1025Connect, a carrier hotel from Long Island with a network-neutral Meet-Me Room (MMR) for network interconnection and colocation, has added DE-CIX – the carrier and data center-neutral Internet Exchange operator with multiple platforms across the United States.
“With the addition of DE-CIX New York, 1025Connect has enhanced its highly unique offering,” said Dan Lunde, Managing Director of 1025Connect. “1025Connect now provides Long Island businesses as well as global content and carrier networks the unprecedented opportunity to manage Internet traffic more efficiently and reliably while at the same time reducing their operating expenses.”
With 5.5+ Terabits per second of peak traffic, DE-CIX Frankfurt is one of the world’s leading Internet exchanges. DE-CIX serves 1000+ carriers, ISPs and content networks from 60+ countries, including all leading international players in various metro markets in Europe, the Middle East and North America.
“DE-CIX New York‘s expansion to 1025Connect’s carrier-neutral data center marks the first peering exchange to be directly available on Long Island, further fulfilling our mission of bringing exchange access to a greater number of data centers and networks and expanding the New York peering community,” said Ed d’Agostino, Vice President, DE-CIX North America. “With this deployment, 1025Connect customers can get Layer 2 access to the nearly 150 networks available on DE-CIX New York. Plus, 1025Connect customers can also take advantage of the growing number of DE-CIX’s VLAN services. Our GlobePEER Remote Service allows turnkey connectivity to our massive DE-CIX Frankfurt exchange, and our MetroVLAN service provides very low cost private connections to other networks connected to the DE-CIX New York exchange, including ‘remote’ networks that connect via transport and don’t have POP in the New York market. DE-CIX’s services will greatly enhance the connectivity options for networks that come to 1025Connect.”
