Cologix and Arelion Join Forces to Enhance Connectivity at the Digital Edge

Cologix and Arelion have once again improved North American connectivity through their growing partnership.

Cologix, North America’s leading network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data center company, and Arelion, the world’s number one ranked global IP backbone, announced today the expansion of their North American collaboration, with the addition of 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.

Arelion selected Cologix’s Columbus data center campus as it offers an ideal location for hybrid cloud IT deployments that require 100 percent uptime and network performance. It is also strategically located in proximity to more of the U.S. population than any other major city and has the highest metro concentration of Fortune 1000 companies.

“We continue to respond to customer demand by extending our network into key edge locations to help support surrounding businesses and area growth. Doing so with a strong partner such as Cologix, with whom we have a long-standing history, ensures we provide our customers with the best network access,” said Stephen Hartman, Head of North American Sales, Arelion.

Companies wanting to do business at the digital edge can now take advantage of Arelion’s number one ranked global backbone, AS1299, as well as the local availability of their high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, DDoS Mitigation, Ethernet and IPX services for operators, content providers and enterprises alike.
