05 September 2014 | Kavit Majithia


Data centre company Telehouse has announced that its New York Internet Exchange (NYIIX) has expanded its reach through CoreSite’s capabilities in New York.

The company’s NY2 facility will be available in Secaucus, New Jersey, and marks the availability of the exchange in seven areas across New York and the tri-state area.

Telehouse’s NYIIX is already available in CoreSite’s NY1 facility in Manhattan, and the development means the facility is now accessible across the entire New York market.

Members of NYIIX gain access to global and mainstream ISPs and content providers, in additional to regional ISPs and content providers with network-to-network interconnections.

The low-latency exchange also provides enhanced network performance and improved interconnectivity.

“The expansion of NYIIX into NY2 allows Telehouse to add another important peering location option for its members in one of the newest state-of-the-art facilities in New Jersey,” says Akio Sugeno, VP of Internet Engineering, operations and business development at Telehouse. “NYIIX will continue to evolve and unite the fragmented New York peering market to further promote New York as the largest gateway to North America.”

CoreSite’s NY2 facility opened in December 2013 and is designed to offer a scalable option for network, cloud and enterprises looking to expand at a more competitive total cost in the greater New York metro area.
