EdgeConneX Boosts its Global Interconnection with DE-CIX

According to ‘HowOldIsTheInter.net, the ‘World Wide Web’ is 12,037 days, or just over 32 years old. It was not designed way back then to support the types of data, connectivity, and critical applications that organizations rely upon today. DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator, aims to solve for that and help organizations future-proof and optimize their network infrastructures.

Known for making interconnection easy, DE-CIX expanded its carrier and data center neutral IX platform into multiple EdgeConneX® data centers globally. As the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator, DE-CIX will bring its robust interconnection platform into the EdgeConneX data centers in Phoenix, AZ, Richmond, VA, and Barcelona, Spain. This adds to the existing DE-CIX Munich Internet Exchange presence at the EdgeConneX Munich Edge Data Center

“We’re thrilled to further expand the availability of DE-CIX and grow our connectivity options for customers across our global platform. With many networks, cable operators, CDNs, cloud on-ramps, and internet exchanges available in EdgeConneX, we look forward to continuing to grow our network ecosystems at the Edge with DE-CIX, which operates one of the largest global IX platforms available today in the world.”   Aron Smith, Vice President of Product Management at EdgeConneX

Global interconnection benefits for EdgeConneX customers include:

  • Essential local peering
  • Connectivity to cloud and content providers
  • Greater performance
  • Lower latency
  • Increased resiliency
  • Redundancy  
  • Access to DE-CIX’s GlobePEER Remote solution, which connects North America, Europe, and the Middle East, with access to more than 2100 networks  

“Our Internet Exchanges create an extensive carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem across the globe. These interconnected exchanges offer the lowest latency paths and instant interconnection with thousands of networks around the world, including state-of-the-art interconnection services for both wholesale and enterprise networks of all sizes. EdgeConneX is a trusted partner, both in the United States and worldwide. We’re delighted to expand our presence to more markets with EdgeConneX as we continue to scale our interconnection platform globally.”  – Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International, and Founding Member of IEIC

“This partnership between EdgeConneX and DE-CIX is a great example of how infrastructure companies can, together, improve the resilience of Internet connectivity through geographical distribution, paving the way for connectivity needs of tomorrow’s digital businesses. Joining forces in this way accelerates the digitalization of businesses on a local and global basis, stimulating economic growth and fueling the digital economy.
