New PoPs in Los Angeles and Virginia increase East-to-West diverse routes and connect US with Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

BSO, the global Ethernet network, enterprise cloud and hosting provider, announces two more Points of Presence (PoP) in North American data centres in Los Angeles and Virginia. This investment provides BSO customers on both coasts with a single point of entry to the provider’s global network and reinforces BSO’s position as a market-leading, reliable partner for all in need of low-latency, high-capacity US connectivity.

BSO has expanded into CoreSite’s One Wilshire (LA1) in Los Angeles and Equinix – Filigree Court in Ashburn, Virginia — two strategically located, well-connected gateways to other continents. These data centres complete BSO’s connectivity circle around the globe, offering customers not only a link between both US coasts, but also launching points to Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

One Wilshire is an industry-leading hub for transpacific connectivity into Asia-Pacific markets, which BSO links directly into Tokyo, then beyond into the company’s market-leading Asia-Pacific network across Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Sydney. With more than 200 networks, access to leading cloud on-ramps such as AWS and Microsoft and close to 60 cloud and IT providers, as well as many media and entertainment firms, social networking sites, and gaming companies present in the facility, One Wilshire is one of the world’s most interconnected data centres.

Likewise, the Equinix – Filigree Court location in Washington, DC, is a connectivity hub on the East Coast providing diverse routing across the US by avoiding the Chicago and NYC metro areas. Customers of this data centre will now have access to BSO’s recently optimised fastest available trading routes between Chicago and key financial hubs in Moscow, Dubai and Mumbai.

“BSO’s decision to bring LA1 on-net offers CoreSite’s customers a key opportunity to upgrade their Asia network with market-leading, diverse connections, as BSO offers the lowest latency routes available from the West Coast to Tokyo and the rest of Asia,” says Michael Ourabah, CEO at BSO. “Our move into the Equinix Washington location provides the US finance community with a single point of access to BSO’s transatlantic low-latency connectivity into Europe and the Middle East. Providing these links between establishing and emerging markets using local experience worldwide is a key mission for us.”

“It’s a perfect partnership for one of the world’s most interconnected data centres to work alongside a market-leading global connectivity provider,” said Steve Smith, senior vice president of sales and marketing at CoreSite. “We’re pleased to further expand our industry-leading connectivity options from the West Coast to Asia-Pacific markets for our customers, and we are confident that BSO’s customers will benefit greatly from its presence in this world-class facility.”

This move adds to the growing number of partnerships BSO is building with well-respected US connectivity brands. Over the past few months, the company has announced a series of headlines regarding its aggressive expansion into the US, including a New York City metro network with connections through 165 Halsey, access to a diverse route to Aurora DC3 in Chicago and a ‘Gateway to Mexico’ via a route from Chicago’s E. Cermak to McAllen, giving BSO customers superior access to the emerging markets in Latin America.
