Arelion today announced a new Point-of-Presence (PoP) at global edge data center provider HostDime’s Guadalajara, Mexico carrier-neutral facility. HostDime’s Mexico data center provides colocation, bare metal compute, and interconnection data center infrastructure services to Mexico and is an ideal facility for global businesses needing to reach Mexican markets.

Arelion’s fully diverse, resilient PoP in Guadalajara avoids backhauling from the United States, enabling improved customer experiences through direct, low-latency access to its Tier-1 network. Through this PoP, Arelion can provide local and national Internet service providers with diverse connectivity to its existing PoPs in Mexico City, Querétaro and Monterrey, including local access to cloud content in Querétaro and Monterrey.

Guadalajara resides in Jalisco, which leads Mexico in nearshoring demand, comprising 47% of the country’s total demand, with electronics and cybernetics accounting for 75% of Jalisco’s production of goods. With this new PoP, Arelion positions itself as a reliable connectivity partner for multinational enterprises in Guadalajara’s thriving electronics, manufacturing, and information technology sectors.

“Arelion continues its mission of organic expansion in Mexico to provide resilient, low-latency connectivity to wholesale and enterprise customers. This new PoP in Guadalajara will serve as an aggregation point for Internet service providers seeking access to Mexico’s largest connectivity markets, strengthening the region’s ecosystem through Tier-1 connectivity services.” – Luis Velasquez, Mexico Business Manager, Arelion.

“Arelion’s new PoP at our carrier-neutral GDL data center will bolster the local Guadalajara network connectivity, providing high-capacity access to cloud, content and connectivity services for companies that rely on our Guadalajara data center to localize content & traffic. Our data center is one of the only carrier-neutral sites in the region. With Arelion, our facility strengthens its position as a primary Guadalajara network hub through fully resilient, diverse connectivity to Arelion’s global Tier-1 network being on-net.” – said Manny Vivar, HostDime CEO.

HostDime’s Mexico data center is also home to the only peering exchange in the region: Guadalajara Internet Exchange Point (GDL-IXP). With GDL-IX at our data center, it keeps Internet traffic inside Guadalajara and reduce costs associated with the exchange of traffic between network carriers, content providers, and ISPs. This yields better latency, stability, efficiency, and quality, all at a lower cost. Multiple ISPs can connect their networks without having to pay for transit from another provider. This gives direct access to other providers across the globe, allowing for faster data transmission times with fewer hops than if each ISP had to rely on indirect routes through third-party transit providers.

This partnership with Arelion, HostDime, and GDL-IXP will accelerate improvement of Guadalajara’s network ecosystem that will benefit the entire community of users and providers. This PoP is Arelion’s ninth PoP in Mexico and will be operational in late Q4 2023.
