DE-CIX confirms that DE-CIX Dallas has extended its network with a new switch at its new point of presence (PoP) in DataBank’s downtown data centre.

The additional PoP will offer networks collocated in DataBank’s various Dallas facilities the ability to connect directly to DE-CIX’s Dallas IX, giving them access to over 60 networks. In addition, the new DE-CIX PoP will give networks across the Dallas market the ability to connect to a major peering exchange while remaining fully diverse from 1950 N. Stemmons, home to a number of data centre tenants including Equinix, zColo, Cologix, and Flexential.

“DE-CIX Dallas is committed to providing network operators in the Dallas metro market the greatest number of interconnection options,” said Ed d’Agostino, vice president and general manager of DE-CIX North America. “We’re excited to be expanding and adding a great new partner like DataBank. Our partnership provides the market with a new and ideal diverse solution and offers a great place for single-site networks within the Dallas market to connect to a world-class peering exchange. Networks of all types, including those that are looking for diversity from Infomart, will find an excellent new home for their equipment with DataBank.”

DE-CIX Dallas leverages connectivity to multiple data centres to deliver interconnection capabilities and access to over 60 networks across its platform. Using a standard cross connect operators can reach DE-CIX Dallas and a growing number of data centre facilities throughout the local market. Additionally, networks throughout the entire Southwest that currently lack a presence in Dallas can access DE-CIX via transport connections and benefit from peering, enhancing connectivity throughout the region.

“This partnership with DE-CIX enables our customers to leverage connections to a leading carrier-neutral platform with the most cost-effective and efficient interconnection options available in the market,” added Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank. “As a result, DataBank now provides an ideal location for customers seeking diversity from facilities like 1950 N. Stemmons. In addition to our downtown location, networks can also access DE-CIX Dallas from our Richardson and Plano data centres.”

In July, Telxius and DE-CIX partnered to offer access and interconnection services from any global Telxius point of presence to the DE-CIX Internet Exchanges in Marseille, Madrid, New York, Dallas and Frankfurt.
