DE-CIX expands North American IX Footprint
DE-CIX had added its fifth internet exchange in the US, in Phoenix, Arizona.
The development means that DE-CIX now serves four out of the top five markets in the US – Chicago, Dallas, New York, and now Phoenix – with low latency proximity to the fifth-largest market, Los Angeles, which is less than 5ms from the burgeoning Phoenix market.
After a year of double-digit growth and expansion in 2020, with the addition of DE-CIX multi-service interconnection platforms in Chicago and Richmond, Phoenix will become DE-CIX’s western-most location, fortifying connectivity across the United States while enhancing gateway access between North America, South America, and Europe.
“Phoenix is the new urban technology centre of the western US. As a core hub for data centres, connectivity is robust, with over 60 long-haul, metro fiber telecom, broadband, and wireless networks traversing the market,” said Ivo Ivanov (pictured), CEO of DE-CIX International.
“DE-CIX’s expansion to Phoenix increases our relevance in the North American market, bringing data and interconnection services closer to the users as our locations are now spanning from East to West. We continue to cement our position as the largest carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem in North America and the world.”
