365 Data Centers has completed network upgrades in the Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Miami markets, which will increase network capacity, redundancy, and provide lower latency connectivity.

The provider of hybrid data centre services for carrier, content and enterprise customers has consistently broadened its portfolio of service offerings and made investments in infrastructure, technology and technical personnel in Southeast Florida. In October, 365 Data Centers also launched a new channel programme.

"The network infrastructure upgrades in Southeast Florida underscore 365 Data Centers' commitment to transforming from a connectivity-rich, colocation services business to a provider of hybrid data centre services," said James Ashton, director of network engineering at 365 Data Centers.

365 Data Centers recently connected its Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale data centres to all eight of its other data centre facilities, providing low cost access to 10 national data centres and 15 other points of presence (PoPs) for back-up, disaster recovery and connectivity.

Ashton added: "Moreover, in selecting Cisco, our current and prospective carrier and service provider customers will benefit from a technology leader whose high performing, reliable and high capacity connectivity solutions deliver a smarter, simpler and more secure network than ever before."

The network upgrades will utilise the Cisco NCS5500 and ASR core routing platforms with Nexus switches and enables 365 Data Centers to deliver the same high-quality services in Southeast Florida as it does in its other markets.

"365 Data Centers is making the right moves to prep its network to manage the intense demands of its customers who are looking for secure and reliable connections," said Sumeet Arora, senior vice president of service provider networks at Cisco.

"With cloud scale networking technologies like the Cisco NCS 5500 in play, it has laid the foundation for an automated, simplified and trusted network of the future that can easily scale to support the new services available throughout its Florida footprint."
