BSO integrates IX Reach core network to create a global network powerhouse
BSO has successfully integrated IX Reach into its award-winning low-latency global infrastructure, providing customers with exceptional performance, speed and scale, engineering talent, and the latest advancements in SDN networking & automated cloud.
Notable enhancements include additional connectivity into South Africa, Russia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney, new cloud location on-ramps, and proactive preparations for soon-to-be-announced providers joining the company's global cloud ecosystem.
The integration also delivers an even denser North America network as well as deeper metropolitan penetration in over 12 metro cities globally, providing a strong network proposition for both wholesale partners and enterprise customers.
Michael Ourabah, founder and CEO of BSO, said: "Since BSO acquired IX Reach, we have worked around the clock to unite our complementary offerings while strengthening our specialist services that confidently operate on their own. We have brought together the best people, the most robust technology and our joint knowledge of working in every corner of the globe. This combination equips our customers with a potent blend to propel them forward in their own growth ambitions."
The global integration accelerates BSO's 100G rollout plans, with new paths in Marseille, London, New York, Ashburn and Chicago and expansions underway across Europe in Madrid, Milan, Zurich and Frankfurt. BSO's network has also been bolstered by IX Reach's Microsoft Azure C3 interconnects, which offer direct access in USA, Canada, Amsterdam and most recently, the UK. This offers full diversity away from the Slough campus with connectivity in the heart of the Docklands at Telehouse North.
Stephen Wilcox, founder of IX Reach and head of product, said: "This network integration truly cements our extremely strong challenger status, by proving our commitment to offering the best network latency paths, extensive easy-to-deploy cloud connectivity, advanced SDN automation, and robust direct partnerships."
