TELEHOUSE Announces IX Anywhere Service

By Anil Sharma, TMCnet Contributor

TELEHOUSE America, a provider of carrier-neutral data centers, international Internet exchanges, and managed IT services, has unveiled IX Anywhere service, offering up to 1Gbps global Ethernet transport solutions to the world's largest international Internet eXchange Points.

Officials with TELEHOUSE (News - Alert) said that to initiate service, companies with network equipment housed in any of the company’s 14 Global Interlink (low-latency, Layer 2 Ethernet) POPs in North America and Europe can now connect to the New York International Internet Exchange and the Los Angeles International Internet Exchange.

Company officials said that in addition, customers utilizing IX Anywhere to connect to NYIIX and LAIIX will not be charged any cross-connect fees when connecting within TELEHOUSE facilities.

According to company officials, IX Anywhere reduces the need for colocation space by allowing customers to connect seamlessly to the IXP of their choosing via the TELEHOUSE-KDDI (News - Alert) demarcation point in the facility where the peering exchange point is housed. TELEHOUSE-KDDI will then order the cross-connection from the demarcation point to the IXP, enabling customers to peer with members, both publicly or privately, as arranged through the preferred IXP.

Company officials said that through IX Anywhere, customers now have access to a much larger list of potential peering partners without needing to colocate in the same facility where the IXP is housed. 

"The launch of IX Anywhere gives TELEHOUSE customers and service partners a simple and cost-effective way to expand their peering potential and access the largest IXPs in the United States, England, France, Japan or any other country where the TELEHOUSE/KDDI's network is accessible, without having to secure colocation in additional facilities," said Akio Sugeno, Sr. director of business development, Internet engineering & operations, TELEHOUSE, in a statement.

Sugeno said that through IX Anywhere, TELEHOUSE enables the company’s data center customers and partners, as well as non-TELEHOUSE facility customers to extend their reach to the most important IXPs around the world, reinforcing global interconnectivity for the community of thousands of prospective peers in many different countries. 

TELEHOUSE owns and operates two of the United States' heavily trafficked IXPs, NYIIX and LAIIX.
