Xtel Opens Data Center in NY City Market

Amid a rise in cybercrime and digital transformation, Xtel Communications, a telecommunications, cloud and network security solutions specialist, open its third data center in the sought-after New York market.

The facility, located in Newark, New Jersey, adds to the company’s growing data center portfolio. Xtel’s other facilities are located in Philadelphia at 401 N. Broad, the renowned international gateway, and Plano, Texas.

The addition of this new facility allows Xtel to expand its serviceable footprint of dedicated internet access (DIA) via fiber-optic connections. In addition, the data center provides robust DDoS attack mitigation options to enable more secure environments. This is critical as these types of cybercrimes continue to increase at an alarming rate. In recent years, DDoS attacks have risen by more than  151 percent.

Key features of Xtel’s New York market data center include:

  • Additional redundancy options for customers seeking more diversity in last mile fiber providers and fiber paths
  • Direct Connect options to SaaS (Software as a Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) providers, allowing the end-user customer to directly access these providers without having to traverse the Internet
  • Strategic enterprise-level colocation services

All Xtel data centers can maintain, operate, and monitor fiber optic backbone, voice platforms, and data centers. The data centers are part of a high availability `active-active’ network architecture, allowing for immediate service failover and load balancing between the data centers. Each data center is annually recertified for major compliance frameworks, including FedRAMP, FISMA, SSAE18, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and Privacy Shield – GDPR.
