New York, November 2nd, 2010. CENX, Inc., operator of the world’s most connected Carrier Ethernet Exchange, today announced that it has achieved another industry milestone: Exceeding 15 million ESL (Ethernet Service Locations) served via its Carrier Ethernet Exchanges around the world. The availability of each new ESL creates another opportunity for CENX members to generate new revenues rapidly without incurring delay, integration or capital costs.
“We are seeing a sea change in the industry; carriers are rapidly moving away from incurring the expense and resources pursuing direct Ethernet connections. Our growing family of members and geographic expansion are becoming the obvious choice for executing interconnection,” said Nan Chen, President of CENX. “There is no longer any reason for providers to labor through frustrating one-by-one service connectivity when CENX has made interconnection so easy by managing both the technical and process integration while providing standards–based, off-net monitoring unavailable from any provider. Collectively, these are the compelling reasons that have attracted such a large number of members to CENX, thus enabling more than 15 million ESLs reachable. Our rapid rise in ESLs validates that the network effect has kicked in for CENX and our members are all the beneficiaries”
This important milestone was achieved just 4 months after announcing attainment of 10 million ESLs and less than a year since the opening of CENX’s first exchanges, reinforcing CENX’s position as the “most connected Carrier Ethernet exchange.”
“The CENX team pioneered the concept of the Ethernet services exchange and clearly has been hard at work to accelerate the development of the market and make it more efficient for service providers to extend the benefits of Ethernet to more customer locations,” said Stan Hubbard, senior analyst at Heavy Reading. “The CENX Market Web portal promises to be a powerful tool in giving exchange members access to serviceable physical addresses in many markets on several continents as well as service profile information like class of service and bandwidth options.”
