What is a meet-me-room? Where is a meet-me-room located? The meet-me-room provides opportunities for communications firms to exchange data with hundreds of telecom carriers and internet service providers (ISP) that are all within the same facility.
There are two types of facilities used for interconnections; meet-me-room is usually small and located in a carrier hotel like The Westin Building. If the facility is larger the meet-me-room is unto itself, detached from a carrier hotel.
The meet-me-room is a gateway to the internet with quick, reliable and cost-effective connections between the tenants in the building, which happen to be ISP providers, local exchange companies, cable and e-commerce companies. Telecommunications organizations and providers can connect to each other and exchange information without the added cost of local fees. The meet-me-room distributes traffic at a low cost. Organizations that use a large amount of bandwidth typically benefit from the meet-me-room.
The size of a meet-me-room is typically on the small side. Because fiber runs from a tenant’s suite to patch panels and then to the meet-me-room to be interconnected.
The meet-me-room interconnects tenants. The Westin Building, located in downtown Seattle in Washington state, is a primary carrier interconnection facility that is carrier-neutral with an abundance of interconnections. This allows any tenant to interconnect. This primary carrier hotel offers a few choices for tenants: the fiber meet-me-room, copper meet-me-room, the fast and ever-growing exchange point of the Seattle Internet Exchange (SIX), and the Pacific NW Giga Pop (PNWGP) who designs, implements and manages the multi-state high bandwidth and high-capacity network.
