NBS (News - Alert), a fully integrated communication services provider and telecom reseller, has become a member of the Telx Internet Peering Exchange from Telx, a provider of interconnection and data center services in North America.
Telx Internet Peering Exchange is considered a vital part of the Telx Interconnection Center family of services. With this membership, NBS offers connectivity with Telx on an advanced Internet exchange, or public peering point that allows ISPs to exchange Internet or VoIP traffic cost-effectively through a shared switch, the company said.
“The Telx Internet Peering Exchange features a centralized Ethernet Switching fabric and infrastructure to enable companies to peer at speeds ranging from 1 Gbps (Gigabit Ethernet) to multiples of 10 Gbps,” said Glenn Calafati, vice president of Interconnection Services for Telx, in a statement. “By joining our exchange NBS can augment its own network and carrier alliances, creating even more choices with a full suite of products and services.”While the public Internet exchange point includes locations nationwide, the New York facility alone is interconnected with the more than 400 other carriers, ISPs, Content Providers and Enterprise Networks that make up the IP Peering fabric.
By joining Telx Internet Peering Exchange, NBS helps their customers’ Internet-connected businesses reduce operational costs, improve network performance, and add network resiliency.Jon Kaufman, CEO, NBS, says connecting to the growing number of content and service providers in the Telx Internet Peering Exchange simplifies complex service level interactions. Additionally it allows them to leverage their continuing investment in IP and broadband technology.
“In our efforts to provide our end users with maximum flexibility, and service value, our Telx partnership allows us to pick and choose the carrier that makes the most sense for a particular application or location,” Kaufman added. “As a result, less investment is needed to interconnect with our carrier partners and we are able to pass that savings along to our customers. Best of all, new carriers can be turned up instantly.”Earlier in May, Telx launched its new cloudXchange connectivity platform. The Telx cloudXchange enables cloud service providers to offer on-demand applications and infrastructure via a distributed, hybrid delivery model.
