New York, May 13, 2015 – Sabey Data Centers, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owners and developers, and AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), one of the world’s leading Internet exchange operators, announced today that AMS-IX New York will use Sabey’s IGX Networks to provide extended cross connects (ECCs) from 375 Pearl Street to both 60 Hudson Street and 32 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.
AMS-IX’s subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc., and Sabey have reached commercial terms and are ready now to accept customer orders.
John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “By leveraging Sabey IGX Networks, Sabey provides ECCs on their private, managed dark fiber network that connects 375 Pearl Street to 60 Hudson Street, 32 Avenue of the Americas and 111 8th Avenue. Networks and carriers in those buildings can connect to Sabey at several meet me rooms in each building.”
Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX, said, “Sabey Data Centers’ IGX Networks is a great opportunity for us to get more value from our point-of-presence at Intergate.Manhattan. This arrangement enables us to improve AMS-IX New York’s accessibility to potential customers and increase its value to existing customers.”
Mr. Sabey added, “By partnering with Sabey Data Centers, AMS-IX will have a very compelling value proposition for networks in both 60 Hudson Street and 32 Avenue of the Americas that they could not reach before. To our benefit, we believe that these same networks will be interested in the space, power and telecom infrastructure that 375 Pearl Street offers.”
AMS-IX launched its New York point-of-presence within Intergate.Manhattan in April, 2014. At the time, it was the only distributed and neutral Open-IX certified Internet exchange in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area.
Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors, and other market parties that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model in the US. The ultimate objective of Open-IX is to reduce interconnection complexity and associated costs in this country, which have been more complex and higher than in Europe, where the preferred Internet exchange model is more common.
