-- Amitié Becomes the Highest Capacity Transoceanic Communications Cable Ever Deployed, First to Connect Boston to Europe –

-- CoreSite’s Boston Purpose-Built Data Center Powers This Robust Connectivity Option with Reliable Colocation –

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CoreSite, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider and subsidiary of American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) (“American Tower”), today announced Aqua Comms, a leading provider of global subsea connectivity services, has activated its Amitié (AEC-3) transatlantic subsea cable system leveraging native colocation and connectivity services at the CoreSite Boston data center campus (BO1). AEC-3 is the first modern subsea cable system to directly connect Boston to Europe. CoreSite’s BO1 facility, which is strategically located in Boston’s central business district, serves as an integral part of the IT infrastructure that powers AEC-3 to deliver reliable, low-latency, diverse capacity and the latest technology to Aqua Comm customers.

AEC-3 is the third high-capacity system added to Aqua Comms’ transatlantic footprint and offers enhanced diversity in both the United States and Europe. CoreSite’s Boston location is a keycomponent in the trans-Atlantic system with landings in Lynn, Massachusetts and Widemouth Bay, England. The design of the system brings all users additional connectivity options in the United States and the United Kingdom. Built by Alcatel Submarine Network, the 6,783 km (4,215 miles) trans-Atlantic system has 16 fiber pairs and 400 Tbps current design capacity.

As one of the most interconnected buildings in New England, CoreSite’s BO1 data center provides Aqua Comms access to leading network, cloud and IT providers. Aqua Comm’s deployment in BO1 includes a secure colocation environment as well as diverse connectivity options through the robust CoreSite ecosystem. The CoreSite Boston facility offers Aqua Comms 100% SLA uptime, options to grow its data center footprint and the power capabilities needed for the effective operation of the trans-Atlantic system.

“CoreSite values our partnership with Aqua Comms and the critical role our IT infrastructure plays in helping their organization deliver global subsea connectivity services as well as improving transmission capacity in North America and Europe,” said Juan Font, President and CEO of CoreSite and SVP of U.S. Tower. “As demand for reliable, diverse and secure connectivity continues to rise, purpose-built data centers like CoreSite’s Boston facility will serve as the central digital platform where cloud and network providers along with enterprises meet to conduct business and provide optimal customer solutions.”

Now that AEC-3 is live, Boston has a direct connection all the way to London. AEC-3 also enables Aqua Comms to deliver improved reliability in terms of protected capacity on multiple diverse routes.
