Just a few seconds of downtime cause far-reaching and adverse consequences. So it’s vital to partner with an exchange provider that has the technical wherewithal and experience in delivering critical connectivity services.

TELEHOUSE — the global leader for data centers, international internet exchanges and managed IT services — has no shortage of experience in enterprise connectivity. This year, TELEHOUSE is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its International Peering Exchange in New York.

Founded in 1996, New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) is one of the largest peering exchange points on the U.S. East Coast. Over the last two decades, NYIIX has continuously provided the internet community with peering infrastructure that is neutral and scalable, along with stable and reliable internet connectivity.

NYIIX has been experiencing continuous growth over the last few years. As of right now, the NYIIX membership base exceeds 150 members and peering traffic at NYIIX has been steadily increasing, too. Current traffic is peaking at over 400Gbps and the company has witnessed a growing number of 100G requests from new or existing members.

“Exceeding 400 Gigabits per second of traffic is the result of our continuing ability to increase NYIIX members along with their increasing traffic volume,” explained Akio Sugeno, Vice President, Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development. “Such an accomplishment proves that NYIIX is one of the most important IXPs in the United States.”

Verizon Digital Media Services Chief Network Officer Kyle Okamoto also offered his praise for TELEHOUSE.

“We congratulate TELEHOUSE on this important milestone and are pleased to have further extended our relationship with them, specifically during this significant year,” Okamoto stated. “We look forward to continuing to work with them to meet the rising demand for dependable, quick internet access.”
