Cohere Communications Selects IO to Provide Data Center Connectivity for Advanced Managed Services

Phoenix, Ariz. – February 21, 2017 – IO, a leading global provider of Data Center Services, today announced Cohere Communications, a leading, full-service information technology and managed services provider, has selected the IO.New Jersey data center to provide connectivity services as part of its five-point, 10 gigabit ring of networked data centers. Cohere will leverage IO data center connectivity to address the high capacity, high throughput bandwidth needs of its advanced managed services client base.

“IO easily addressed our requirements for fiber optic data center connectivity and security with carrier-class redundancies and ‘white glove’ support that will help us have an always-on network,” said Steven Francesco, Chairman and CEO of Cohere Communications. “IO.New Jersey provides close proximity to the media and financial services centers in New York which is vital to our networked solutions. Working with IO also enables us to provide customers with connectivity that extends across the country – and internationally – so they can be on the same fully protected ring to access peering services.”

IO.New Jersey is a carrier-neutral data center that enables customers to connect securely to hundreds of networks in its Meet-Me-Rooms, where telecommunications companies can physically connect to one another and exchange data. IO.New Jersey maintains diverse network paths in and out of the data center to help ensure interconnections are available on a 24/7 basis with minimal risk of interruption.

With 830,000 square feet, IO.New Jersey is one of the largest colocation and cloud modular data center facilities on the U.S. east coast. IO’s modules are exceptionally energy efficient and provide power cost savings of between 20 to 30 percent as compared to traditional raised floor colocation. The data center employs multiple layers of physical security to protect the mission-critical infrastructure in the facility.

“As an advanced managed services provider, Cohere is an expert at addressing complex technologies and delivering maximum uptime, which makes them a great fit for our data center services,” said David Mettler, Vice President of Sales and the Market Director, IO. “They can leverage the redundancy and resiliency built into our state-of-the-art infrastructure to help them service their most demanding clientele.”
