DE-CIX Dallas's data centre-neutral internet exchange is now operational at Infomart's Dallas building.
Infomart customers connecting through the BMMR inside the
facility can now avail themselves of DE-CIX's peering and
interconnection services. Infomart is presently offering
this access at no monthly cross-connect fee.
The Infomart Dallas' building meet-me-room
(BMMR) provides customers with fast paths to international
and domestic networks, content, and cloud and ISPs, enabling
connections between more than 75 network carriers and all
colocation customers within the building.
DE-CIX claims to be the first and only carrier-neutral
internet exchange in the Infomart Dallas MMR, connecting dozens
of networks with multiple access points throughout the Dallas
"The DE-CIX Dallas internet exchange has been well-received,
enabling us to activate Infomart Dallas within six months of
initial launch," said Ed d'Agostino, Vice President, DE-CIX
North America Inc. "This expansion allows more networks in
the market to have easy access to our peering and
interconnection fabric. Infomart's BMMR customers are now
just a cross-connect away from all networks connected to DE-CIX
Dallas' distributed peering fabric accessible across multiple
data centres. Additionally, BMMR customers can leverage
DE-CIX's MetroVLAN service for private peering interconnections
throughout the metro area.
"Our vision is to create an open and interconnected
environment at the Infomart," said John Sheputis, President,
Infomart Data Centers. "We are enabling carriers and
customers to further extend their interconnection options.
