CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a national provider of powerful, network-rich data centers, today announced that it is launching its Open Internet Exchange Hub, which will aggregate the world’s leading communications exchanges, and provide customers with new levels of interconnection and peering opportunities. TELEHOUSE America, a provider of dedicated data centers, international internet exchanges and managed IT services, is expanding its New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) into CoreSite’s data center at 32 Avenue of the Americas, one of New York City’s most connected facilities, resulting in direct access to the building’s meet me room and previously unavailable connectivity and peering options.
As the largest public internet exchange in the New York metro market, the NYIIX enhances connectivity at CoreSite’s 32 Avenue of the Americas data center by natively deploying the peering fabric with redundant equipment and dark fiber. This important addition is part of CoreSite’s larger program to build its Open Internet Exchange Hub, providing direct access to and bringing together internet exchanges from Europe, North America, and other leading global carriers, creating and facilitating global ecosystem communities.
With the expansion, TELEHOUSE America now offers peering networks a new location to join the NYIIX in New York City. Additionally, CoreSite enables an ease of interconnection for all networks at 32 Avenue of the Americas to access the NYIIX, CoreSite’s Any2 Peering Exchange, and the meet me room.
“We are pleased to host NYIIX, New York City’s largest peering exchange in our facility in New York,” stated Eric Bell, General Manager Network and Interconnection at CoreSite. “This expansion will be a critical part of our growing Open Internet Exchange Hub. CoreSite’s network, content and cloud customers depend on us to provide flexible, scalable interconnection solutions and the expansion of NYIIX into our location is an enhancement that will give them new options for interconnecting their networks and building business-critical ecosystems.”
