HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- EdgeConneX®, specializing in hosting content at the edge of the network, has partnered with TelNet Worldwide (TelNet), a full service provider of cloud communications services essential to enterprises of all sizes, to develop Southeast Michigan's newest and most advanced Tier III data center in the city of Southfield. Poised for a November 2014 launch, the newest Edge Data Center® combines EdgeConneX innovation, including purpose-built design, advanced engineering and rapid deployment capabilities coupled with TelNet's greater Michigan go-to-market expertise and customer service focus.
EdgeConneX specializes in providing purpose-built, edge-of-network facilities that enable the fastest delivery of content to consumers.

Our Edge Data Centers are designed and built to adhere to the highest technical standards in the industry and boast a new and proprietary online data center infrastructure management system (DCIM) that provides real-time visibility into each center's operation. This DCIM monitoring tool will be customized for TelNet's use in providing service to its customers.

With 15 years of growth in the industry, TelNet continues to expand its enterprise and wholesale service offerings and will be providing colocation, managed services, virtualization and data storage at this location.
