Level 3 Extends Global Fiber Network Into TierPoint’s New York Data Center

TierPoint, a U.S. provider of cloud hosting, colocation, managed services and disaster recovery solutions, has announced that Level 3 Communications is extending its global fiber network into the company’s New York data center in Westchester County.

The Level 3 implementation in metropolitan New York City expands TierPoint’s Hawthorne-based carrier network. This brings the number of states in which TierPoint data centers have Level 3 on-net presence to seven, including its facilities in Washington, Texas, Oklahoma and Maryland.

“Level 3 enhances our portfolio of communication carriers, giving customers better redundancy, a stronger global footprint, and premium speed and reliability,” said Ralph Thomas, general manager of TierPoint New York. “In tandem with our cloud hosting and colocation managed services, Level 3 gives us another avenue to deliver exceptional customer service.”

Global Connectivity

The Level 3 build-out is taking place in phases. Today customers have access to a global connectivity solution that uses both TierPoint and Level 3. By the fall of this year, Level 3 expects to have completed a dual-entrance connection point directly into TierPoint’s Hawthorne data center designed for scalability and advanced failover capabilities.
