NY Internet Exchange Tops100 Members
May 21st, 2007 By: Rich Miller
The New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX), a carrier-neutral exchange point for New York providers, has experienced solid growth in recent months and now has 104 members. That’s up from 92 members in November 2006, according to Telehouse, which operates the NYIIX in its facility at the 25 Broadway carrier hotel in Manhattan.
The NYIIX is also experiencing higher traffic volume, up from 14 Gbps last year to 23 Gbps this year. NYIIX is equipped with IPv4 and IPv6 protocols, and provides Internet services such as DNS F, I, and J root servers, and an ENUM server for VoIP technologies.
“The growth stems primarily from our strong reputation and large presence,” said Akio Sugeno Director of Internet Engineering. “It has become well known to businesses that if they want exceptional telecommunications services, they want to join Telehouse, and they are.”
Telehouse operates a similar facility in Los Angeles, the LAIIX, at 626 Wilshire Blvd., whose dark fiber connection to the One Wilshire Boulevard carrier hotel offers direct access to all of the carriers at that facility. LAIIX has had increases in traffic (from 1 Gbps to 4 Gbps) and membership (now at 44) within the past year.
