East-West or North-South?

East-west and north-south are terms with specific meaning in the data center business. East-West means traffic that moves between servers in a single data center. North-south means traffic that moves between a data center and other locations. 

But the terms also are important in a traditional geographic sense. Most global traffic flows--geographically--east and west, although a growing volume of traffic also flows north-south. That is the sense in which executives at FP Telecom describe their business.

FP Telecom's primary business is long haul transport between North America and South America.
