CoreSite to Offer CENX Ethernet Exchange in its Data Centers

CoreSite Realty Corporation which operates eleven data centers across the U.S. including One Wilshire in Los Angeles, will offer the CENX Carrier Ethernet Exchange services. CENX will own and operate its Carrier Ethernet Exchange services, with CoreSite's network-dense data centers providing national access points. The agreement supports CENX expansion to new markets, including the Bay Area, Boston, Northern Virginia and Washington, DC as well as additional data centers in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York.

The carrier-neutral CoreSite data centers private data centers and suites, cage-to-cabinet colocation, and interconnection services, such as Any2, CoreSite's Internet exchange. The company's portfolio comprises more than two million square feet and access to over 200 network service providers.

CENX Carrier Ethernet Exchanges offer access to more than 15 million Ethernet Service Locations (ESLs), the most of any Carrier Ethernet Exchange provider (based on published data). CENX Exchange members benefit from extended network reach, route optimization and diversification, and cost savings. At full deployment, CENX Carrier Ethernet Exchange services are expected to be available to all of CoreSite's 600+ data center customers.
