A growing number of ISPs, content providers and carriers are now using a strategy called peering, which enables companies to access multiple networks over a single connection. This helps to reduce network costs, increase redundancy and improve performance.
Businesses can gain easy access to high quality peering services by working with a company such as Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), a global organization that recently signed a memorandum of understanding with PacketFabric to interconnect their services.
This new initiative allows AMS-IX Internet Exchanges (IXs) in New York, Chicago and the Bay Area to access PacketFabric’s network technology, enabling access to AMS-IX from 130 more locations on top of the current connectivity methods.
New and existing customers will be able to access AMS-IX Bay Area, Chicago and New York through PacketFabric’s extensive network following a technical implementation in August, 2017.
The AMS-IX platform offers peering and IP interconnection services for all types of network traffic, including VoIP, traditional data, video or mobile traffic. Networks can provide end users — including businesses and consumers — with fast, stable and cost-efficient Internet services using peering.
“AMS-IX has the strategic intent to further grow our presence in the United States,” said Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “Working together and integrating our services with PacketFabric allows customers to interconnect virtually with AMS-IX through a single connection, which is beneficial to our customers as well as to PacketFabric and AMS-IX. Everyone gets the best of all worlds.”
William Charnock, CEO of PacketFabric, also commented on the partnership.
“AMS-IX is a high-quality internet exchange, and we’re very excited to partner with them. Now PacketFabric customers can easily take advantage of all AMS-IX internet exchange services,” commented Charnock. “At the same time, PacketFabric gives AMS-IX a much broader footprint without having to invest in their own infrastructure.”
