Managed collocation

Carrier neutral collocation in Downtown Los Angeles

Traditional captive collocation facilities limit you to the use of the collocation provider’s bandwidth. This can inhibit your ability to negotiate bandwidth pricing, purchase additional transit, and build diverse BGP networks. Generally the solution to this is to purchase space from a carrier neutral facility at a substantial cost premium.

Managed collocation from Black Lotus is the solution. Black Lotus gives you the freedom to connect to any carrier, offers DDoS protected IP transit, and provide intelligent remote hands at reasonable rates.
