Operated by TELEHOUSE and recently upgraded to an MPLS platform, NYIIX is a leading, neutral Internet exchange point, which streamlines connectivity using a scalable peering infrastructure. IX Reach joins a total of five other resellers in NYIIX’s reseller program, which officially launched in the fourth quarter of 2014.
“NYIIX is the largest open international Internet exchange in the Northeast, and one with the largest peering membership base where colocating is not a prerequisite, making it a true differentiator,” said Steve Wilcox, CEO at IX Reach. “Additionally, both TELEHOUSE and NYIIX have a strong reputation in Europe, and therefore we expect this to work well on both a domestic and global level, with focus on transatlantic, European-based companies that want to peer with NYIIX. This strategy will support our objectives to grow our business in the U.S. as well.”
“Having our first global reseller on board signifies the ongoing evolution of the New York peering market and our commitment to the global market as a whole,” said Akio Sugeno, vice president of Internet engineering, operations and business development at TELEHOUSE. “With the addition of IX Reach to NYIIX’s reseller program, peering is now more accessible for small and medium sized networks and developing markets outside of the United States that aren’t necessarily ready to deploy their own PoPs.”
