DALLAS-Equinix Inc., creator and operator of neutral Internet Business Exchange facilities, is on line with a 55,000-sf high-tech center at Dallas’ Infomart, 1950 N. Stemmons Freeway. The company has centers in the greater New York, Washington and Silicon Valley areas

The Dallas IBX project represents “a significant investment,” an Equinix spokeswoman tells GlobeSt.com. The structure is opening with five major tenants–InterNAP Services Corp., Level 3 Communications Inc., NorthPoint Communications, Qwest Communications International and WorldCom Inc.–and there’s more to come, says the spokeswoman. The structure is opening with 30% of the space leased, GlobeSt.com has been told.

“The Dallas area has become an increasingly important technology hub for North America,” says Peter Van Camp, CEO for the Mountain View, CA-based operation. The centers provide a secure home for the Internet where content providers, ASPs and e-commerce companies have the ability to interconnect with a choice of best-in-class carriers, ISPs, and site and performance management companies. Meanwhile, tenants also can deliver content faster, access multiple networks, eliminate local loop charges, increase transaction-based revenues and increase customer satisfaction via a higher quality customer web experience. Equinix says tenants can lower training and staffing needs while servicing larger customer bases.

The centers contain mission-critical hardware, 24/7 security guards, biometric hand-geometry scanners on all doors and cages, disaster protection and tightly controlled customer access. Equinix’s telecommunications and technical support staff are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
