On a mission to expand the Edge of the Internet to provide dynamic content delivery to local-market consumers across the nation and around the world, EdgeConneX® steadily continues towards its goal through its latest partnership with the Massachusetts Internet Exchange (MASS IX). The data center provider and cloud and Internet peering exchange have joined forces to build a new remote MASS IX node into EdgeConneX’s Boston area Edge Data Center® (EDC) located at 22 Linnell Circle in Billerica, Massachusetts. The news comes on the heels of EdgeConneX’s recent announcement to build a Midwest Internet Cooperative Exchange (MICE) node into its Minneapolis EDC at 6875 Shady Oak Road in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
The new MASS IX node will provide EdgeConneX’s Boston-based wireless carrier, service provider, CDN and enterprise customers with a new access point to multiple MASS IX core switches in downtown Boston as well as several of its highest density network sites, and will be available in Q4 of this year. With superior route diversity, ultra-low latency IP connectivity and MASS IX participating network access, EdgeConneX customers will be able to mitigate traffic latency by eliminating unnecessary backhauls to large metros in the Northeast, while simultaneously increasing network performance and security. In addition to ensuring the fastest and most reliable physical delivery of content to Boston consumers, the partnership provides EdgeConneX customers with direct access to a one-stop shop for Internet peering, IP transit, Data Center Interconnect (DCI) and cloud solutions.
A mutually beneficial partnership, EdgeConneX’s Boston EDC also enables MASS IX to extend its presence and offer its suite of connectivity options to the Internet ecosystem. The data center provides the shortest and fastest routes for content delivery to local consumers, enterprises and Internet customers in the Northeast, making it an ideal location for expansion of the MASS IX.
