Telcentris Inc recently announced that it has launched a data center at the well-known Equinix (News - Alert) collocation facility located at 60 Hudson St., New York. In the past, Telcentris had all its data center operations and facilities located in the West Coast. With this launch, the company aims to extend its services on the East Coast.
In a release, Kevin Hertz, CTO, Telcentris (News - Alert) said, “We have been working on this project for some time and are thrilled to see it come to fruition. 60 Hudson St. is a premier data center location and our presence there reinforces key quality and reliability benefits to our current and future customers.”
Telcentris aims to enormously augment its capacity for managing voice and data traffic with the implementation of a key data center facility on the East Coast. In the past, Telcentris was utilizing the services of third-party offerings like Amazon’s AWS for ensuring geographic redundancy. The data center on the East Coast will now complement the data center on the West Coast during disruptions like natural disasters, carrier problems, or any other type of incident impacting the physical structure or its contents.
The company aims to extend its CLEC, or competitive local exchange carrier, footprint through the latest data center in New York. As a CLEC, the company will be able to offer services like telephone numbers, local and long distance calling, and data access using its own network. Telcentris will therefore be able to stay in the race with other incumbent local exchange carriers ILECs like AT&T (News - Alert).
Since 2009, Telcentris has been a facilities-based CLEC in California. With all the necessary regulatory endorsements, the company has been building countrywide CLEC infrastructure in other states. Telcentris hopes to enjoy the CLEC advantages in New York with the launch of the new data center. Telcentris will also be able to offer additional advantages like providing free phone numbers with local New York area codes to consumers of its VoxOx (News - Alert) service.
Bryan Hertz, CEO, Telcentris said, “Expanding our CLEC footprint is a major feat for us. Now that the New York data center has been deployed, only a few minor steps remain in getting our CLEC live in the country’s largest metropolitan center.”
