Verizon is now offering its Carrier Ethernet services to its global wholesale customers via the new CENX Carrier Ethernet Exchange in New York City.
CENX delivers Carrier Ethernet exchange services to telecom/Internet service providers worldwide via its carrier neutral, co-location/data-center neutral exchanges.
At the CENX exchange, carriers configure their network interconnection to CENX as they choose. CENX then handles the translations and interoperability between providers such as Verizon and its carrier customers as services are turned up, streamlining the detailed engineering of such service setups.
"CENX Carrier Ethernet exchanges are the world’s first operational service-level interconnects addressing all of the logistic, technical, management, business and expertise challenges faced by our customers," said Nan Chen, CENX co-founder and CEO, in a statement. "CENX achieves this through several technological approaches that preserve our customers’ differentiation when cross-connecting over others’ networks."
