According to a recent study from Cisco, global Internet traffic is expected to increase almost threefold over the next five years. By 2021, global traffic could reach 3.3 ZB. As such, organizations are now searching for ways to improve network performance and reduce operating costs in order to meet this demand.
One company that is working to accomplish this is Epsilon, which recently partnered with TELEHOUSE to provide customers with remote peering connectivity to the New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX). The new partnership will offer flexible, on-demand direct connection to TELEHOUSE’s global and regional data centers as well as to Cloud Service Providers through Epsilon’s Infiny platform. The NYIIX Peering Exchange makes interconnectivity much simpler, while also conserving financial resources and increasing data speeds.
“Our alliance with TELEHOUSE enables us to deliver effective peering solutions that enable customers to expand and improve network reach while saving on their bottom line,” stated Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO of Epsilon. “In addition to reaching NYIIX through our innovative, on-demand connectivity solution, Infiny also provides TELEHOUSE customers with access to a broad suite of on-demand connectivity services, all from a single self-service platform.”
TELEHOUSE users can now procure and manage high quality communications services including Internet and cloud service provider direct connects, port-to-port Ethernet, last mile DIA, SD-WAN and SIP trunking. Epsilon’s global network fabric reaches over 90 Points of Presence (PoPs) in major global interconnection hubs including multiple TELEHOUSE facilities in Paris, New York, and London. Future connections to additional TELEHOUSE sites in Hong Kong, Los Angeles, and Singapore are being planned for 2018.
“We are excited to welcome Epsilon and its customers to NYIIX; the partnership fortifies our ever-growing community and enables TELEHOUSE to continue building a richer peering ecosystem to benefit our customers and partners alike,” explained Akio Sugeno, Vice President, Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development, TELEHOUSE America. “Access to Epsilon’s North American footprint and on-demand connectivity capabilities are key differentiators for TELEHOUSE in the U.S., further reinforcing our facilities’ position as cloud and connectivity enablement hubs.”
