Moscow-based carrier neutral data centre provider IXcellerate has announced that Mastertel is to establish a PoP in its Moscow One Data Centre.

Mastertel, which operates an extensive fibre network in Moscow and St Petersburg will establish a PoP and construct 264 fibres in to the premises.

IXcellerate began operations of Phase One in December 2012 on its 15000m data centre campus in North Moscow, with additional phases planned in the coming years.

The demand for carrier neutral data centres that are built and operated to western European standards continue to grow in Moscow, with multiple carriers operating in one environment to provide customers with a choice and redundancy.

“As one of the largest fibre providers in Moscow and its surrounding area, Mastertel’s presence in IXcellerate’s data centre will provide our clients with an additional option for connectivity,” said Guy Willner, CEO of IXcellerate. “This announcement is one more step towards making IXcellerate the most well connected data centre in Moscow.”
