Increased carrier density provides reliable service, wide-ranging options for Flexential customers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – December 17, 2018 – Flexential, a leading provider of hybrid IT and wholesale data center solutions, today announced a major expansion to its FlexAnywhere network fabric with new point of presence (PoP) deployments and carrier capabilities. The expansion includes new PoPs at 56 Marietta in Atlanta and at 511 11th Ave. in Minneapolis alongside seven new carriers providing additional connectivity options for Flexential customers in data centers throughout the U.S.

Strong carrier density and robust connectivity options are increasingly critical to delivery services as businesses move into the age of artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT). Flexential will now add AT&T, Zayo, Unitas Global, Packet Fabric, Megaport, Crown Castle, and Cogent to its growing list of over 80 domestic and international carriers.

“As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, the importance of carrier-neutral connectivity options like those provided by Flexential will only continue to grow,” said Dave Schaeffer, Cogent Communications CEO. “We are proud to work with Flexential to offer carrier services to customers in Cincinnati; Denver; Las Vegas; Richardson, Texas; and several other locations, and we look forward to helping those businesses expand their reach.”

The new carrier options and PoP deployments will support both the FlexAnywhere network fabric and edge computing offerings by bringing carrier-neutral connectivity services anywhere within the Flexential fleet. This increased carrier density will allow Flexential to better serve the needs of customers wherever additional interconnection is needed.

“As always, our goal is to provide Flexential customers with as many choices as possible to suit their business needs,” said Mike Fuhrman, chief product officer at Flexential. “Companies need a diverse set of carrier solutions that meet both their requirements and budgets. We want to ensure that when customers choose Flexential and the FlexAnywhere platform, they have the confidence that we will deliver the consistent support and diverse options they need for sustainable, scalable success.”
