Los Angeles – May 2, 2018 – Rising Realty Partners (Rising), a full-service investment platform specializing in creating world-class commercial and industrial properties, announces that its West 7 Center is experiencing increased demand for high quality colocation space from over-the-top (OTT) content providers and IoT developers. As the city’s first purpose-built carrier and cloud-neutral Tier III+ facility, West 7 Center is an optimal choice for customers with data-intensive, ultra low latency needs. According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index, mobile video streaming accounted for 60% of all mobile data traffic in 2016. By 2021, this figure is expected to rise to 78%. As a result, OTT content providers increasingly require reliable content delivery networks (CDNs) to satisfy customer demand and improve streaming experiences. Similarly, IoT developers need ultra low latency connectivity between their centralized cloud architecture and edge devices with limited computing abilities. “With our in-house telecom expertise and West 7 Center’s proximity both to businesses and new residential developments in Los Angeles, we are well suited to house mission-critical equipment and data for OTTs and CDN providers,” says Marc Gittleman, Executive Vice President of Third Party Services at Rising Realty Partners. “Location close to the edge also provides the ultra low latency needed for the city’s IoT developers; with West 7 Center, data processing and analysis can occur close to edge devices, further ensuring their uptime and speed of communications.” In a Los Angeles market often known for a shortage of colocation capacity, West 7 Center has the flexibility and capacity to deliver the space, power and cooling OTTs and IoT developers require. The facility currently has 13MW of power and 172,000 square feet of space available. Backed by two central plants with N+1 power/cooling redundancy, the building also has over 70,000 gallons of fuel on hand at anytime to support mission-critical operations in case of emergency or power outages. Although it already exceeded seismic standards when it was first built, West 7 Center has since undergone upgrades to further increase its reliability and efficiency.
