Telecom operators already in possession of a telecom infrastructure for their own operations may find it beneficial to expand their business offerings to include colocation services. Such operators already have easy access to corporate customers using their services, and have experience in designing, building and managing networks, making them a solid choice as a colocation provider.
Commercial data centers of this type are organised as regular colocation data centers, with clear demarcation points and well-defined distribution and equipment areas. Standards such as ANSI/TIA-942 and ISO/IEC TS 22237 provide guidance on how these data centers should be structured.
Commercial data centers from telecom operators can offer a range of services such as:
- various locations including different countries and continents
- traditional hosting
- robust security
- speedy connectivity to global / WAN / metro networks
- virtual private networks
- fast connection to the internet
- access to edge data center networks
- SaaS (Software as a Service)
Commercial data centers use the same principles to provide connectivity services to their customers as multi-tenant colocation
