What is a Meet-Me Room?
A Meet-Me Room (MMR) is a secure place inside a data center allowing tenants to cross-connect to different ISPs, cable companies, and carriers. This critical room contains server racks and cabinets equipped with hardware supporting high-speed data transfer. By directly connecting clients and carriers, MMR helps organizations eliminate network hops and local loop fees, establishing high-bandwidth connectivity without the traffic ever leaving the data center. It enables data center service users easy provisioning of cross-connects to their carriers or services of choice, delivering cost-effective, secure, and fast data exchange.

Located at the intersection of two major fiber routes in Phoenix, our flagship facility enables uninterrupted connectivity. Through two dedicated Meet-Me Rooms, we provide a redundant point of access to over 40 different carriers, including the proprietary phoenixNAP Tier 1 carrier blend. With custom and bundled cabling options and special prices for bundled fiber, we offer scalable solutions that reduce TCO and help businesses grow.
phoenixNAP’s Meet-Me Rooms are encased in fire-rated walls, with 24/7 video surveillance and two-person multifactor authentication ensuring maximum physical security. Our MMRs have a dedicated Cross-Connect Room (CCR) with two divergently trenched Meet-Me Vaults (MMVs), helping carriers deploy and augment their network quickly for increased availability and redundancy.
