The business services arm of Canadian operator Rogers Communications has deployed a Point-of-Presence (PoP) within Cologix’s latest data center at 905 King Street West in downtown Toronto to serve businesses in the city with global connectivity.
Rogers Business Solutions provides Canadian enterprises and partners with network connectivity using its fiber, cable and wireless assets to support a range of voice, data and networking services on a 100-percent digital fiber optic backbone, with strategic interconnect points to the United States and overseas for cross-border and international coverage.
“We have invested to interconnect this important location to our advanced access, metro and long-haul networks to meet customers intensified needs for data services in downtown Toronto,” said Andy Striegler, vice president of carrier services at Rogers Business Solutions. “Through this new deployment, Cologix customers have the opportunity to connect with advanced and deeply connected high-capacity access locally and abroad.”
Cologix, a network-neutral interconnection and colocation company, provides scalable interconnection services and colocation services in densely connected, strategically located data centers across hundreds of carriers.
“Cologix is pleased that Rogers Business Solutions has chosen Cologix’s 905 King Street as their PoP to provide their leading fiber-based network connectivity solutions to downtown Toronto enterprise and carriers,” said Sean Maskell, president at Cologix Canada. “The 905 King Street facility will offer seamless, neutral connectivity back to the dense set of carriers in 151 Front Street which is highly valuable to our colocation customers. “
He added, “At the same time, we believe network providers who also have a physical PoP at 905 King Street will be viewed favorably by our customers looking to buy network services. Roger’s commitment to serve customers directly within 905 King Street from Day One puts them in a strong position to communicate their value proposition.”
