EdgeConneX revealed a new and somewhat unique partnership out in southern California. They have teamed up with the regional fiber operator Electric Lightwave to create an 'Edge Landing Station' down in San Diego.
Electric Lightwave operates a submarine cable that lands in several spots along the California coast. They have chosen to terminate it directly into EdgeConnex's edge data center, consolidating their network access in San Diego. That puts content placed at the edge in a position of also being directly connected to the other cable landing stations up and down the coast and therefore to points across the Pacific as well.
Electric Lightwave acquired the cable in the OpticAccess deal last year, and integrated it into their network footprint to add a truly diverse route to their portfolio.
