CENX opens up four new domestic, international Ethernet exchanges

CENX's early move into the still nascent Ethernet exchange market may be facing challenges from new entrants like Neutral Tandem (Nasdaq: TNDM) , but that's not stopping the service provider from expanding its presence either.

Having established 10 million reachable Ethernet Service Locations (ESL), CENX is opening four new Carrier Ethernet exchanges in three continents: North America (Miami and New Jersey), Europe (London) and Asia (Hong Kong).

On the international front, CENX's European exchange is based in London, an area that's seen continued Ethernet growth, while initial Asian expansion will be based in Hong Kong.

In the U.S. market, CENX has opened an Ethernet exchange in New Jersey to target geographic diversity needs required by nearby New York City and international gateway carriers that need a point of entry into the U.S. By establishing a carrier Ethernet exchange in Miami, CENX says it will be able to provide a gateway not only for carriers that are looking to connect into Latin America, but also Latin America-based providers looking to expand their Ethernet reach.
