The MDC team has a long history of bringing innovative solutions to their customers, and we look forward to having them continue their work as a part of the DartPoints team.”

“We are excited to join the DartPoints team to expand services to our existing customers, as well as additional customer segments which need improved network performance,” comments Rob Kopp, co-founder and president of Metro Data Centers. “Our team is fully committed to integrate our solutions with the expanding DartPoints’ portfolio of interconnection points and providing communities in Central Ohio with innovative and best-in-class solutions.”
