As a nonprofit interconnection platform, IX-Denver received support from FORETHOUGHT.net,
an independent internet, cloud, hosted PBX and phone service provider
serving the Denver Metro and rural Colorado market. FORETHOUGHT.net
provided the switch and direct connectivity between IX-Denver's Champa
Street location and EdgeConneX's Edge Data Center campus, located in the
heart of the Denver technology center.

"On the heels of our Denver
Edge Campus
expansion announcement, we are excited to welcome
IX-Denver to our facility and enable customers access to the areas'
leading neutral exchange platform," comments Jeff King, General Manager
for the Denver Market. "In addition to EdgeConneX's capabilities of
supporting deployments of up to 30kW/rack, the new, 115,000-square-foot
facility, built from the ground up in under six months, now provides
access to 10 Gig ports on IX-Denver's protected switching fabric,
enabling greater access to content and improved quality of internet
connectivity for our customers."

"We are grateful to our partnership with FORETHOUGHT.net who continues
to support our nonprofit organizations' mission to expand quality
internet and interconnectivity solutions throughout the greater Denver
market," adds Jay Hanke, Board of Directors of IX-Denver. "With a
presence at EdgeConneX's Edge Campus in downtown Denver, we are
confident that our platform will not only provide greater
interconnectivity options but improve the quality of the internet for
companies throughout the region."
