TelCove, a provider of communications services built on its own fiber network, and Peak 10 are teaming up to offer high-speed network and data services to the reborn American Tobacco Historic District complex in Durham.

TelCove, which has a 50-city network, has picked Peak 10 to act as its hub for business services in and around RTP, the companies said Tuesday.

Peak 10 executives have talked with management at the American Tobacco complex for months about the possibility of extending services to the growing list of clients in the remodeled buildings.

Laura Philipp , general manager with TelCove, said the company and Peak 10 would work to . “provide data center and managed services including co-location and disaster recovery” to American Tobacco tenants.

TelCove is establishing a fiber hub at the complex and linking it to operations at Peak 10. The link also gives Peak 10 a third link to Internet backbone capacity.

The American Tobacco complex includes more than 1 million square feet of office space and a list of high-profile tenants, including Compuware, Duke University, GlaxoSmithKline, McKinney and Intersouth Partners.

“The American Tobacco District has become the preeminent space in the commercial real estate market,” said Greg Rollet, vice president and general manager of Peak 10 in the Triangle. “Our collaboration with TelCove not only improves the value proposition the District can offer potential tenants but also strengthens our data center’s infrastructure by adding another first class carrier and access point to the Internet.”

TelCove, which is based in Canonsburg, PA, provides Internet, data and voice services. Its 50 markets are in the eastern US.

“Locating the fiber hub in our facility not only enhances our relationship, but also offers new service options previously unavailable to our customers,” Rollett said.
