Hudson Fiber Network (HFN) is expanding its global footprint with a partnership with Epsilon.
Following Epsilon’s acquisition of Metcom Network Services (MNS), HFN, a legacy MNS customer, confirmed its commitment to expand its service offerings across Epsilon’s strategic connections across Europe, Asia and the Middle East, stitched with core backhaul connectivity to New York. With growing global infrastructure requirements, HFN will colocate in interconnections hubs operated by Epsilon in London and Hong Kong.
In addition, HFN will use Epsilon’s local access services in Europe and Asia via its Enterprise Connect product line. The agreement includes a joint project to help HFN further the delivery of its exceptional network performance and quality of service across all markets. By partnering with Epsilon, HFN eliminates the need for distributed procurement teams to manage local service provider relationships and network operations, the company said.
“We have grown significantly and are very excited to leverage Epsilon’s colocation facilities and global network reach to further extend connectivity services to our customers worldwide. It will support our mission to deliver high-performance network services throughout key U.S. and global markets,” said Brett Diamond, CEO, HFN. “We look forward to expanding upon our partnership with additional Dedicated Internet Access and transport services in the future.”
Epsilon’s network is a carrier-grade, next-generation terabit optical global backbone, which incorporates a unique on-demand networking technology. It is deployed across 90 Points of Presence (PoPs) globally and connects over 600 network operators, communications and cloud service providers (CSPs).
“This partnership demonstrates Epsilon’s service capabilities to assist fast-growing connectivity service providers with global network reach across our widespread network,” added Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO, Epsilon. “We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with HFN as they continue to grow their service capabilities by providing them the simplest and most efficient way to serve their customers around the world, while expanding our services to other U.S. regional network providers.”
