If there’s one thing that is certain in today’s globalized, digital economy, it’s that having access to seamless, cost-effective connectivity has become essential for any enterprise that is serious about growing their business on a regional, national or global scale.
Infomart Data Centers recently announced that DE-CIX Dallas, the first network and data center-neutral Internet exchange in the market, is operational and available for service in its Infomart Dallas Building Meet-Me Room (BMMR) at 1950 N. Stemmons Fwy in Dallas. Customers can use this facility to further reduce latency and gain more control over routing paths via DE-CIX’s peering and interconnection services while also eliminating monthly cross-connect fees.
Connecting through Infomart Dallas’ BMMR is the fastest path to international and domestic content, network, cloud and Internet service providers (ISPs). Here, customers can gain direct access to more than 75 network carriers and all colocation customers.
DE-CIX is the first and only carrier-neutral Internet exchange in the Infomart Dallas BMMR, providing connections to multiple access points throughout the Dallas metropolitan market. In addition to DE-CIX, the BMMR houses Level 3 Communications, Unite Private Networks InnerCity FiberNet, Wirestar, Cogent Communications, FPL FiberNet and Served by the Net.
“The DE-CIX Dallas internet exchange has been well-received, enabling us to activate Infomart Dallas within six months of initial launch,” Ed d’Agostino, Vice President, DE-CIX North America Inc., recently commented. “This expansion allows more networks in the market to have easy access to our peering and interconnection fabric. Infomart’s BMMR customers are now just a cross-connect away from all networks connected to DE-CIX Dallas’ distributed peering fabric accessible across multiple data centers. Additionally, BMMR customers can leverage DE-CIX’s MetroVLAN service for private peering interconnections throughout the metro area.”
Infomart Data Centers President John Sheputis also remarked on the announcement.
“Our vision is to create an open and interconnected environment at the Infomart,” Sheputis stated. “We are enabling carriers and customers to further extend their interconnection options in what is already one of the most connected buildings in the U.S. DE-CIX Dallas plays an important part in helping us realize that vision.”
Infomart Dallas also happens to be the largest data center in Texas, and a major connectivity hub for the Southern U.S. It’s home to numerous colocation providers, as well as Infomart-operated wholesale colocation space for enterprise users that have edge connectivity requirements.
The facility was recently awarded the Management & Operations (M&O) “Stamp of Approval” certification by Uptime Institute.
