DE-CIX starts Open for Peering in New York City Internet Exchange


New Member
The DE-CIX New York exchange is a carrier- and data center-neutral Internet exchange,

distributed across major carrier hotels and data centers throughout the New York/New Jersey metro.

Initial sites include key locations such as

60 Hudson Street,

111 8th Avenue,

32 Avenue of the Americas,

325 Hudson Street and

165 Halsey Street in Newark, New Jersey.

Additional strategic sites across the region will be added in the near future.

Offering the same resilient service that has successfully served close to 600 networks in its flagship exchange in Frankfurt,

DE-CIX New York expects to be one of the five largest Internet exchanges in the world by 2020.
So DE-CIXs starts the "open peering" in the US. Do you think that this will change the way peering is handled in the US?

“We are creating a truly neutral interconnection ecosystem in all major facilities in this market.

Unlike other players, we will not exclude various data center operators.

How does it being named DE-CIX NY work, though?

As far as I know, those initials stand for Deutschland, odd.

AMS-IX announced the same thing a few days ago too.

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), the world’s leading Internet Exchange operator, announces that its newly-formed subsidiary AMS-IX USA Inc. has reached definitive agreements with Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE: DFT), Sabey Data Centers and 325 Hudson in the New York/New Jersey area to build and operate a distributed Internet Exchange, named AMS-IX New York.

They're all competing. It's time for Equinix to wake up. They won't even talk to you about peering unless you're a customer.

Equinix peering price are crazy. would be good if more and more exchange present at nearby equinix. Give equinix for some pressure on the price.
