DE-CIX New York Consistently Exceeds 1 Terabit of Peak Data Traffic

The market’s leading IX now interconnected with DE-CIX IXs in Chicago, Dallas and Richmond

NEW YORK, February 1, 2022DE-CIX New York, the largest carrier and data center-neutral Internet Exchange (IX) and Open-IX certified Internet Exchange (IX) in New York, announces it is now consistently exceeding 1 Terabit per second (Tbps) peak traffic across its NY/NJ Internet Exchange platform. This announcement is on the heels of the company’s 2021 traffic results, reporting 38 exabytes of data were exchanged across the global DE-CIX Internet Exchanges[1] last year. 38 exabytes is equivalent to the storage capacity of more than 300 million smartphones, each with 128 GB of storage space, or the data volume consumed by the population of a small city if every inhabitant where to spend their entire life watching a video stream in HD quality.

DE-CIX New York, which provides access to more than 250 networks, is currently interconnected with three other DE-CIX IXs across North America, these being Chicago, Dallas, and Richmond, with Phoenix being ready for service by the end of Q1 2022. Furthermore, all of the North American IXs have access to DE-CIX’s global platform (GlobePEER Remote), offering extended reach to over 2000 global networks. Each market provides multi-service interconnection solutions enabling peering (GlobePEER), cloud access (DirectCLOUD), Microsoft Azure Peering Service (MAPS), and various private interconnection solutions including VirtualPNI and Closed User Group connectivity options.

“Neutrality and an open access model is a key contributor to our success, not just in New York but globally,” comments Ed d’Agostino, VP and General Manager of DE-CIX North America. “By partnering with data center and transport network operators, not only are we able to extend access to our platform – now having the most points of presence of any IX throughout the greater New York/New Jersey markets – but also regional networks can readily connect.”

DE-CIX New York customers gain access to local peering solutions, content and cloud providers, and private VLAN solutions through a single port. Leveraging virtual connections, connected networks can reach any other network connected in the local market. Furthermore, access to DE-CIX platforms in Chicago, Dallas and Richmond, Virginia is also available, providing seamless reach to an additional 175+ networks in North America. DE-CIX’s GlobePEER Remote capabilities provide even further reach, to DE-CIX platforms Internationally – where customers can reach over 2,400 networks through a single connection.
