PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cable ONE Business announced today the expansion of its nationwide network with the launch of a new Point of Presence (POP) in the Equinix Data Center, located inside the Westin Building Exchange in Seattle, Wash. This is Cable ONE’s first POP in the state.
“Cable ONE Business is excited to provide our carrier partners with a connection point in the Westin Building Exchange,” said Chris Boone, Vice President of Business Services for Cable ONE. “Adding a connection point in the Seattle hub enables us to decrease latency, reduce hop counts and increase reliability for our partners and their customers in the Pacific Northwest.”
Seattle is home to a well-established tech market that’s fostering growth with large companies and new start-ups alike. The Westin Building Exchange is ideally situated in downtown Seattle, providing premium connectivity options to one of North America’s key metropolitan areas. The city features a dense concentration of network, cloud and IT service providers, and is one of the largest network traffic routes in the country. Offering more than 60,000 square feet of colocation space, the Westin Building Exchange supplies a full range of premium colocation, interconnection and support services to a wide range of secure digital ecosystems.
The new POP will allow Westin Building Exchange tenants the opportunity to exchange IP traffic with Cable ONE’s nationwide network. It also provides access to Cable ONE’s extensive IP network through 10GE (10 Gigabit Ethernet) and GigE (1 Gigabit Ethernet) ports, and as a result, both new and existing customers will be able to experience increased throughput, reduced latency and improved reliability.
“The addition of the Seattle POP to our network adds a critical metropolitan connection point in the previously underserved Western U.S.,” Boone said.
Cable ONE Business now has POPs in eight major metropolitan cities, including Seattle, Boise, Phoenix, Kansas City, Dallas, Corpus Christi, Chicago and Atlanta.
