Webair has announced that it has partnered with DE-CIX to offer direct access to world-class peering services within its Long Island-based NY1 data center facility. As a result of this new partnership, NY1 customers can now easily access DE-CIX New York via Webair’s advanced interconnection fabric or secure physical cross-connects.

DE-CIX is the latest addition to NY1’s vast ecosystem of network services that customers can securely connect to within the facility via its physical Meet-Me-Room (MMR) and virtual interconnection fabric. Customers can also access a multitude of transport, transit, and public fabrics that are either built into the facility directly or via Webair’s MMR extensions to 60 Hudson St., 111 8th Ave. and 325 Hudson St. in New York. A Tier III-rated data center, NY1 is a carrier-neutral facility and features no monthly charge for cross-connects. The data center is also SAS SSAE 16 and HIPAA-certified, each critical for health care and financial services organizations to achieve strenuous compliance requirements.

Connection to DE-CIX New York is simple and efficient utilizing Webair’s flexible and scalable connectivity options available at speeds ranging from 100Mbps to 10Gbps. This new level of interconnectivity provides Webair customers with the opportunity to lower network traffic exchange costs, reduce latency, and enhance IP performance and resilience by tapping into the DE-CIX network. DE-CIX operates the industry’s most robust and advanced peering platform, providing expanded interconnection opportunities to over 850 internet service providers (ISPs), including broadband providers, content delivery networks, web hosts, and incumbent operators from more than 60 countries.

“With 135 networks connected, DE-CIX continues to be the fastest-growing internet exchange in the New York-New Jersey metro area,” shares Ed d’Agostino, vice president of DE-CIX North America. “With this partnership, we are expanding our availability for networks – now for the first time for networks on Long Island. We continue to be — by far — the most accessible IX in the New York area.”

“The addition of Webair to DE-CIX New York is a testament to companies recognizing the value of a truly neutral exchange, and further cultivates our mission to provide these interconnection ecosystems in all major facilities throughout this market as well as others like it around the globe.”
