Screen shot 2015-05-12 at 12.16.40 PMIt has been a year since DE-CIX New York passed its first customer traffic in May 2014 and what a year it has been! Adding over 70 networks and establishing over 110 access points across the metro, DE-CIX has proven to be the fastest-growing Internet exchange in the New York/New Jersey metro area.

DE-CIX’s carrier-neutral, distributed model has proven to be a valuable and welcome addition to the region’s existing Internet exchange ecosystem.The DE-CIX model also allows customers the freedom to choose their data centers based on their unique needs, as DE-CIX follows its customers to ensure that service is available in all relevant facilities. Once settled in the data centers of their choosing, customers are just a cross connect away from a rich ecosystem of hundreds of ISPs and carriers.

Manhattan,_New_York2“While many networks are heavily dependent on an oligopoly of transit providers, our customers can take advantage of access to settlement-free peering,” states Frank Orlowski, Chief Marketing Officer at DE-CIX. “Pure transit customers typically do not get an SLA that covers the transit providers’ interconnection to other networks. Our DE-CIX Apollon customers interconnect directly in a quality-controlled environment that is operated by the most experienced Internet exchange engineering in the market.”
