Hutchison launches Blue City interconnection platform

17 May 2012 |


Hutchison Telecommunications has launched a neutral interconnection platform at ITW through its subsidiary, NextGen MultiMedia.

Blue City is designed to provide carriers with a neutral platform to manage local and international colocation, demuxing and interconnection as well as virtual meet-me room-related services. The platform is also designed to offer carriers their own choice of international connectivity.

Bundled facilities offered by Blue City include physical or virtual colocation, cross-connects and local loops. The platform functions by allowing carriers to tap into an ingress port at their nearest BlueCity PoP.

Among the advantages of the service claimed by Hutchison are low cost meet-me-room connectivity and flexible global data centre resources

“Shortage of data centre space and power represents an ever-upward colocation cost curve,” said Braham Singh VP and senior adviser at NextGen. It is against this background that Blue City service was launched.”
