MAY 20, 2009 -- Telx, an interconnection and colocation data center operator, has chosen Fiberlight (search Lightwave for Fiberlight), a fiber-optic technology provider, to link its two Dallas-area data centers to 1950 Stemmons Freeway via a dark fiber ring. Customers installing equipment in one of Telx's two Dallas-area facilities can have low-latency access to more than 100 carrier and service providers located in the three locations over the Fiberlight optical transport network.
"Many customers choose Telx because of our ability to offer a myriad of network choices. This offers excellent growth potential for all types of businesses," says Rose Klimovich, vice president of product development and product management for Telx. "The addition of 1950 Stemmons Freeway to our Dallas ring offers additional bandwidth and circuit options to our customers, creating even greater possibilities for our customers."
The facility at 8435 Stemmons Freeway is also an option as a disaster recovery center since it is in a low threat zone.
"We are excited to continue our relationship in supporting Telx's efforts to offer network-rich, carrier-neutral interconnection facilities. FiberLight owns and operates one of the largest and most dense fiber networks in Texas and continues our growth with this new ring," says Ben Edmond, executive vice president of sales & marketing of Fiberlight. "We're pleased to be able to offer customers a comprehensive optical networking solution that includes high reliable bandwidth coupled with excellent interconnection capabilities."
