Texas Lone Star Network (TLSN) has established a point of presence at Data Foundry’s newest colocation facility, Houston 2, located in North Houston. TLSN now offers connectivity to the Houston 2 data center at 10G, 40G and 100G.
TLSN deployed Cisco Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) capabilities connecting Data Foundry’s flagship data center, Texas 1 in Austin, Texas directly with Houston 2. TLSN, a consortium of 40 rural telecommunications carriers in Texas, also turned up its first optical wavelength – connecting customer traffic to both data center facilities.
“We are very excited to expand our network into Data Foundry’s Houston 2 data center and offer our customers connectivity to this world-class facility for secure colocation and managed services,” said Brad Seymour, TLSN’s General Manager. “TLSN now offers connectivity to both Houston 2 and Texas1 at 10G, 40G and 100G, which means customers have another good carrier option.”
With its member owners, TLSN operates one of the largest DWDM, Carrier Ethernet & IP/MPLS networks in Texas and New Mexico.
“We’re delighted to have TLSN’s fantastic Texas network as another option for our clients in our carrier-neutral data centers,” said Edward Henigin, Chief Technology Officer of Data Foundry. “They bring diversity with their unique footprint which gives our customers more flexibility in selecting high-performance networking services.”
Data Foundry controls and manages over 650,000+ square feet of data center facilities in Austin and Houston, Texas, as well as, a global network and colocation presences for deployments worldwide.
