IX Operator DE-CIX Set to Go Live in New York Area at 1025Connect Data Center

DE-CIX, one of the world’s largest Internet Exchange (IX) operators, is now taking orders for connectivity to its platform in its latest New York-area Point-of-Presence (PoP) at the 1025Connect data center. 1025Connect customers would now be able to benefit from global, leading peering and Layer 2 connectivity solutions.

The DE-CIX access point is set to go live April 15, 2018, providing peering members in New York with direct access to a number of subsea systems and global networks currently located at the 1025Connect data center, including Aqua Comms and Epsilon. DE-CIX’s network interconnection platform would give 1025Connect data center customers access to “world-class” peering and connectivity solutions for enhancing IP performance.

“Bringing the DE-CIX PoP live at the 1025Connect facility has been one of our most anticipated projects,” said Hunter Newby, Partner, 1025Connect. “When it comes to access to submarine capacity, affordable and robust terrestrial connectivity, direct to cloud interconnection and more, the DE-CIX platform is a critical gateway.  Now local and global customers on Long Island can access the world’s leading Internet Exchange point, providing unsurpassed connectivity options directly at the Continental Edge.”

DE-CIX’s GlobePEER Remote Service provides turnkey connectivity to DE-CIX Frankfurt, Germany, where over 900 unique networks connect. DE-CIX’s New York exchange provides reach to over 150 unique networks facilitating direct connectivity for North American, Caribbean, Latin American and European networks seeking peering opportunities with U.S.-based content and network providers.
