Cologix™ has announced that Hurricane Electric has established a point-of-presence (PoP) at Cologix’s Dallas INFOMART data center. The new PoP, leveraging Cologix’s Standard Connections product, will enable Hurricane Electric to expand its global network reach to access demand from a new set of network customers in Dallas. With this deployment, Hurricane Electric has presence in each market across Cologix’s North American platform.

“We are continually growing our global network reach, and are pleased to take advantage of Cologix’s Standard Connections offering in Dallas,” said Reid Fishler, Hurricane Electric’s director of Carrier Services. “Leveraging Standard Connections allows us to offer our services directly to Cologix’s growing customers base without significant risk, which creates an important on-ramp for us given the demand we expect to see from customers moving into their newly opened facility.”

With data centers in Dallas, Minneapolis, Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver, Cologix provides one of North America's largest neutral marketplaces where network operators and network buyers interconnect. Cologix offers over 300 network choices, manages thousands of interconnections and has over 550 customers that utilize Cologix’s colocation and interconnection services to scale their networks’ needs rapidly and cost-effectively. Cologix’s Standard Connections product provides a low cost, low risk rack unit based Ethernet switch environment that allows customers to interconnect to any carrier or customer with a presence in Cologix's data center.

“Hurricane Electric provides a unique set of network services that are often requested from customers across our North American platform and we are happy to introduce them as a provider option for our customers in the INFOMART,” stated Rob DeVita, general manager, Cologix Dallas. “We believe Hurricane Electric’s deployment is an excellent model of how to leverage our Standard Connections product to expand a network’s addressable market.”
