Equinix and NexGen Networks announced that NexGen has deployed new network Points of Presence (PoPs) in its Tokyo (TY3) and Frankfurt (FR2) data centers.

As a longtime Equinix customer, NexGen Networks has leveraged Platform Equinix to scale its business to provide an ultra-low latency route between Europe and Asia to meet the needs of global enterprises.

Equinix said NexGen Networks has been working with the company for nearly a decade and has utilized Equinix’s global footprint of IBX data centers to establish a presence in many of the top metros for international markets including Chicago, New York, London, Philadelphia, and most recently in Tokyo and Frankfurt.

Equinix’s centrally located FR2 data center in Frankfurt is among the world’s most carrier-dense, thanks in part to a partnership with DE-CIX Frankfurt, the largest internet exchange point in the world.

NexGen’s expansion to FR2 represents another substantial step to ensuring that its customers have access to the most critical infrastructure in the key financial and commercial centers of the world. Additionally, this presence provides NexGen and its clients access to direct and settlement-free IP interconnection infrastructure in Germany.

At Equinix’s TY3 data center, NexGen will be able to deliver local or regional 10Gb wavelength or traditional Ethernet services, as well as offering connections from TY3 over the RJCN/TEA and PC1 routes, which are particularly beneficial for financial institutions that require low latency options to equities and futures markets in Europe and US.

Additionally, NexGen clients will be able to subscribe to colocation, interconnection and support services at the facility, which is a major peering and Internet exchange point for the Asia-Pacific region with connections to the Japan’s two largest financial exchanges—the Tokyo Futures Exchange (TFX) and the Tokyo Commodities Exchange.
