New York Internet Exchange Expanded Into New Data Center

The carrier neutral data center and colocation service provider Telehouse America announced that its New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) has been expanded into a new 60,000 square foot data center in New York City. The facility is located in Chelsea at 85 10th Avenue.

The company says that its new facility offers customers five peering connections in New York City, which include carrier neutral data centers located at 25 Broadway in Manhattan, 7 Teleport Drive in Staten Island, 60 Hudson St and 111 8th Avenue telecommunication facility.

The NYIIX has been established in 1996 and since then it is one of the largest neutral Internet exchange points in the United States. It provides a scalable, neutral peering infrastructure and guarantees a reliable and stable Internet connectivity. NYIIX currently has over 135 active members, and operates via a seamless fabric with a 10Gigabit Ethernet interface speed between the five telecommunication facilities and data center hotels mentioned above.

“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”, says Akio Sugeno, vice president of Internet engineering, operations and business development.

Telehouse America also operates Los Angeles International Internet Exchange.
