DXN ships global telco cross-connection modules

By

Modular data centre colocation services operator Data Exchange Network has shipped its global cross-connection modules to its colocation data centre in Sydney.

Billed as unique and globally innovative, Data Exchange (DXN) says the telco modules, known as "cross connect rooms", will give customers the ability to link to data communications carriers, Cloud service providers and between the colocation centres in Sydney and Melbourne.

DXN also says the managed communications services available within the data centres will enable customers to dial-up bandwidth between Sydney and Melbourne and into the points-of-presence of all the major cloud service providers and global telecommunications companies.

The "cross connect modules" are designed and manufactured at its Perth factory, and pre-fabrication enables pre-provisioning of fibre to every rack from day-one, with soft-provisioning allowing customers to have instant access to the Internet and any cloud service in Australia from the minute they move in.

“Communication services are the arteries that feed the heart of any data centre. DXN intends to be the leader in the provision of clever connectivity solutions within its data centres and the most advanced provider of communications-driven data centre services, and cross-connectivity in Australia,” said Peter Christie, chief executive and co-founder of DXN.

“Data Exchange is striving to simplify the on-boarding challenge by making it fast and simple for a customer to take up space in a rack and connect to any cloud or carrier they choose. We call it a cloud-ready data centre and it will revolutionise the way customers consume rack space.”

Christie says DXN’s modular approach to data centres means the build and setup of the data centres is much quicker to construct. Traditional data centres usually take around 2½ years to bring online, whereas modular ones can be up and running in months.

He says DXN aims to deploy DCs quickly and offer customers the “fastest provisioning and best user experience of any colocation data centre operator in Australia”.

In addition to its Sydney and Melbourne data centres, DXN says it will develop a pipeline of data centres in Australia and Asia throughout 2019/20.
