New Jersey, October 11th, 2010. CENX Inc., operator of the world’s most connected Carrier Ethernet exchanges, with over 10 million reachable Ethernet Service Locations (ESL), today announced the opening of four new Carrier Ethernet Exchanges across three continents—North America, Europe and Asia.
“The market acceptance of the CENX has been tremendous, with 9 exchanges deployed in less than 12 months,” said Nan, Chen, president of CENX. “We believe that this acceptance has been driven by the pent-up demand for our groundbreaking Carrier Ethernet Exchange services that supports all attributes of Carrier Ethernet, including sophisticated service integration and monitoring as well as carrier-neutrality, which reflects our focus on serving (not competing with) our members.”
Although each CENX Exchange provides the same level of service, each Exchange matches specific local and regional demands. With the substantial size and maturity of the U.K. Ethernet market, London was the obvious first location for CENX’s first European Carrier Ethernet Exchange.
CENX’s new Exchange, based at the key Asian gateway communications point of Hong Kong, is the first of its kind in the region. The world’s largest regional deployment of Ethernet services now have a natural meeting location, boosting Ethernet business without compromising the key attributes required to support value added services.
CENX’s new New Jersey Carrier Ethernet exchange provides the geographic diversity (and convenience) required by metropolitan New York and international gateway carriers. Finally, CENX’s new Miami Carrier Ethernet Exchange serves as the gateway between North and South Americas, meeting the rapidly rising demands of CENX members serving the burgeoning Central and Latin American Ethernet services markets, as well as the growing regionally-based service providers
CENX makes it easy for both existing and emerging Ethernet service providers to capitalize on the opportunities for new revenue growth. These new installations are the latest step in CENX’s worldwide expansion program, which has already resulted in the connection to more than 10 million ESLs.
“The Carrier Ethernet services and transport market is growing very nicely, in good part due to industry acceptance of common definitions promulgated by the MEF, so we believe it is important that Carrier Ethernet exchanges support the same five attributes of Carrier Ethernet defined by the MEF,” stated Michael Howard, co-founder and principal analyst at Infonetics Research. “Carrier Ethernet is a global phenomenon for services, transport, and mobile backhaul, so these five multi-continental hubs are critical connection points for regional and global Ethernet market growth.”
CENX, Inc., operator of the world’s first Carrier Ethernet exchanges, delivers carrier-neutral, location-neutral, Carrier Ethernet exchange services to global telecom/internet service providers. CENX interconnects service providers’ Carrier Ethernet networks worldwide, providing access to more than ten million Ethernet Service Locations. CENX simplifies, expedites, integrates, monitors and enables vast revenue opportunities, dramatic cost-saving and Carrier Ethernet global ubiquity – a foundation for next generation telecommunications networks. Through its work in the MEF (www.MetroEthernetForum.org) and in the industry, the CENX management team has played a leading role in the definition of standards and the development of the Carrier Ethernet market over the last nine years.
