CoreSite Realty said Global Telecom & Technology (GTT) agreed to extend its backbone network into ten CoreSite data centers.

As a result of the network upgrade into the new data centers, GTT will peer on Any2, the nation's second largest peering exchange, operated by CoreSite.

GTT will also provide access to CoreSite's Open Internet Exchange, including connections to AMS-IX, DE-CIX, and NYIIX through CoreSite locations.

GTT provides networks across North America, Europe, and Asia using its own private, optical long-haul networks and highly scalable IP networks to provide customers worldwide with connectivity solutions through its Network as a Service proposition.

These solutions include Ethernet transport, nLayer IP Transit, cloud connectivity, collaborative networking, and global peering. GTT customers gain access to CoreSite's extensive mesh of interconnection for the networking and cloud communities and it provides CoreSite's customers access to GTT's increased network footprint.
