Bridge IX enables content delivery networks, internet service providers, enterprises, and hyperscale cloud providers to interconnect or “peer” directly with each other. By peering, these entities get direct access to the networks they need with the added benefits of improved network performance, increased resiliency, and reduced connectivity costs.
As the first public IX in South Carolina, DartPoints’ Bridge IX gives local businesses, schools, content providers, carriers, and government institutions the ability to support local communities and exchange data within the state. DartPoints
