Transtelco expands U.S. Ethernet reach via CENX

Transtelco, a U.S./Mexico border-based service provider, is augmenting its Ethernet network reach by establishing a connection with carrier Ethernet exchange provider CENX.

By partnering with CENX, Transtelco can--through Ethernet interconnection--expand service for two customer segments: service providers and enterprises. For Transtelco's enterprise customers, the CENX relationship will enable it to provide its larger multi-location customers with necessary connections outside of its network territory. Traditionally, service providers had to seek out and establish a specific interconnection agreement with one service provider. CENX's exchange simplifies that process by allowing the service provider to pick and choose from a host of possible interconnection partners from one common location.

In addition to enhancing the reach of its Ethernet network services for its enterprise customers, connecting with CENX will enhance Transtelco's ability to sell wholesale network capacity to U.S.-based service providers looking for an entry into Mexico's telecom market and Mexican operators looking to connect into the U.S and other international markets.

"Connecting with CENX enables U.S.-based service providers to quickly and efficiently reach end user locations connected to our Mexican and U.S. networks," said Edgar Mosti, Vice President of Wholesale, Transtelco in a release. "This is also an extremely effective means to better serve our Mexican-based end-user customers at their locations throughout the U.S. and beyond."

However, Transtelco is not alone in providing interconnection points into Latin America. Other service providers such as NTT America and XO have also been expanding their Latin American network interconnection reach.
