By Mini Swamy, TMCnet Contributor
TELEHOUSE America, a stable and trusted pioneer of carrier-neutral data center services, has the ability to connect to state-of-the-art peering exchanges providing customers with yet another cost-effective avenue of connecting to other independent networks for the exchange of data and routing information without having to use the overcrowded public networks.
In the latest public peering interconnection, New York International Internet Exchange, NYIIX, expanded into TELEHOUSE (News - Alert) New York Chelsea, taking TELEHOUSE's total tally to five robust peering connections in New York City, which include the other two carrier neutral data centers, located at 25 Broadway in Manhattan, and 7 Teleport Drive on Staten Island, along with 60 Hudson St and 111 8th Avenue. This strategic combination of three state-of-the-art data centers all within the New York market, greatly increased customers' connectivity options for accessing all parts of the globe.
Both exchange platforms are regularly updated to meet the growing technology requirements of the industry. They support IPv4 and IPv6 peering connections and offer standard bilateral peering exchange as well as multilateral peering arrangements.
While TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea, which opened January 24, 2011, provides proximity and convenience to local businesses and access to the city's dense telecommunication network, NYIIX offers fully redundant equipment and fiber connections to the new facility and allows for both public and private peering over Virtual LAN connections.
As the largest public Internet exchange in the New York Metro market, NYIIX is one of the largest neutral Internet exchange points on the US East Coast. It aims to provide the Internet community with a neutral and scalable peering infrastructure and assure reliable connectivity. Currently, it has over 135 active members, and operates via a seamless fabric with a 10Gigabit Ethernet interface speed between the 5 carrier hotels.
In addition to NYIIX, TELEHOUSE America also owns and operates the Los Angeles International Internet Exchange, which serves about 50 members, has a dark fiber connection to One Wilshire.
In a press release, Akio Sugeno, Vice President of Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development said, "Expanding NYIIX into our new carrier neutral data center facility in Chelsea is indicative of TELEHOUSE's steadfast commitment to our customers. We now provide them with yet another cost-effective avenue of connecting to other independent networks for the exchange of data and routing information without having to use crowded public networks."
TELEHOUSE has 38branded data centers in 20 cities throughout Asia, Africa, North America and Europe, delivers continuous, cost-effective operation of network-dependent, IT infrastructure to businesses around the world.
