New LINX and TELEHOUSE NYIIX US Interconnection Service Goes LiveAugust 26, 2021
TELEHOUSE NYIIX and The London Internet Exchange (LINX) proudly announce that their new joint U.S. interconnection service is now available. The strategic partnership forged between both Internet Exchange Points (IXP), announced in June 2021, interconnects the entities’ mutual ecosystems, empowering members of each IXP with expanded peering opportunities. The partnership also provides member networks with a redundant and resilient route from New York to Northern Virginia.
The route between NYIIX in New York and LINX NoVA — a fast-growing interconnection platform based out of Ashburn, Manassas and Reston in Northern Virginia — is now officially live, and requests for this new service are already coming in.
As organizations seek to enhance control over their traffic flows, improve network performance, reduce costs and expand bandwidth capacities, this extended interconnection fabric sets members of LINX and NYIIX up for digitally transformative results. Together, these entities are expanding their customers’ capabilities with access to a greater “network of networks” for added advantage.
Akio Sugeno, VP of Engineering for TELEHOUSE NYIIX, says, “This partnership combines the robust resources of two advantageous peering fabrics, making the whole even greater than the sum of its parts. Empowering data and IT is about getting data where it needs to go as efficiently as possible, and we’re proud to be architecting the solution that achieves that for our growing array of members. We look forward to seeing how this service helps customers thrive in the digital economy.”
