GTT Communications, a leading global provider of managed network and security services to multinational organizations, has announced an expanded partnership with Ziply Fiber, a provider of fiber networks purpose-built for the Internet, to establish a new network Point of Presence (PoP) to serve the fast-growing data center 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 centers and the Hillsboro subsea cable landing station, expanding the reach of GTT via Ziply Fiber’s high-count Silicon Forest fiber 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 center 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 global Tier 1 IP network at multiple network layers including the core IP backbone and metro extensions.Click below to share this article
