Comcast Business establishes PoP in vXchnge data centers, enhances Ethernet reach

Comcast Business (NASDAQ: CMCSA) continues to expand its presence in carrier neutral data centers, announcing that it has established point-of-presence (PoP) in three major vXchnge data centers.

Through this agreement, vXchnge will now be able to promote Comcast Business Ethernet service while facilitating exchanges between its data center customers and other service providers that have interconnection needs in the markets they serve.

In order to accommodate the needs of their customer base and provide a deeper network presence, vXchnge and Comcast business created cross-connections in their Santa Clara, Calif., and Secaucus, N.J., facilities. The two companies said they have planned a third deployment in Philadelphia in the middle of this year.

vXchnge, which serves a range of businesses from small-scale start-ups to large corporations in technology, financial services and healthcare, among other industries, has worked with Comcast Business to deploy its fiber network directly into these locations, allowing customers access to Comcast's network and suite Ethernet services.

Similar to other fiber-rich service providers like traditional incumbents and competitive providers like Level 3, Comcast Business continues to take advantage of the data center interconnection market segment.

In addition to fiber connectivity, the service provider offers data center providers a suite of Ethernet options, including Ethernet Dedicated Internet, Ethernet Private Line, Ethernet Virtual Private Line and Ethernet Network Services that scales up to 10 Gbps.
