MAY 10, 2010 -- Colo5 LLC, a provider of broadband services and data center co-location services in Jacksonville, FL, announced the activation of a custom-built, dedicated, private fiber-optic ring throughout metro Jacksonville. The OC-192 connection is a fiber-optic network transmission line designed to serve customers that seek redundant, self-healing local access at reduced cost.

Colo5's Jacksonville fiber-optic metro ring connects its data centers to telecom carrier hotels in Jacksonville, enabling access to more than 15 independent telecom network providers. These locations include 550 Water Street, 421 West Church Street, and 424 N. Pearl Street. This configuration will add significant value to Colo5's customers via broader access to more carriers and more competitive pricing for access and bandwidth, the service provider asserts.

"We are extremely excited that our ring is up and that our clients are already benefiting from the enhanced access and attractive cost savings," said Colo5 CEO, Doug Recker. "Our ring differentiates Colo5 from other data centers locally, and we expect that many more Jacksonville customers will realize similar benefits from operating on it," he closed.
