Telehouse has announced that its New York Internet Exchange (NYIIX) is now available to CoreSite Realty Corporation via its “NY2” facility in Secaucus, NJ. Telehouse’s NYIIX, the largest public peering exchange in New York, is already available in CoreSite’s “NY1” facility in Manhattan. The added availability of NYIIX to NY2 provides access across CoreSite’s entire New York Market.
Telehouse’s deployment at NY2 marks the company’s seventh NYIIX deployment in the New York City and Tri-State area. Members of NYIIX gain direct access to global mainstream ISPs and content providers, as well as niche regional ISPs and content providers with powerful network-to-network interconnections. The low latency of the exchange provides enhanced network performance and improved interconnectivity with other NYIIX members, offers route server options, and is IPV4, IPV6,` and jumbo frame capable.
“The expansion of NYIIX into NY2 allows Telehouse to add another important peering location option for its members in one of the newest state of the art facilities in New Jersey,” says Akio Sugeno, vice president of Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development at Telehouse. “NYIIX will continue to evolve and unite the fragmented New York peering market to further promote New York as the largest gateway to North America. Peering is an integral part of the Internet and we are fully committed to provide the best peering infrastructure to the Internet community.”
CoreSite’s NY2 facility, which opened in December 2013, creates a scalable option for network, cloud and enterprises looking to expand at a more competitive total cost in the greater New York metro area, while optimizing performance with direct, low-latency access to regional points of interconnection. In addition, NY2 offers seamless operations with diverse network paths and latency below 0.3 ms to cloud providers deployed in CoreSite’s NY1 facility in Manhattan.
“Since opening NY2 in Secaucus, New Jersey, we have continued to enhance the features and interconnectivity of that facility as well as in our Manhattan facility, NY1,” comments Ben Green, Vice President of Sales, Network and Mobility at CoreSite. “Adding NYIIX peering services at NY2 gives our customers network dense connectivity with scalable data center solutions throughout the entire CoreSite New York market.”
