DartPoints, LOGIX Fiber Networks collaborate in Texas

Aug. 18, 2020
To enhance regional interconnection in Texas, a new agreement with LOGIX interconnects DartPoints facilities to enable single-hop access to 150+ regional, national and international data centers and peering hubs.

DartPoints, a developer, owner and operator of carrier-neutral edge interconnection colocation data centers, has announced its collaboration with LOGIX Fiber Networks, a provider of highly secure fiber-based data, voice and data center services across Texas.

The collaboration leverages LOGIX’s network to interconnect DartPoints’ facilities throughout Texas, enhancing regional backbone connectivity between each point and enabling single-hop reach to over 150 regional, national and international data centers and global internet peering hubs.

Through the collaboration initiative, DartPoints and its customers gain access to LOGIX’s extensive built-for-business fiber network. With this network’s enhanced Layer 2 connectivity over thousands of miles and reach to thousands of on-net and near-net buildings and locations, the collaboration enables greater access to edge interconnection points and end users throughout Texas.

This symbiotic relationship fortifies DartPoints’ edge interconnection strategy by enabling its interconnection and colocation data centers at the regional Texas edge to access more fiber and network providers, driving interconnections with reach to the greatest number of end users.

Other key benefits of the collaboration for DartPoints include: enhancing these points’ aggregation capabilities to drive more interconnections between operators and content, application and cloud providers and ultimately improve overall network performance; and ensuring access to the greatest number of end users from a single location in an open and neutral facility, supporting the demand required by content, application and cloud providers to deploy edge nodes.

“LOGIX brings a crucial element to DartPoints’ existing regional footprint in Texas, allowing us to offer our edge points, and the providers that rely on them, expanded connectivity and geographic reach — a central facet of the fully optimized digital ecosystems we provide,” commented Hugh Carspecken, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer for DartPoints.

Carspecken added, “We’re thrilled to maximize our relationship, as it underscores our dedication and ability to meet the evolving needs of rural, underserved and developing markets. We’re excited to see how networks and end users in the region grow and thrive as a result.”

“DartPoints’ vision for improved access to content and applications aligns well with LOGIX’s goal to leverage our high-quality fiber network to provide connectivity services to a growing number of end users throughout Texas,” concluded Scott Brueggeman, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer for LOGIX.

Brueggeman went on, “As the largest independent fiber network operator in Texas, our extensive footprint offers customers exceptional access to connectivity solutions and can reach the greatest number of end users through a single connection. Together, we can improve the digital experience for the greatest number of businesses, education and research facilities, global enterprises and end users.”
