Tier III Facility Opens Fall 2014 Combining Extensive Build Capability and National Footprint With Enterprise Expertise

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.

With over 14 Edge Data Centers, operational or under construction, EdgeConneX is the fastest growing data center company in the country. 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.

This data center will greatly complement TelNet's existing redundant, highly reliable network to further its network, cloud and managed service offerings. 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.

"EdgeConneX is locating data centers strategically throughout the US to reshape the way the Internet functions, and Detroit is an important location. They chose TelNet because of our strong reputation in the region, local expertise, and commitment to bringing the best-of-breed cloud, next-generation network, and managed services to the marketplace," says Pat O'Leary, CEO of TelNet, adding, "The partnership with EdgeConneX will provide a powerful combination and competitive advantage to businesses in Southeast Michigan."

"TelNet is a great partner in the build of our most recent Tier III Edge Data Center. Their focus on enterprise customers complements our wholesale focus to create a balanced ecosystem serving the needs of the entire marketplace. Our Detroit area location was selected for its rich fiber density, vast power and proximity to Michigan's technology hub," adds Clint Heiden, Chief Commercial Officer at EdgeConneX. "With Edge Data Center locations across the country, we plan to grow and expand our relationship, with effort toward building additional partnership opportunities in other geographic areas."
