Telx is expanding its interconnection facilities at two major carrier hotels, 2323 Bryan Street (Univision Center) in Dallas and 60 Hudson Street in New York City, the company said Wednesday. Telx said its space in Dallas would nearly double to 11,000 square feet, while it is adding 10,000 square feet of space on the 11th floor at 60 Hudson Street. The expansion gives Telx 60,000 square feet of interconnection space at 60 Hudson, one of New York's leading carrier hotels and the home base for Telx.
"We are seeing a tremendous amount of growth and demand for interconnection facility space, both from enterprise businesses and service providers," said Eric Shepcaro, CEO and Chairman of Telx. "The explosive growth of Ethernet and IP services is driving huge demand for physical connections between networks."
Telx held its annual customer Customer Business Exchange (cbx) yesterday, with a record 1,000 attendees and more than 500 companies represented in the networking event at Cipriani Wall Street in Manhattan.
Telx is a privately held company headquartered in New York City, which provides network interconnections in multi-tenant carrier hotel facilities around the U.S. Often described as a "marketplace" for network services, Telx actively promotes business opportunities between its carrier and enterprise customers.
In November Telx was bought by private equity firm GI Partners, and in March it acquired the meet-me-room at 111 Eighth Avenue in New York. With its deal to manage meet-me-rooms in Digital Realty Trust buildings, Telx now has operations in Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Phoenix, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Weehawken.
