15 November 2017 | Jason McGee-Abe


DE-CIX New York has increased capacity and added 100G connectivity to CoreSite Realty’s NY1 data centre in Manhattan, increasing interconnection opportunities across its campus.

This increased capacity and enhanced connectivity was deployed to sustain the growing demand of customers connecting to the DE-CIX metro area exchange for peering and Layer 2 connectivity solutions.

“DE-CIX is committed to growing its partnership with CoreSite and the expansion of our presence at CoreSite's NY1 data centre will extend connectivity options for their customers,” said Ed d'Agostino, GM and vice president of DE-CIX North America. 

“Now CoreSite customers in New York and New Jersey gain enhanced access to our world-class peering exchange and connectivity platform, enabling companies to connect to more than 700 networks serving the New York metro area, Western and Central Europe, and beyond through a single port. In aggregate, we are delivering a single port solution that no other exchange company in the US market can offer today.”

With a switch already deployed at CoreSite’s NY2 data centre in Secaucus, New Jersey, DE-CIX said it is committed to providing customers with network delivery across a single port reaching over 150 unique networks in the market.

Now enabled with a 100G connection, CoreSite’s NY1 facility offers customers a greater opportunity to reach global networks within the New York metro market and to DE-CIX’s global leading platform in Frankfurt.

Ben Green, vice president of sales, network and mobility at CoreSite, added: “Our partnership with DE-CIX continues to drive substantial business opportunities for our customers in the New York / New Jersey market. The DE-CIX upgrade at NY1 is proof of the exploding adoption and traction of their peering and Layer 2 connectivity solutions. CoreSite’s NY1 and NY2 data centres have one of the most dynamic interconnection fabrics in the region, and we are well positioned to continue to capture our share of the growth.” 

CoreSite's network-dense, cloud-enabled New York campus, which hosts over 40 network service providers, includes two data centre facilities — NY1, comprised of over 48,000 sq ft of data centre space in the heart of Manhattan, and NY2, with over 236,000 sq ft of data centre space situated above the 500-year floodplain in Secaucus, NJ.

Last month, DE-CIX North America teamed up with DataBank to deliver peering and Layer 2 connectivity across three facilities in downtown Dallas (DFW 1), Richardson (DFW 2), and Plano (DFW 3), Texas

DE-CIX had previously partnered with PacketFabric to expand end user access by launching 100Gbps interconnections into DE-CIX’s North American platforms.
