Global IP backbone provider Arelion in April announced its continued collaboration Cologix, among North America’s top network-neutral interconnection and hyperscale edge data center companies, with the opening of a new point-of-presence (PoP) site at Cologix’s COL3 Scalelogix hyperscale edge data center in Columbus, Ohio.

Arelion said it selected Cologix’s Columbus data center campus because it offers an ideal location for hybrid cloud IT deployments that require 100 percent uptime and network performance.

The provider notes the facility is strategically located in proximity to more of the U.S. population than any other major city, with 47 percent of the population within a 10-hour drive. Columbus, Ohio also ranks as the highest metro concentration of Fortune 1000 companies.

The Cologix Columbus data center campus is the most densely connected interconnection site in the region with dark fiber network access to each of Ohio’s 88 counties and with direct connectivity to 50+ cloud and network service providers, including Amazon Web Services Direct Connect and Google Cloud Interconnect.

“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. “The addition of the Columbus, OH PoP helps us continue to support the Midwestern U.S. by providing high-quality local connectivity to the global ecosystem of content, collaboration, applications and cloud services we support with our AS1299 Internet backbone.

The new addition makes for 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. Our customers in Columbus now have access to Arelion’s low-latency fiber backbone and connectivity offerings.”
