- Point of presence offers both company’s customers expanded capabilities and reach

London, United Kingdom – 10th December 2015: LDeX Group has today announced that Zayo will be the latest connectivity provider to launch a point of presence (PoP) at its second carrier neutral data centre facility, LDeX2, in Trafford Park, Manchester.

As a global provider of communications infrastructure, Zayo delivers high quality dark fibre, wavelengths, Ethernet and IP services to customers in the enterprise and wholesale sectors. Zayo complements LDeX’s existing list of Tier 1 carriers and ISPs, which are already on-net in the facility, offering customers that require high capacity bandwidth access to key connectivity locations via diverse dark fibre routes.

Rob Garbutt, LDeX Group’s CEO, said: “This point of presence will enable LDeX2 as a carrier neutral data centre and allow its customers to connect to approximately 19,000 on-net locations across Zayo’s global network. Attracting infrastructure providers such as Zayo to the facility aligns with our strategic plans to be the best-connected data centre operator in the UK.

“Zayo is already a provider of connectivity services for customers at our first London-based colocation facility so this is a logical extension of our relationship.”

“By connecting to LDeX2, Zayo is demonstrating its commitment to working with existing customers and partners to extend our network and bring more data centres and buildings on-net,” Alastair Kane, Managing Director of the UK and Ireland said.. “It is a great opportunity to offer both company’s customers extended capabilities and services.”
