Verizon Digital Media Services and colocation data center operator, TELEHOUSE, have announced the formation of a long-term plan to build out Internet Exchange points. The partnership will enable Verizon to further expand their content delivery network (CDN) presence.
“Working with TELEHOUSE will enable us to further expand our content delivery network presence,” said Verizon Digital Media Services’ Chief Technology Officer Rob Peters. “Together, we will augment both scale and network performance, to successfully meet the increasing consumer demand for quick, reliable access to online content.”
Verizon Digital Media Services is part of AOL, a Verizon Communications, Inc. company, and has an open peering policy. Through an array of “industry leading” e-commerce, security and OTT products, Verizon Digital Media Services enables content creators, publishers, broadcasters and enterprises to deliver their content to audiences anytime, anywhere, on any device.
“As a true global leader in the digital media supply chain market, having Verizon Digital Media Services at all TELEHOUSE’s Internet Exchange Points gives tremendous value to our organization and its peering members,” said Akio Sugeno, VP of Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development. “I strongly encourage any network to join NYIIX or LAIIX and publicly peer with Verizon Digital Media Services.”
There are 48 TELEHOUSE-branded colocation data centers available in 23 cities throughout Asia, Africa, North America and EMEA.
