Monday, May 2, 2011

Mexican fixed-line telco Telmex (NYSE: TMX) is seeking to expand the capacity of its data center business in the country through its partnership with HP (NYSE: HPQ), Telmex CFO Adolfo Cerezo told a conference call with investors.

The company currently has two data centers in Monterrey and Querétaro, although Cerezo did not detail the level of capacity they have.

"We're currently expanding the capacity of those centers because we have seen there is additional demand for that. Those centers were formed like a real estate business and have evolved into real data centers for services to our customers and for security purposes," Cerezo said.

The executive said the centers are certified and comply with the highest standards.

He added that the way forward was through taking advantage of HP's expertise in that field and of Telmex's established customer base.

"When you're in this business of IT with communications, you have to join efforts with others. This is a joint venture with HP. We're taking advantage of their knowledge and our experience," Cerezo said.
