LINX and TELEHOUSE NYIIX Partner to Strengthen US Interconnection ServicesJune 14, 2021
TELEHOUSE NYIIX and The London Internet Exchange (LINX) have today announced a new strategic partnership within the U.S. NYIIX and LINX NoVA, both Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), will be interconnecting to allow each IXP’s members to peer with the other party’s members. The connection is planned to go live in the next few weeks.
Together, these entities are expanding their customers’ ability to peer, enabling access to a greater “Network of Networks” and empowering enhanced speed, increased control and bandwidth, greater reliability and lower costs.
LINX recently announced a further network expansion to its U.S. interconnection point, LINX NoVA, based in Northern Virginia, moving from three data center points of presence (PoPs) to four. Driven by U.S. growth and an existing strong partner relationship with TELEHOUSE Europe, this NYIIX partnership allows networks peering at LINX NoVA or any of NYIIX’s U.S. locations to leverage the strong ecosystems across this mutual portfolio of interconnection points.
Established in 1996 and founded by TELEHOUSE America, the NYIIX Peering Exchange is one of the largest neutral Internet exchange points on the U.S. East Coast and across the world. Today, TELEHOUSE America delivers interconnection points in New York, Philadelphia and Los Angeles with over 250 member networks connected and peering and more than 1 Tbps in peak traffic.
Jennifer Holmes, CCO for LINX, has been overseeing the partnership. She states, “We have had such a strong relationship with TELEHOUSE in London for over 25 years, and growing our U.S. footprint has been high on our strategic agenda for a while. We are really excited to be partnering with the team at TELEHOUSE America, KDDI America and TELEHOUSE NYIIX to grow peering services in the U.S. together – for the good of the Internet.”
Akio Sugeno, VP of Engineering for TELEHOUSE NYIIX, says, “Our mission at TELEHOUSE NYIIX has always been to provide unparalleled connectivity, data transmission, speed and cost reduction for every business and organization connecting across the U.S. or the globe. This partnership will further reinforce and enhance NYIIX’s service offerings to the Internet community.”
LINX NoVA is a fast-growing interconnection platform, present in multiple data center locations within the Northern Virginia region – a key location for networks to be present. It is a well-established IXP with many diverse networks connected, including key content delivery networks (CDNs) and regional ISPs. LINX NoVA is close to the Virginia Beach Landing Station, where key subsea cables terminate, including MAREA (U.S. to Europe) and BRUSA (South America to U.S.). This further cements the area as a popular location for hosting and interconnection.
