Connect Your Way

Multiple network providers are available at each DFT data center to keep you connected to your customers and business partners while supporting your applications and critical IT infrastructure.

A carrier-neutral, network-agnostic data center provider, DFT offers you network connectivity through multiple network carriers, including dark fiber providers and lit carriers. We have relationships with 40 network carriers, two globally leading Internet Exchanges (IXPs) and multiple cloud service providers. If your network carrier of choice is not already onsite, we can invite them to establish their presence in a DFT data center on your behalf.

Each DFT data center features a multi-lateral underground conduit system, owned and operated by DFT. The fiber-optic cables enter the data center via multiple underground Points of Entry (POEs) for added security and diversity—leading to a centralized Meet-Me-Room (MMR) and customer computer rooms.

DFT offers a range of options to meet your connectivity requirements, whether you wish to connect to a network carrier of your choice, peer your traffic on an Internet Exchange or take advantage of dark fiber in one of our campus environments.

Whether you’re looking to directly connect with a network carrier of your choice or connect to an IXP within a data center or across a campus, DFT’s diverse dark fiber connectivity offers you the flexibility and scalability you need. Dark fiber delivers on the promise of high-performance, scalability, network reliability, redundancy and low latency.

No matter what your network strategy and requirements may be, DFT can enable you to achieve your goals. Our data centers are designed to facilitate easy installation and feature redundant options for you and your carriers via our various network service offerings. This ensures your business is always connected.
