Internet Exchanges Can Utilize PacketFabric’s SDN Platform to Greatly Increase Their On-Net Footprint Without Heavy Infrastructure Spending
CULVER CITY, Calif., June 27, 2017 – PacketFabric, the highly scalable network-as-a-service platform and a member of the NantWorks ecosystem of companies, today announces it has partnered with multiple internet exchanges (IXs) to extend internet exchange services to anyone on the PacketFabric network. PacketFabric will initially be partnering with multi-metro IXs including AMS-IX and DE-CIX, as well as regional organizations such as IX-Denver and United IX’s Chicago Internet Exchange (ChIX) to kick off its IX extension service.
“We’re very excited about partnering with high-quality internet exchanges,” comments William Charnock, CEO of PacketFabric. “Customers on the PacketFabric platform can now use their port(s) for yet another business function.
