The partnership will see the two provide Epsilon’s service providers with direct connectivity to LINX NoVA from Infiny, Epsilon’s on-demand connectivity platform. In addition to allowing service providers to connect to IXPs globally, Infiny also supports remote peering and other services related to voice, data and global cloud connectivity.

Commenting on the partnership, Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO of Epsilon, said: “We are on a mission to make peering at exchange points across the globe simple and efficient. Our partnership with LINX NoVA will give our Service Provider partners access to new peering partners in the US and help them to use peering to deliver an optimised end user experience. LINX NoVA is one of the most unique IXPs in North America and we look forward to collaborating and growing together.”

LINX NoVA is a community owned exchange as part of the London Internet Exchange, it benefits from a growing number of peering partners at it exchange while Epsilon continues to add IXPs to its platform. By using Infiny service providers are now able to connect to LINX NoVA at the click of a button and access these resources.

The new reseller port connection is great news for both LINX NoVA and Epsilon. We continue to develop our channel programme and we fully expect that this will enable us to build momentum for our members as we move into 2018. Epsilon are an established partner with LINX in London and this extension of our partnership to LINX NoVA gives networks a wider choice of ways to reach the exchange for their peering,” added Ben Hedges, CEO of LINX America.  

LINX NoVA’s peering fabric spans three data centre facilities which are CoreSite, Digital Realty and EvoSwitch, all located in the Ashburn area. The three sites are connected by LINX, enabling members at any of these facilities and peer with partners at all LINX NoVA locations.
