The London-based BSO team is rolling full steam ahead on its US expansion, announcing two more Points of Presence (PoP) in North American data centers today. The global Ethernet network, cloud and hosting provider has expanded into CoreSite’s One Wilshire (LA1) in Los Angeles and Equinix – Filigree Court in Ashburn, Virginia — two strategically located, well-connected gateways to other continents.
This investment provides BSO’s customers on both US coasts with a single point of entry to the company’s global network, while also completing its connectivity circle around the globe. It offers clients not only an east-to-west link, but also launching points to Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The move further reinforces BSO’s position as a market-leading, reliable partner for all industries in need of low latency, high-capacity US routes.
It also adds to the growing number of partnerships the company is building with well-respected US connectivity brands — CoreSite and Equinix are two prime examples. CoreSite’s One Wilshire, one of the world’s most interconnected data centers, is an industry-leading hub for transpacific connectivity into Asia-Pacific markets. BSO customers can use the site to connect to Tokyo, then beyond into its market-leading Asia-Pacific network across Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Sydney.
Likewise, the Equinix – Filigree Court location in Washington, DC, is a connectivity hub on the East Coast providing diverse routing across the US by avoiding the Chicago and NYC metro areas. Customers of this data center will now have access to BSO’s recently optimized fastest available trading routes between Chicago and key financial hubs in Moscow, Dubai and Mumbai.
“BSO’s decision to bring LA1 on-net offers CoreSite’s customers a key opportunity to upgrade their Asia network with market-leading, diverse connections, as BSO offers the lowest latency routes available from the West Coast to Tokyo and the rest of Asia,” says Michael Ourabah, CEO at BSO. “Our move into the Equinix Washington location provides the US finance community with a single point of access to BSO’s transatlantic low latency connectivity into Europe and the Middle East. Providing these links between establishing and emerging markets using local experience worldwide is a key mission for us.”
