DENVER – (April 12, 2022) – Cologix, North America’s leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data center company, announced today it is continuing to grow its collaboration with Arelion, the world’s number one ranked global IP backbone, with a new point-of-presence (PoP) at Cologix’s COL3 Scalelogix hyperscale edge data center in Columbus, OH. The addition makes eight Arelion PoPs in seven markets with Cologix, with metro campus access to 32 Cologix facilities.
“We are thrilled to have this long-standing relationship with Arelion as they continue to expand their network services in North America,” said Cologix President and Chief Revenue Officer Laura Ortman. “We are continuously building our carrier-neutral ecosystem to give our customers the best network access and connections to do business at the digital edge. In the past year, Arelion has added two markets with Cologix, in Vancouver and now Columbus. Our customers in Columbus now have access to Arelion’s low-latency fiber backbone and connectivity offerings.”
