NYIIX Centillion II to Address Rising Market Demand for 100G Ports
NEW YORK – February 19, 2018 – TELEHOUSE America, a KDDI Group company and the global leader for data centers, international internet exchanges and managed IT services, announces that it has partnered with Extreme Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: EXTR) to upgrade the New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) Centillion Platform to Centillion II in order to meet strong market demands for 100G ports.
NYIIX selected Extreme Networks for its superior ability to provide future-proof architecture, carrier-grade reliability, and resources to support its customers. The Centillion II Platform is 400G-ready and consists of Extreme’s SLX routers for both core routers and edge routers, which significantly increase the number of available 100G ports. NYIIX members will be migrated to the upgraded platform in multiple phases beginning in late February.
NYIIX was founded in 1996. It is one of the largest public peering exchange points on the East Coast of the U.S. with seven locations in the New York metro area, including 85 Tenth Avenue, 7 Teleport Drive, 60 Hudson Street, 111 8th Avenue and 32 Avenue of Americas. In New Jersey, NYIIX has two locations: 165 Halsey Street in Newark and 2 Emerson Lane in Secaucus.
In line with the overall business growth, the peering traffic through NYIIX has been steadily rising. Reports show the current traffic peaking at over 600 Gigabits per second.
“I am pleased to announce the new Centillion II Platform,” says Akio Sugeno, Vice President, Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development, TELEHOUSE America. “The current market demands have accelerated our need to upgrade the platform. Strong demand for 100G ports is the result of our continuing ability to increase NYIIX members along with customer confidence in our service. Such an accomplishment proves that NYIIX is one of the most important IXPs in the United States.”
“We’re excited to partner with TELEHOUSE America to provide NYIIX members with cutting-edge solutions capable of meeting their needs,” adds Nabil Bukhari, Senior Vice President, Products, Extreme Networks. “With the new update to the Centillion Platform, NYIIX members will experience higher capacity and more redundant infrastructure, enhancing the overall experience and providing better support for customers.”
The TELEHOUSE America / NYIIX team is currently attending NANOG 72 at the Loews Atlanta Hotel at Atlanta, Georgia. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a meeting with the team during the conference.
