The THINK NEXT Company
While the world was perfecting online networks, Telehouse was perfecting the infrastructure to support the increasing demand for network operations we knew were coming. Building over 40 data centers didn’t happen overnight.
Our parent company KDDI, a global Fortune 300 company, realized the future, and constructed the transpacific cable that connected continents, and is still the main artery for data flow across the Pacific today.
This was the beginning of a network of infrastructure designed to support a massive global movement to the Internet.
A Company of Firsts
It was 1989, the year the first text message was sent, the year the first commercial ISPs began operations and gas was 93 cents. The same year, Telehouse built the Teleport in New York, the first purpose built data center in the US, which is our US Headquarters today. This structure was built to our exact specifications and is a powerhouse for our New York customers. Construction followed with a second, Telehouse North in London’s Docklands in 1990, and we continued to expand across Europe and Asia.
