About Co-location Washington DC company and network
CO-LOCATION.COM is a major player in the expanding market for co-location services, with over 120 facilities in 66 markets worldwide and over 7 million square feet of space.
CO-LOCATION.com uses the Level(3)™ global network for it's primary IP backbone. Level(3)™ has built a global communications network unlike any other. It is the most advanced communications platform in the world. It is the first network to be completely optimized for advanced IP (Internet Protocol) technology, and the first to be fully and continuously upgradeable - enabling Level(3)™ to continue to deploy new, superior technology as it is developed.
The network was designed to evolve as technology evolves, taking advantage of the fact that a new generation of fiber becomes available every 18-24 months. Additionally, optoelectronics - the equipment that controls the flow of information through a network much as valves control the flow of water through a pipe - are improving even faster. Doubling in price performance every 9-10 months, optoelectronics is the fastest improving technology in industrial history.
In 30 months, Level(3)™ built a 20,000-mile multi-conduit intercity network and 33 multi-conduit metropolitan networks in North America and Europe. Additionally, the company constructed a transatlantic cable system connecting North America and Europe, and has secured 5.6 million square feet of technical space in 74 data centers serving 57 North American markets and 12 European markets.
