CoreSite announced that GTT-Global Telecom Technology and CenturyLink have agreed to extend their backbone networks into 10 CoreSite data centers.

In addition to the networks upgrades to the new data centers, GTT will partner with Any 2, the nation’s largest peering exchange operated by CoreSite.

GTT will also be responsible for providing access to CoreSite’s Open Internet Exchange including connections to AMS-IX, DE-CIX, and NYIIX through CoreSite locations.
