London, United Kingdom – 4th February 2016: LDeX Group has today announced that Cogent Communications is to become the latest connectivity provider to launch a point of presence (PoP) at its second carrier neutral datacentre facility, LDeX2, in Trafford Park, Greater Manchester.
As one of the world’s largest Internet Service Providers, Cogent delivers high quality Internet access, Ethernet transport, and colocation services to Enterprise and NetCentric customers. Cogent complements LDeX’s existing list of tier 1 carriers and ISPs which already have PoPs in LDeX2 offering customers access to connectivity providers over diverse fibre paths.
Commenting on the news, Rob Garbutt, LDeX Group CEO, said: “This point of presence will enable LDeX2 as a 3MVA datacentre facility to be connected to over 2125 on-net locations giving clients in the region a sizable scope for network reach while at the same time further increasing Cogent’s datacentre footprint in the United Kingdom. Attracting ISPs such as Cogent to the new site aligns with our strategic plans to be the best connected datacentre operator in the UK”.
He added: “This further enhances our relationship with Cogent which already provides top tier connectivity services to customers at LDeX1, our London based colocation facility.”
