GTT Communications, a leading global provider of managed network and security services to multinational organisations, has announced an expanded partnership with Ziply Fiber, a provider of fibre networks purpose-built for the Internet, to establish a new network Point-of-Presence (PoP) to serve the fast-growing data centre market in Portland, Oregon.
The new PoP is providing an initial 400G of capacity to customers in the US Pacific Northwest region and will expand the power of GTT’s global Tier 1 IP network by offering an additional option for customers to connect in 11 major data centres and the Hillsboro subsea cable landing station, expanding the reach of GTT via Ziply Fiber’s high-count Silicon Forest fibre cross-connection service.
GTT’s global Tier 1 IP backbone is ranked among the largest in the industry connecting more than 260 cities on six continents.
“This new PoP deployment creates an exciting opportunity to use the Ziply Fiber network to allow our regional data centre customers to easily connect to, and take advantage of, GTT’s global Tier 1 IP network,” said Jim Delis, President, Americas Division, GTT.
GTT recently announced a 400G upgrade to its Tier 1 IP network at multiple network layers including the core IP backbone and metro extensions.Click below to share this article
