Epsilon expands colocation footprint to North America with Metcom data center acquisition

Company to deploy its platform as a service (PaaS) cloud-centric networking solution to serve the Big Apple and the whole of America.

Communications provider Epsilon has acquired Metcom Network Services to expand its cloud-networking and colocation portfolio in the US.

Metcom Network Services is a provider of connectivity and colocation services across the greater New York metro market.

Through the acquisition, Epsilon has added a data centre in the Big Apple which serves the Downtown Financial District.

Epsilon will now deploy its platform as a service (PaaS) cloud-centric networking solution through established interconnect, cross connect and colocation facilities at 60 Hudson, 75 Broad Street, and PoP’s at 111 8th Avenue, 32 Ave of the Americas and various other telecoms hubs in the region.

The New York hub adds to other already under Epsilon’s management in Singapore, Hong Kong and London.

With the acquisition, Epsilon’s Director of Global Procurement & Access Management Paul Verhoeven becomes its General Manager, Americas.

Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon, said: “We are very excited to announce the acquisition of Metcom’s assets as this provides Epsilon with a perfect entry point into the US Market.

“The US is the world leader in Cloud and it is critical that we have a growing presence in the market and the ability to serve our US customers locally, regionally and around the world.”

Paul Verhoeven, General Manager, Americas at Epsilon, said: “The US has the most open and dynamic Cloud market in the world.

“I see a lot of potential in our newly acquired footprint in greater New York but also in metro markets across the US. Service providers of all kinds can benefit from Cloud-centric networking that is ready to support the Channel.”
