New 48 IX Internet Exchange Available for Interconnection in EdgeConneX Phoenix Edge Data Center

EdgeConneX, a pioneer in edge data center development, announced that 48 IX, a Phoenix-based Internet Exchange, is available for interconnection in the EdgeConneX Phoenix Edge Data Center (EDC), PHX-01.

Located within 10 miles of downtown Phoenix, EdgeConneX’s 80,908 square-feet. facility was chosen as 48 IX’s first landing point due to its customer base of primarily ISPs, content providers and cloud providers.

Established in 2020 as a non-profit corporation, 48 IX places high priority on open communication, performance, security and neutrality. Almost all of 48 IX’s provisioning is automated, which means participant ports are brought up quickly with a recent network provisioned up within approximately 5 minutes of executing agreements. 48 IX offers 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps ports at the same cost, which covers the non-profit’s costs.

The internet exchange’s active networks include Stellar Technologies, Hurricane Electric, Cloudflare and WhiteSky Communications. 48 IX also actively communicates with all the networks at EdgeConneX’s PHX-01 listed in PeeringDB.

“Consistently named one of the top emerging tech hubs in the country, the tech sector in Phoenix is positioned for significant growth in the coming years,” said Aron Smith, Vice President for Interconnection Product Management at EdgeConneX. “We are excited to partner with 48 IX as the founding facility and further enhance connectivity options at the Edge in the Phoenix market to meet the demand now and in the future.”
