(Gawkwire.com) Interxion and CENX have partnered to launch a pan-European Carrier Neutral Ethernet Exchange service. The service will be available in Interxion’s London data centre in June 2010 with expansions being planned for other locations including, amongst others, Amsterdam and Paris.
The CENX-Interxion partnership will help to accelerate the already rapid growth in demand for Carrier Ethernet services in Europe. Market analyst Infonetics Research expects that as a direct result of efficient and economical interconnects between service providers, the market for Ethernet Services can grow at 20% CAGR to a total of almost US$40 Billion in 2013. CENX’s proven business processes and methodologies enable service providers to gain access to the CENX marketplace within 30 days, which today includes over 5 million Ethernet end user locations provided globally by more than ten service providers including Verizon and Level 3. This partnership will facilitate rapid and easy access by carriers located at Interxion to the new CENX service and generate cost savings, as well as extending the potential reach of Carrier Ethernet networks across Europe for the benefit of their customers.  Interxion’s data centres in 11 countries provide direct connectivity to the highest carrier density in Europe of any data centre operator, including all the major Carrier Ethernet service providers.
“The Interxion and CENX partnership creates carrier-neutral integration points that meet critical market demand for ubiquitous network and service delivery of data, voice, and video over Carrier Ethernet,” said Stan Hubbard, Senior Analyst with Heavy Reading. “This move will allow service providers to establish interconnections quickly and effectively in key European markets, enabling them to focus on their primary business goal of serving their end-customers and accelerating revenue.”
“Through this agreement, we are delivering on our strategy of further enhancing our connectivity proposition and driving cost savings for customers in the rapidly growing Carrier Ethernet service market,” said Kevin Dean, Chief Marketing Officer Interxion. “By seeking out CENX as the leading neutral, best-of-breed operator of Carrier Ethernet exchanges, Interxion can continue to offer its carrier, digital media, financial services, content and cloud provider customers the best connectivity products, while we stay focused on operating and building out our best of breed data centre footprint. With its world-leading solution and deep understanding of Carrier Ethernet services, CENX is uniquely positioned to service Ethernet data-driven requirements, driving down customer costs and offering improved reach in the process.”
“Building on its seven years of working on the development of Carrier Ethernet, the CENX team has launched their services in November 2009 and has already made accessible over 5 Million Ethernet end user locations across the U.S., by connecting the networks of more than ten major carriers, including Verizon and Level 3. Our partnership with European market leader Interxion, with over 350 interconnected carriers throughout Europe, allows CENX to create the only European solution bringing both the ease of colocated physical connectivity together with the efficiency of CENX’s Carrier Ethernet Exchange solution,” said Nan Chen, CEO and co-founder of CENX. “Interxion has the optimum balance between carrier and content provider customers, ideal for the rapid migration towards the integration of data, voice and video delivered over a Carrier Ethernet infrastructure.”
