CENX lights up Washington, D.C. Ethernet exchange

CENX continues to expand its domestic Ethernet exchange presence with a new Carrier Ethernet exchange point at CoreSite's (NYSE: COR) data center on 1275 K Street.

Driven by ongoing customer demand, CENX said the new Ethernet exchange will be ready for business in the second quarter. This marks the tenth operational Carrier Ethernet exchange that CENX operates in North America, Europe and Asia.

Interestingly, the new exchange was launched with Verizon Communications as a customer. Verizon, which launched its own Ethernet exchange business through a partnership it established with CENX early last year, expanded its Ethernet exchange reach into both Los Angeles and Washington D.C.

CENX's relationship with CoreSite is not just relegated to the D.C. market, however. Through an arrangement CENX made with CoreSite in January, CENX will be able to expand its Ethernet exchange presence in 11 data centers across eight markets, including the Bay Area, Boston, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. in addition to data centers in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York.
