Cogent Deploys PoP in HostDime’s Guadalajara Mexico Data Center

HostDime, a pioneer in global edge data center infrastructure, has announced that Cogent Communications has deployed a Point of Presence (PoP) in HostDime’s Tier III data center in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Cogent’s large global network footprint brings enhanced global connectivity options to HostDime’s Mexico clients and expands Cogent’s on-net network presence in Mexico.

Cogent is a multinational, Tier-1 facilities-based ISP that has built one of the largest and highest capacity IP networks in existence, with 210+ markets in 48 countries around the world.

The addition of Cogent bolsters HostDime’s lineup of multiple diverse connections from leading bandwidth providers, carriers, and exchanges that run into their Mexico data center facility. The carriers in the demarc meet-me/PoP room can link straight to the equipment racks from the source, avoiding all other network switches; this provides added redundancy, lower latency in Mexico, and the flexibility to switch carriers within the facility.

Cogent has an extensive peering and inter-connectivity with all local major Mexico telecom providers to achieve this high-performance routing within Mexico to reach 90% of all end-users and enterprises at lightning speeds.

Guadalajara, the second-largest metropolitan area in Mexico, is leading the charge of interconnectivity throughout the country. HostDime’s edge data center in the city was constructed with the purpose of delivering reliable and scalable data center infrastructure services to Mexico at the lowest possible latency.

This isn’t the first time Cogent and HostDime have linked up. HostDime also provisioned a Cogent PoP in its Orlando data center and will deploy a similar set-up in their upcoming 100,000 square foot Orlando flagship data center coming in summer 2022.
