Edge data centre infrastructure provider HostDime has announced that Cogent Communications, has deployed a Point-of-Presence (PoP) in HostDime’s Tier III data centre in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The link has been constructed to enhanced global connectivity options to HostDime’s Mexico clients and expands Cogent’s on-net network presence in Mexico.

The addition of Cogent bolsters HostDime’s lineup of multiple diverse connections from several bandwidth providers, carriers, and exchanges that run into their Mexico data centre facility.

The carriers in the meet-me/PoP room can link straight to the equipment racks from the source, avoiding all other network switches; this provides added redundancy, lower latency in Mexico, and the flexibility to switch carriers within the facility.

Cogent has an extensive peering and inter-connectivity history with all local major Mexico telecom providers to achieve this high-performance routing within Mexico to reach 90% of all end-users and enterprises at lightning speeds.

Guadalajara, the second-largest metropolitan area in Mexico, is leading the charge of interconnectivity throughout the country.

HostDime’s edge data centre in Guadalajara was constructed with the purpose of delivering reliable and scalable data center infrastructure services to Mexico at the lowest possible latency.

Manny Vivar, HostDime’s chief executive officer and president of global operations, said: “We are proud and honoured to welcome Cogent on-net into our Guadalajara, Mexico data centre.

“Cogent’s superior global network architecture and high interconnectivity in Mexico allows us to offer our clients exceptional connectivity at an unbeatable price. We look forward to continuing to expand this strategic partnership with Cogent across our entire fleet of global data centres.”

This isn’t the first time Cogent and HostDime have linked up. HostDime also provisioned a Cogent PoP in their current Orlando data center and will deploy a similar set-up in their upcoming 100,000 square foot Orlando, Florida flagship data centre coming summer 2022.
