DE-CIX New York today announced the completion of its Open-IX certification process. The Open-IX association (OIX) granted DE-CIX OIX-1 certification on March 9th after the OIX Board confirmed that the exchange met all technical requirements, minimum service levels and information-sharing provision requirements.

The certification furtha749ed7556er affirms DE-CIX New York’s commitment to true neutrality and broad access. Like its parent organization DE-CIX in Frankfurt, Germany, the New York exchange places an emphasis on being data center and carrier-neutral. This model allows for easy entry into the exchange and has led DE-CIX New York to add more than 55 networks and 100 access points over the last year, which are both numbers that continue to steadily climb.

“My team worked hard to develop DE-CIX New York into an exchange that adds value to the Internet ecosystem in the New York metro,” states Harald A. Summa, President of DE-CIX. “We are pleased that our New York operation is now certified by Open-IX. This confirms our high operational and technical standards.”

The exchange’s OIX-1 certification allows DE-CIX New York customers at all enabled data centers in New York and New Jersey to take advantage of the exchange. Among other sites, DE-CIX New York operates in major data centers such as 60 Hudson Street, 111 8th Avenue, 32 Avenue of the Americas, 85 10th Avenue and 165 Halsey Street in Newark, NJ.
