Strategic Texas PoP is the Latest Addition to BSO’s Aggressive US Expansion Plan
LONDON – August 24, 2016 – BSO, the global Ethernet network, cloud and hosting provider, has established a point of presence (PoP) in McAllen Data Center, the largest colocation provider in South Texas. The PoP in McAllen will further enhance BSO’s North to South US connectivity and network reach across the Americas with its single point of entry to the growing Mexican and South American markets. McAllen Data Center’s customers will also benefit with access to global markets East and West of the US in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific on BSO’s extensive network.
The PoP is the latest in BSO’s aggressive expansion into the US, with announcements in recent weeks that have included the establishment of a New York City Metro network with a diverse route to Aurora DC3 in Chicago and the introduction of three key premium ultra low-latency trading routes between Chicago and major global financial markets.
BSO’s North to South connectivity from Chicago’s E. Cermak to Mexico via McAllen will provide further value to BSO’s oil and gas customers that operate in the region, many of which already take advantage of BSO’s high-bandwidth, low-latency connectivity to key American, Mexican and Asian markets. A market-leading provider to the oil and gas industry, BSO ensures critical data is managed and transmitted securely and reliably for a growing customer base that includes a large oil and gas organization with offices in Mexico, Brazil and Texas.
