TELEHOUSE has announced the expansion of its New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) to five new locations, through its global reseller partner, IX Reach. Now NYIIX customers can access the exchange through IX Reach's geographically diverse points-of-presence (PoPs), in addition to its metropolitan area network in New York.
IX Reach joined NYIIX in February 2015 as its first premier global reseller. Furthering the partnership, customers can now connect into NYIIX and take advantage of a fractional port offering not only in New York, but also Ashburn, Virginia; Chicago, Illinois; Boston, Massachusetts; Dallas, Texas; and Toronto, Ontario.
"Historically, United States-owned Internet exchanges have not offered a variety of fractional ports, until Telehouse opened NYIIX in 1996," says Ruth Plater, vice president of sales and marketing for IX Reach. "We are excited to provide our customers access to this level of flexibility across all of our markets"
"Now that NYIIX can be accessed from interconnection hotbeds other than New York, a significantly greater number of networks can gain value from neutral peering and cultivate ecosystems more effectively," says Akio Sugeno, vice president of Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development at TELEHOUSE. "We look forward to leveraging the IX Reach platform to greatly expand our radius of coverage."
Telehouse and IX Reach are attending NANOG 65 in Montreal, Quebec from October 5-7.
