Telehouse Makes NYIIX Connectivity Available at CoreSite Data Center Facility

Managed IT services provider Telehouse has made the New York Internet Exchange (NYIIX) available to CoreSite (News - Alert) Realty Corporation’s Secaucus, NJ facility. The company offers data center solutions for enterprises, MSPs and cloud providers through its facilities in New Jersey and Manhattan, which already has NYIIX connectivity. The added connectivity in New Jersey provides high-performance and secure access for CoreSite’s entire New York market.

NYIIX gives users direct access to global mainstream ISPs and content providers in addition to niche regional providers via network-to-network connectivity. The exchange also offers low latency and a variety of route server options and is IPV4, IPV6 and jumbo frame capable. The CoreSite deal is Telehouse’s seventh NYIIX deployment in the tri-state region.

The NJ CoreSite facility offers scalability and a competitive price point as well as diverse network paths for cloud providers using the company’s Manhattan facility. Last month, CoreSite announced SummitIG was providing dark-fiber connectivity for the company’s campus in Reston, VA. The company is also working with China Telecom to expand the U.S. footprint for one of the company’s customers using a deployment at CoreSite’s Santa Clara, CA (News - Alert) campus.

"Since opening NY2 in Secaucus, New Jersey, we have continued to enhance the features and interconnectivity of that facility as well as in our Manhattan facility, NY1," said Ben Green, vice president of sales, network and mobility at CoreSite. "Adding NYIIX peering services at NY2 gives our customers network dense connectivity with scalable data center solutions throughout the entire CoreSite New York market."

"NYIIX will continue to evolve and unite the fragmented New York peering market to further promote New York as the largest gateway to North America,” added Akio Sugeno, vice president of internet engineering, operations and business development at Telehouse. “Peering is an integral part of the Internet and we are fully committed to provide the best peering infrastructure to the Internet community."
