Peering Services and Internet Exchange Points
Your data deserves a lightning-fast, powerful network-to-network connection. When you peer with Telehouse, you’ll interconnect seamlessly with hundreds of partners, exchange your IP traffic at up to 100GigE speeds, and experience dramatic cost savings by averaging down bandwidth fees.
Telehouse anticipated the massive demand for efficient peering, and in 1996, established NYIIX, and LAIIX, which have one of the largest and most active memberships of any International Peering Exchanges in the US. We can provide access in our data centers to some of the largest Peering Exchanges globally, giving our customers access to hundreds of partners around the world.
All of our Peering Exchanges are open, so you don’t have to colocate with us to join.
Our Peering Technology
The upgrade to the Centillion Platform gives you Dual Core MPLS/VPLS infrastructure and utilizes the Brocade MLXe platform, the ultimate in network capacity, management and simplicity. Both IXPs support IPv4 and IPv6 protocols.
Both of our US Internet Peering Exchanges are based on Brocade’s carrier class ultra high-speed platform and offer on-site Thunderbird route servers for seamless setup and immediate connectivity.
Stephen Wilcox, CEO, IX Reach:
“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 NYIIX a true differentiator.”Join our Peering Exchange

What is Peering?
Peering is simply the settlement-free reciprocal exchange of Internet traffic between ISPs (Internet Service Providers) for mutual benefit.
Neither party pays the other for the exchange of traffic. Usually each derives revenue from its own customers, but larger ISPs may charge smaller ones for peering with them.
In this way, the Internet has become the behemoth that it is. IXPs are a prime example of The Network Effect, in that the more people use it, the more value it has to everyone.
Why Companies Peer
- To save money by reducing connectivity costs
- It’s more efficient and increases performance
- Lower latency with faster, more direct data flow
- Greater control over their traffic
The difference between private and public Peering
Private peering requires direct cabling between the two parties. Cabling greatly increases cost and time, but private peering is more secure than public peering because it is a closed network.
Public Peering connects partners through an IXP (Internet Exchange Point). It costs less because only a single cable is required to connect to all peering partners. An ISP can Peer with multiple ISPs with a single router interface.
How to reduce bandwidth and transit costs through Peering Exchanges
An IXP reduces your average per-bit delivery cost by reducing a portion of your upstream traffic. Peering routes traffic more directly, which reduces your traffic-time-to-destination ratio. Peering improves routing efficiency, which also cuts costs. These Internet Peering cost savings can add up. 75% is not unusual.
Peering increases fault tolerance to keep your data protected and operational in the event of a failure. Our IXP sales team can calculate your savings.
