NEW YORK -- Five Verizon data centers across the U.S. that provide enterprise-class colocation services have been converted to carrier-neutral facilities, providing clients with greater choice and flexibility.

Clients purchasing Verizon colocation services from data centers in Boston, Denver, Elmsford, New York, Manassas, Virginia and Seattle, will now have the option of selecting their own third-party network provider for carrier diversity and redundancy. Previously, these data centers featured dual-carrier network connectivity with Verizon serving as the primary carrier and an alternate, pre-selected carrier providing backup network services.

By adopting more permissive interconnection policies for its colocation data centers, Verizon colocation clients can realize multiple benefits.

  • Greater choice and flexibility in selecting a network service provider to connect the Verizon colocation data center to client offices and facilities, as well as universal Internet connectivity for partners and customers.
  • Enhanced carrier diversity and redundancy.
  • Ability to fully leverage existing relationships with network service providers.
  • Streamlined processes and low costs associated with carrier management.
  • Expanded business continuity options to maintain the accessibility and availability of mission-critical applications and data.

    Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ)

    A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
