NetActuate offers a full suite of services from the Westin building, and interconnects with the Seattle Internet Exchange (SIX) as well as numerous providers to extend our network in this important hub. the Westin Building Exchange (WBX) offers high availability (up to five nines), over 250 carriers and service providers, and nearly 40,000 cross connects. In addition, WBX is home to the Seattle Internet Exchange, an independent peering point that boasts over 200 routers.
The combined growth of the telecom and internet-related companies was so substantial that the minority telecom and data com carrier community within our building soon became the majority growing from 30% of our space occupancy to now occupying 70% of our 34 story building. Somewhere along the way we unwittingly joined the ranks of other "carrier hotels" who were responding to the market as we were. Today, you'll have to travel as far south as San Francisco and east as Denver to find the next carrier hotel with a similar carrier/service provider concentration.
Given our location in the Pacific Northwest, we are a natural link to Canada, Alaska, and all of Asia along the Pacific Rim.
