, Expereo, FiberLight, Intelepeer, Intellifiber Networks (News - Alert), IPNetZone, OneSource, Packet Exchange and RRSat.
"With its one-to-many network scalability features, Telx's Ethernet Exchange gives Intellifiber the ability to rapidly and cost-effectively extend our reach in the U.S., meeting our enterprise customers' increasing connectivity demands," said Clint Heiden (News - Alert), President, Intellifiber Networks, in a statement. "We selected Telx's Ethernet Exchange in the U.S. due to their market-leading carrier density in their strategic data centers, offering us the flexibility to extend our reach not only via virtual Ethernet connections, but also with physical interconnections."
A leading interconnection and colocation provider in strategic North American markets, today, Telx has turned up multiple Charter Customers on their platform and will continue to work with them on testing the service. The company is also assisting Charter Customers in building customer business models, buying and selling Ethernet service via the Telx Ethernet Exchange. Along with Ethernet Exchange, Telx has a full suite of interconnection options available, including physical cross-connects, Sonet-based Virtual Exchange services and Telx Internet Exchange (TIE) for IP peering connectivity, giving customers a wide choice of hybrid solutions that meet their full requirements.
"The Telx Ethernet Exchange Charter Customer program has assembled a high-value community of global and U.S.-based Ethernet service providers, who leverage the Exchange to meet the demand of their enterprise customers without the time and cost associated with establishing private network-to-network interface (NNI) connections," said Brad Hokamp, CMO of Telx, in a statement. "Through our relationship with Neutral Tandem (News - Alert), our customers also have access to all of the customers on the Neutral Tandem Ethernet Exchange in 14 U.S. locations, extending the community to over 20 service providers, for the largest Ethernet Exchange coverage in the U.S."
