IDC Global Networks Expands Into telx's Chicago Facility

350 East Cermak Road in Chicago Hosts an Array of Global Network Operators

NEW YORK, NY and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - November 29, 2007) - telx, the premier operator of Meet Me Room and Core Interconnection colocation Facilities in the United States, announces IDC Global Networks, one of Chicago's leading colocation and private metro networking service providers, has taken space in telx's facility at 350 East Cermak Road in Chicago.

IDC Global has recognized that telx's Meet Me Room Facility is a strategic partnership enabling IDC Global and its colocation customers' access to an expanded array of best of breed global network service providers and financial market data sources.

"IDC Global is an ideal solution provider for the telx Meet Me Room facilities," stated Tesh Durvasula, Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer for telx. "IDC Global, along with its own colocation facilities, also provides low latency, high bandwidth Wide Area Networking solutions to enterprises and telecom carriers. Not only can IDC's colocation customers use IDC's network to gain access to global network operators in our Meet Me Room but our customers can now cross connect to IDC Global's metro network and benefit from their carrier neutral, wide area networking solutions and access to global financial market data."

As Global Enterprise Networks become more sophisticated and their network requirements begin to mimic traditional global telecom carriers', their networking equipment and the providers they procure from will need to be centralized, which is why global carriers choose to colocate with Meet Me Room and Core Interconnection Facility providers like telx.

"The Meet Me Room model provides a cost effective approach to companies who need easy access to reliable, redundant, and best of breed solution providers in any market where they have a presence," commented Shelly Greco from IDC Global. "Our decision to build into telx allows us access to an additional set of customers who are focused on purchasing global network and colocation services and increases the network choices and reach for our current customers."

Most interesting is the choice a colocation and network solution provider, such as IDC Global, has made in seeking out a Meet Me Room and Core Interconnection Facility such as telx. The telx model provides customers, either within Data Centers or large colocation space, the ability to connect to the most number of global networks with the smallest amount of presence. The focus at telx is on Core Interconnection services compared to Data Center and large colocation Facilities whose focus is on the space and power. The two business models from telx and IDC Global, Data Centers and Core Interconnection Facilities compliment one another and are solutions that should be considered together rather than separately or competitively since they meet different requirements of Global Network Operators.
