How a New IXP Will Transform Long Island Connectivity
1025Connect, Long Island’s premier network-neutral Meet-Me Room for network interconnection and colocation, has added DE-CIX, a carrier and data center-neutral Internet Exchange operator with multiple platforms across the U.S., including a distributed platform across major carrier hotels and data centers throughout the New York-New Jersey metro market and an exchange throughout the Dallas, TX metro market. DE-CIX New York, the only major IX platform in the New York market Open-IX certified and one of the top neutral Internet Peering Exchange (IXPs) in the New York metro market, has added a new Point of Presence (PoP) with 1025Connect that serves as host to the easternmost peering point in the New York metro area, enabling easier access and delivery of content distributed to the ‘Continental Edge.’
The Continental Edge at 1025Connect provides customers the ability to lower network traffic exchange costs, reduce latency, and enhance IP performance and resiliency. A key attribute of 1025Connect is the unprecedented access it offers to global submarine cable systems that land on Long Island. DE-CIX’s presence at 1025Connect provides direct access to the most robust, meshed IXP serving the New York metro market with access to over 150 unique networks, while enabling direct access to European and LATAM networks looking to peer with U.S.-based content providers.
