DE-CIX New York has completed one of the most important phases in developing an Internet exchange: Getting the Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) on board to peer. The addition of all major CDNs to DE-CIX New York would bring key content to the exchange, enhancing the exchange’s strength and working as a growth catalyst.
An Internet exchange is similar to other communities: the more participants on the exchange, the more value each participant derives from it. Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) carry billions of packets of Internet content, including video, music, business data, website content and much more. Over the last several years, CDNs have evolved to deliver an ever-larger percentage of overall Internet traffic, making them extremely important to Internet exchanges.
DE-CIX New York has added more than 80 new customer networks in its first year and continues to grow. DE-CIX New York provides a unique, carrier-neutral and distributed model delivered across more than 110 access points throughout the NY/NJ metro area. In its first year of operations, DE-CIX New York has added two locations to its initial eight, delivering the most convenient access facilities for its customer base.
“Internet traffic is more concentrated in CDNs than ever before,” said Frank Orlowski, Chief Marketing Officer at DE-CIX. “Internet traffic is still growing exponentially, and CDNs strategically place hundreds of servers worldwide to deliver content as fast as possible to end users. As we continue to grow, the CDNs that joined us bring attractive sources of the content that users download the most. Major Internet service providers that connect end users will now connect to DE-CIX New York in order to deliver the highest-quality user experience.”
