ExteNet’s delivery of its expanded services into Evoque’s data centers is projected to be completed by the end of January. The agreement between the two firms marks a key deliverable in Evoque’s stated vision of significantly expanding the services offered to its clients, in its evolution as a trusted provider and partner, in addition to the continued expansion of ExteNet’s fiber services in the data center space. “Data center providers must increasingly offer their clients an expanded range of flexible connectivity services to enable a consistent global reach.

“We are pleased to welcome Evoque as our strategic partner,” said Kevin Errity, SVP of Enterprise Solutions at ExteNet Systems. “Enabling high-capacity fiber network with diverse routes across Evoque’s 14 data centers will deliver high-bandwidth connectivity for Evoque’s clients.
