NexGen Networks Expands Globally on Platform Equinix

By CIOReview | Tuesday, September 8, 2015

REDWOOD, CA: NexGen Network, a provider of ultra-high speed fiber-optic services has recently expanded their reach by deploying new network Points of Presence (PoPs) in its Tokyo (TY3) and Frankfurt (FR2) data centers with the help of Platform Equinix.

The latest expansion is expected to add significant coverage of the APAC region for NexGen customers. Leveraging Platform Equinix for nearly a decade to scale its business, NexGen is capable of providing an ultra-low latency route between Europe and Asia to meet the needs of global enterprises.

NexGen Networks has already established its presence in many cities around the world including Chicago, New York, London, and Philadelphia. Tokyo and Frankfurt are its recent addition.

Partly because of Equinix’s partnership with DE-CIX Frankfurt, the largest internet exchange point in the world, the centrally located FR2 data center in Frankfurt is one of the world’s most carrier-dense. It also ensures that the customers have access to the most critical infrastructure in the key financial and commercial centers of the planet along with providing access to direct and settlement-free IP interconnection infrastructure in Germany.

At Equinix’s TY3 data center, NexGen will deliver local and regional 10GB wavelength or traditional Ethernet services, as well as offering connections from TY3 over the RJCN/TEA and PC1 routes, which will particularly benefit financial institutions that require low latency options to equities markets in Europe and U.S. Additionally, NexGen clients will be able to take advantage of premium colocation, interconnection and support services at the facility, which forms major peering and Internet exchange point for the Asia-Pacific region with connections to the Japan's two largest financial exchanges—the Tokyo Futures Exchange (TFX) and the Tokyo Commodities Exchange (TOCOM).

Equinix owns more than 100 International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers in 33 markets.  By providing additional capacity on its fiber backbone, NexGen Networks is able to more effectively meet the growing needs of global enterprises which are adopting hybrid cloud and require up to 100GB of bandwidth or transport between Equinix data centers and back office. Enterprises looking to build a multi-cloud architecture can also tap into Equinix's cloud ecosystem of more than 500 cloud service and directly connect to top providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft ExpressRoute, and Google Cloud Platform on the Equinix Cloud Exchange.

NexGen's continued expansion on Platform Equinix is the latest in a series of proactive data center deployments globally to ensure that clients can leverage the most advanced and reliable infrastructure.
