The CHA hosts private suite during 2015 Pacific Telecommunications Council Conference

New York, NY – January 15, 2015 - The Carrier Hotel Alliance (CHA) today announced the expansion of its membership to include Infomart Data Centers, a national owner/operator of network-rich data centers including the Southwest’s largest carrier-neutral interconnection facility. Infomart Data Centers will debut its new participation in the CHA suite during the 2015 Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC’15), January 18-21 in Honolulu, HI.

The Carrier Hotel Alliance (CHA) is a cooperative effort of key carrier hotel and Meet-Me Room owners hosting some of the largest network interconnection points in North America. The CHA has been instrumental in providing assistance to PTC attendees in the development of their global facilities strategy and overall network deployment. Companies requiring access to the major US networks, CDNs and cloud service providers can reach a large audience in a few short meetings during PTC’15. The CHA venue provides exceptional business development and relationship-building opportunities by facilitating one-on-one meetings between decision-makers and network operators. Upon request, during this year’s PTC’15 conference, the CHA will arrange private meetings with representatives from each of the major carrier hotels.

"The Dallas Infomart, one of the most networked buildings in the world, along with our other carrier-neutral data centers in San Jose, Ashburn and Hillsboro, Oregon, offer an ideal ecosystem for next generation networks and services,” said Andrew Gold, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development & Chief Counsel at Infomart Data Centers. "Joining the CHA at PTC’15 offers us the opportunity to meet with carriers, submarine cable consortia and service providers in an environment that promotes collaboration and partnership.”

"The massive demand for new bandwidth makes time to market even more critical for carriers and network service operators,” commented Michael Boyle, Strategic Planning Director with the Westin Building Exchange in Seattle, another CHA member. "Meeting with the CHA at PTC offers an ideal opportunity for PTC’15 attendees desiring to quickly deploy new networks or services to meet directly with major facilities in the US."

"We are pleased to add Infomart Data Centers to the Carrier Hotel Alliance," said Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber. "Infomart Data Centers adds facilities in several strategic US markets to the already impressive roster of carrier hotels in the CHA, making the CHA suite at PTC’15 a valuable meeting location. With so much going on during this conference, the CHA makes sense."

Representatives from the alliance will be available in the CHA hospitality suite located at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Tapa Tower Suite 2330, January 18-21 from 8am-6pm daily. Please contact info@thecarrierhotelalliance.com to arrange meeting times.
