Symmetry Access Control and CompleteView secure all Telx data center facilities across the United States.

Telx helps companies build more agile businesses faster with reduced infrastructure complexity and broader reach to new markets. Founded in 2000, Telx built the largest carrier-neutral, physical layer interconnection data center in New York City.  Through acquisitions and facility expansions, Telx built a national portfolio of interconnection and collocation data centers.  Digital Realty Trust acquired Telx in 2015.

As the company grew over the 14 years, each data center facility operated independently, resulting in different landlord and lease arrangements.  Disparate video systems were installed at the nine different locations.  The one consistency was the installation of AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Enterprise access control system.

In 2013, Telx made the decision to move to a single platform for its physical security technology program, and Director of Security, John Matis was tasked with creating its multi-year strategy.  He moved quickly into the discovery phase and began looking at video solutions to integrate with Symmetry.

“I had to research alternative solutions, pass the budget for those solutions and determine a project management concept to bring together all our disparate video systems (and some security systems) into a common best-market solution,” said Telx, Director of Security, John Matis. This was no small task.
