Mammoth Networks Extends Reach with New Point of Presence in Dallas

Mammoth Networks (News - Alert) is adding to its network of more than 30 points of presence (POPs) across the U.S. with a new facility in Dallas. The space will be collocated in the Equinix (News - Alert) facility within the InfoMart building downtown and will tie in with Mammoth’s Denver to Phoenix network ring.

Having a Dallas presence is a strategic move for Mammoth, which specializes in aggregating wholesale data services. The location will provide a central presence in the Southwest region, offering a variety of big-bandwidth and Ethernet-based data services. Dallas is also known as a key interconnection and network hand-off point for carriers and aggregators, making Mammoth’s investment there significant.

Wyoming-based Mammoth has a history of partnering with data center heavyweights like Equinix as well as major fiber carriers. The company set up a POP in the Cologix data center in Minneapolis last October, expanding its north-central connectivity network. That month Mammoth also connected to Wave Broadband in Seattle, expanding service to its clients in the Pacific Northwest region. Earlier in the year, Mammoth partnered with data center and cloud services provider Phoenix NAP, setting up a POP within their facility. The company provides network access points (NAPs) as well as colocation and IaaS solutions.

Having expanded coverage in the Southwest region is a no-brainer since client demand there is significant, said Brian Worthen (News - Alert), CEO of Mammoth Networks. "While this is a break from our more traditional rural market focus, the Dallas POP allows us to enter new markets and interconnect with key carriers in the region."

MSP RealLinx (News - Alert) is already onboard as an anchor tenant in the Dallas POP. The company specializes in providing multi-site managed voice, IT broadband, security and hosting services, and has a longstanding relationship with Mammoth.
