phoenixNAP seals ExcelliPath data connectivity deal for customers

Arizona PoP

A new PoP comes on the back of service expansion in both the US and Europe, including with a major connectivity-as-a-service provider.

Data centre services firm phoenixNAP has added an ExcelliPath point-of-presence at its flagship Phoenix, Arizona data centre. ExcelliPath is a provider of colocation and IP transit services.

The deployment expands carrier options for phoenixNAP’s clients and provides a strategic new interconnectivity point for ExcelliPath. ExcelliPath provides IP transit and colocation services out of 20 US states, ensuring nationwide availability.

IP transit enables organisations to access network and bandwidth resources to achieve availability, stability and redundancy. IP transit through ExcelliPath is provided under no contract and it can be activated “in less than 24 hours in most locations”, said the service provider.

“ExcelliPath joins our carrier-neutral Meet-Me-Room to provide additional connectivity options for our clients and tenants,” said Ian McClarty, president at phoenixNAP. “Its global IP transit service will enable organisations to cost-effectively improve their speed, increase throughput and ensure redundancy.”

phoenixNAP’s dedicated carrier-neutral Meet-Me-Room is home to over 40 network, bandwidth, and telecom carriers. The Phoenix facility is located near major domestic and international fibre routes and connects to the company’s 15 data centres and network PoPs globally.

Chris Trower, CEO of ExcelliPath, said: “We are working with phoenixNAP on enabling new connectivity options for Arizona-based organisations and those looking to expand their presence in the region. Our deployment provides a strategic new interconnectivity point to our network for organisations looking to improve their data transport security and speed.”

A year ago, phoenixNAP deployed PacketFabric’s Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform at its Phoenix site. Shortly after that, the company established a new network PoP in Milan, Italy. With the Milan node, phoenixNAP brought its European presence to a total of six locations.
