NetActuate has joined the New York International Exchange (NYIIX) as a reseller partner. NYIIX, which is operated by Telehouse America, streamlines connectivity using state-of-the-art, scalable peering infrastructure. NYIIX recently upgraded its Centillion platform to Centillion II to meet strong market demand for 100G ports.
Through NetActuate’s partnership with NYIIX, small- and medium-sized networks can more easily extend their reach. In addition to using NetActuate’s BGP anycast platform, clients can connect directly to NYIIX and establish peering directly with all connected NYIIX members, without having to plan for and invest in physical infrastructure.
Businesses in Los Angeles London or Hong Kong seeking connectivity to New York can provision access and deliver ports to NetActuate’s suite of services, including private and multi-tenant cloud, bare metal servers, colocation, BGP anycast and SDN.
“We are excited to offer our clients streamlined, reliable and stable connectivity to the largest and most active peering exchange in the Northeast,” said Mark Price, President of NetActuate. “This partnership is an essential piece of our overall growth strategy in the United States.”
“Having NetActuate onboard as a reseller signifies the ongoing evolution of the New York peering market and our commitment to building our communities’ awareness and education on peering through resellers,” stated Akio Sugeno, Vice President of Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development for Telehouse.
Operated by Telehouse, NYIIX was founded in 1996. It is one of the largest public peering exchange points on the U.S. East Coast with seven locations, including 85 Tenth Avenue, 7 Teleport Drive, 60 Hudson, 1118th Avenue and 32 Avenue of Americas. In New Jersey, NYIIX has two locations, 165 Halsey in Newark, and 2 Emerson Lane in Secaucus.
