DE-CIX, the world’s leading neutral Internet Exchange (IX) operator, has announced an interconnection with LOGIX Fiber Networks (LOGIX), located in Dallas, Texas. Serving more than 3,000 enterprise buildings and nearly 100 data centers throughout the state, LOGIX is the largest fiber network provider in Texas. The partnership provides LOGIX customers with turnkey access to DE-CIX Dallas plus additional extended reach, via the DE-CIX GlobePEER Remote service. Network locations include Chicago, New York, Phoenix, Richmond, and thousands of other connected networks across the US along with the company’s globally interconnected platforms throughout Europe and the Middle East.

LOGIX Fiber Networks has made a notable impact throughout the Texas telecommunications scene with key data centers in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and Fort Worth. Through this partnership LOGIX customers have the opportunity to leverage transport connectivity for turnkey access to DE-CIX’s multi-service platform. While traditional data center-owned IX’s typically require extensive colocation and cross connection fees, a transport to peering connection, offered by LOGIX to reach DE-CIX Dallas networks, can peer in Dallas with only the cost of the LOGIX transport connection. Texans will now have the benefit of dramatically lowered costs of the peering solution while still being a part of the fastest growing neutral IX.
