LOGIX’s robust network now reaches over 265,000 miles of fiber that connects cities like Laredo and McAllen to the five largest markets in Texas (Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston), as well as adaptive delta modulation (ADM) capabilities in Corpus Christi. LOGIX offers speeds up to 100 Gbps and carrier solutions that include fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and 100 Gigabit Ethernet. LOGIX is a preferred backhaul solution for several key Latin American carriers at MDC’s data centers, serving as a gateway to Texas markets and providing last-mile solutions with over 3,000 on-net locations in Texas.
“LOGIX has been providing carrier-grade, fiber network services throughout Texas for 35 years and we are committed to continuing our growth in Texas and beyond,” said Matt Murphy, CEO of LOGIX Fiber Networks. “During this time of social distancing and travel restrictions, this expansion of services between Laredo and McAllen is an important step to keeping international businesses connected.”
Laredo has been a strategic choice for carriers due to its proximity to cities like Dallas in the U.S. and Monterrey in Mexico, with a combined population of over 2.5 million people. Just 144 miles to the south of Laredo is McAllen, where the largest concentration of Mexican networks interconnect with Tier-1 networks and content and cloud providers. McAllen is also home to MDC’s flagship data center and the MEX-IX, the only internet exchange in the U.S. focused on peering with Mexico.
The strategic location of these cities on the border and the current ecosystem offers a direct route for carriers to connect with Mexican networks to better meet the growing demand for internet traffic from the northern states in Mexico and provides international carriers with an opportunity to expand into the Mexican market directly.
