phoenixNAP, a hosting provider delivering dedicated servers, colocation, cloud, cybersecurity solutions, storage, and more, has established a Point-of-Presence (PoP) in phoenixNAP’s flagship data center in Phoenix, Arizona.
The network PoP establishment would enable phoenixNAP clients to directly access 6×7 Networks’ encrypted Internet backbone, expanding their connectivity and security options.
As a fully end-to-end encrypted global telecommunications carrier, 6×7 Networks provides advanced security to organizations worldwide. With its presence in phoenixNAP’s data center, the company would be able to deliver IP transit services to a greater number of organizations and with enhanced stability. Located near the Phoenix metro area, phoenixNAP’s flagship data center is a strategic location for 6×7 Networks to access major domestic and global cross-connects.
“Our global carrier network has grown significantly over the last few years and we are excited 6×7 Networks is a part of that growth,” said Ian McClarty, president at phoenixNAP. “Our clients and tenants now have an option to directly access 6×7 Networks’ encrypted Internet backbone and improve their network security. This is an important step for us as we continue to add new data protection options to our portfolio of services and solutions.”
First Arizona Network PoP
6×7 Networks will leverage its first Arizona network PoP to further improve connectivity to its communication network. The additional connectivity point would help further optimize latency in delivering services and applications worldwide, ensuring greater efficiency for 6×7 Networks’ clients. phoenixNAP’s data center network spans across six continents through 30 data centers and network PoPs, providing complete global coverage.
For businesses in Arizona and beyond, this collaboration would bring a possibility to establish a more secure network, which is especially important for organizations operating under strict regulatory requirements.
