Omaha, Nebraska based colocation data center 1623 Farnam has added PacketFabric to its network ecosystem. PacketFabric’s highly scalable Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) technology would offer private, hybrid, and multi-cloud connection on demand in minutes. PacketFabric will now be closer to its Midwest clients as a result of this strategic partnership, while colocation clients at 1623 Farnam will have more connection alternatives.
“Digital businesses are continuously looking for ways to improve user experience delivery, and latency matters,” said Jezzibell Gilmore, Co-Founder and Chief Commercial Officer at PacketFabric. “We’re delighted to work with 1623 Farnam, offer our customers the opportunity to establish a presence in a high-quality data center at the midpoint of the U.S., and power private network solutions and emerging edge-based applications.”
The arrival of PacketFabric is just the most recent addition to 1623’s fast growing network ecosystem. A prominent hyperscaler updated its 1623 port from 40G to 100G earlier this year, while Akamai Technologies, a leading edge and cloud services provider, extended its presence at 1623 from a single 40G port to two 100G ports. Arelion, one of the world’s largest Internet backbone provider (formerly known as Telia Carrier), extended its network capacity and capabilities at 1623 Farnam in January this year.
Interconnection, Low Latency, Network Resiliency
“We are always growing our ecosystem to provide the greatest interconnection opportunities for our customers, and we are thrilled to welcome PacketFabric,” said Todd Cushing, president of 1623. “1623 Farnam is the ‘easy button’ for organizations to accelerate their digital transformation. Our customers have a high level of network assurance with easy access to 100G redundancy, enterprise-grade, carrier class interconnection, very low latency, and full network resiliency. They do not have to compromise anything anymore.”
As a data center colocation provider, 1623 Farnam offers a network ecosystem of 50 network providers that serve the local, regional, national, and worldwide markets. Located in the center of the U.S. Midwest, 1623 Farnam would reach nearly five million people and many Fortune 500 enterprises in Nebraska.
