Cologix, one of North America’s leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale Edge data centre companies, has announced that it has expanded its partnership with Crosslake Fibre, an international Network Service Provider (NSP) and developer of long haul fibre routes.

The latest advancement includes the launch of a new Point-of-Presence (PoP) at Cologix’s MTL3 digital Edge data centre in Montréal, Canada, driven by the increasing customer demand for Crosslake’s services. 

This significant development builds upon Crosslake Fibre’s existing partnership with Cologix in Toronto, Canada, where the company operates a unique cross-lake submarine cable connecting essential financial and technology markets in Toronto, New York and Chicago.

The addition of the Montréal location now extends access to Crosslake’s global financial network Velocity and general network services, enhancing connectivity options for Cologix customers and reinforcing Crosslake’s position as a leader in international network services.

Cologix has a robust Canadian interconnection ecosystem of 350 networks, 200+ cloud providers, 15 public cloud onramps and three Internet Exchanges (IX). Currently, Cologix provides 75% of all public cloud onramps in Canada, including Amazon Web Services Direct Connect, Google Cloud Interconnect, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Oracle FastConnect.

“We understand the growing need within our ecosystem for connectivity solutions that cater to the changing data requirements of businesses, especially those embracing AI applications,” said Sean Maskell, President and General Manager of Cologix Canada. “This expansion empowers us to deliver scalable, secure and uninterrupted capacity to customers, offering the quickest, most efficient routes across diverse geographic locations.”
