PacketExchange partners with CRG West

PacketExchange, a wide-area Internet exchange services, announced its partnership with CRG West, managers of carrier-neutral data centers in North America. The company states that by partnering with CRG West, it will significantly increase its addressable peering community in North America, while also adding CRG West's data centers to its wide-area peering network portfolio.

The company declared that customers, not already resident in CRG West facilities, will now benefit from Any2 Remoteª -- a new service available through their partnership with CRG West.

It further states that with Any2 Remote, their customers can easily access, through a VLAN connection from their existing PacketExchange PoP connection, any CRG West ANY2 peering exchange in North America.

The company claims that the partnership introduces, Any2 Localª, a new service that enables CRG West's Any2 exchange peering community to easily connect with their wide-area Internet exchange. Further, Any2 Local will enable CRG West's exchange peering community access to their rich suite of services offered through the CRG West network fabric.

"Teaming up with CRG West not only enables us to increase our international peering capabilities, but it allows our customers to benefit from a richer set of services and greater access to a larger addressable peering community," said Jason Velody, CTO of PacketExchange.

"This partnership is testament to PacketExchange's ongoing pursuit to work with premier partners, like CRG West, that enable the company to offer its customers the greatest number of peering opportunities available."

"This partnership contributes to both companies' desire to make a more powerful, more efficient and overall better performing global Internet," said John Savageau, Managing Director of CRG West.

"We are pleased this partnership has come into fruition. We look forward to continue to work with PacketExchange to offer our customers the highest level of service and value-add solutions through the Any2 fabric."
