Telehouse, a global colocation data center operator and a subsidiary of KDDI, has announced the availability of AT&T IP Transit, Mobility and Hosting services through its New York data centers. Telehouse owns and operates two colocation facilities within New York, including its Chelsea Data Center at 85 Tenth Avenue in New York City and The Teleport, its flagship location in Staten Island.
AT&T’s IP Transit, Mobility and Hosting services are available for immediate use at Telehouse’s Teleport location, with AT&T’S Chelsea data center build-out targeted for completion by the end of Q3.
In addition to its service offerings within Telehouse locations, AT&T also has a host of newly lit fiber buildings throughout the Tri-State area, New York City, Boston and Philadelphia, expanding Telehouse‘s reach throughout the East Coast and providing customers with faster connectivity and local access to AT&T data centers.
The announcement fortifies Telehouse and AT&T’s April 2013 partner alliance, formed to leverage the strengths of both organizations. Telehouse is also a platinum provider reselling AT&T Cloud, Colocation and Network services in the US. AT&T owns an eight percent stake in Telehouse and the companies’ business relationship spans more than 25 years.
“The alliance with AT&T offers Telehouse the opportunity to offer a more comprehensive solution to our customers and prospects,” said Sandra de Novellis, TELEHOUSE’s U.S. Director of Marketing. “By offering an extended domestic footprint of 22 AT&T-owned Tier III, carrier-neutral data centers in our own portfolio of 46 global locations, Telehouse is ideally positioned to accommodate our customers’ growing needs.”
150 NYIIX Members
At the same time, Telehouse has announced the completion of its upgrade to the new “Centillion” platform, to enhance the overall value of its New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX). By upgrading to the Centillion platform, NYIIX members would experience higher capacity and a more redundant infrastructure. The company is currently also experiencing high membership growth across its NYIIX and Los Angeles International Internet Exchange (LAIIX).
NYIIX continues to see a 50 percent increase in new activations since 2014 and is one of the largest peering exchanges in the Northeast. Telehouse’s West Coast peering exchange, LAIIX, will be expanding capacity in 2015.
We have seen tremendous growth and have over 150 NYIIX members as of today,” said NYIIX Founder and Telehouse VP of Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development Akio Sugeno.
The global availability of 42 Telehouse-branded data centers in 23 cities throughout Asia, Africa, North America and EMEA delivers continuous operation of network-dependent, IT infrastructure to businesses around the world.
