Colt Data Centres has laid down a PoP at LDeX Group’s LDeX2 data centre in Manchester.

The Trafford Park hub will offer fibre connections to over 23,000 LDeX’s buildings and Colt’s 29 carrier neutral data centres worldwide.

LDeX said the venture will boost the list of tier 1 on-net carriers available at LDeX2 and help expand the firm’s data centre global footprint.

The company also said it has aligned a strategy to be one of the best connected data centre operators in the UK.

LDeX Group’s CEO Rob Garbutt said: "Attracting carriers such as Colt to the new site aligns with our strategic plans to be one of the best connected data centre operators in the UK."

Zhongmin Guo, VP of Strategy and Business Development, Network Services at Colt, said: "Colt provides direct access to more than 540 Colt and third party data centres globally, providing enterprises of all sizes with the ability to choose from a vast network of data centres to best support their specific business requirements."

Colt operates 22 carrier-neutral data centres in Europe and manages a further seven in the Asia-Pacific region.
