AMS-IX New York Connects With Zayo
BOULDER, Colo. -- International Bandwidth Infrastructure provider Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), has been selected by the AMS-IX USA Inc. to supply fibre connectivity between the multiple data centres in the United States where AMS-IX New York operates its Internet peering platform. The U.S. exchange platform builds on AMS-IX’s Internet Exchange model in Europe, allowing multiple Internet service providers, content owners, cloud companies, and other Internet-related companies to efficiently and cost-effectively interconnect via an open peering fabric.
Zayo will provide dark fibre and Layer 2 connectivity for Internet Exchange customers using the Digital Realty data center in New York (111 8th St., Manhattan), DuPont Fabros Technology’s NJ1 data center in New Jersey (101 Possumtown Rd., Piscataway), Sabey Data Centers (375 Pearl St., Manhattan), and the 325 Hudson interconnection facility. Zayo’s fibre network will allow AMS-IX New York to have a direct flow of traffic between its major peering points of presence, with the fewer network hops supporting faster transportation of data.
