AMS-IX USA and GlobeNet pen peering partnership

06 October 2015 |


AMS-IX’s US subsidiary, AMS-IX USA, has added its first Brazilian company, GlobeNet, to the AMS-IX USA Partner Program.

The partnership will enable GlobeNet to remotely connect North and Latin American customers to peer with parties on the AMS-IX New York peering platform and enhance their IP service offering.

“With its extensive network reach, GlobeNet serves as a gateway to new US cities as well as South America and Brazil, one of the region’s largest internet markets,” said Job Witteman, AMS-IX CEO. 

“Providing easier access to a neutral, distributed IX such as AMS-IX New York offers GlobeNet customers high-quality IP peering and interconnectivity services, while further enabling the growth of the internet.”

AMS-IX claims to be the first in the world to introduce a Partner Program, which is designed to enable third parties to resell AMS-IX ports wherever they have infrastructure connected to AMS-IX’s US locations: Chicago, New York and San Francisco.

“As the first Brazilian AMS-IX USA Partner, GlobeNet champions the efficient delivery of IP transport, AMS-IX peering ports and reliable support to customers in LATAM as well as in the US,” said Erick W. Contag, president and COO at GlobeNet. 

“Requiring no additional capital investment and enabling lower port capacity on-demand, this partnership allows our customers to cost-effectively expand their network infrastructure and more effectively support their clients’ network requirements.”
