TELEHOUSE America's LAIIX Celebrates 10 Years as One of the Top Peering Exchanges on the West Coast

Anniversary Marks Continued Success Across Fast and Secure IPv6 Peering Exchange

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2012) - TELEHOUSE America, the United States' leading provider of dedicated data centers, international Internet exchanges, and managed IT services, announces today the achievement of an important milestone by its Los Angeles International Internet Exchange (LAIIX) as it celebrates its ten-year anniversary. As a major IPv4 and IPv6 peering exchange designed to offer fast, secure network-to-network interconnection points, the LAIIX is a neutral and scalable peering infrastructure for providers of all sizes.

Built on a carrier class, high speed Layer-2 platform, LAIIX offers seamless switching fabrics at two important carrier locations in Los Angeles: 626 Wilshire Blvd. and 1 Wilshire. Internet service providers, carriers and content providers are able to cost effectively exchange IP traffic at speeds up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet, which reduces transit costs and increases overall performance.

"LAIIX serves as a strategic Internet gateway connecting the United States to the Asia Pacific region," states Akio Sugeno, Vice President of Internet Engineering, Operations, and Business Development. "Its fast switching capabilities offer both primary and secondary IP routing options which ensure advanced peering options for transit providers. With the rapid growth of Internet traffic across the globe, LAIIX continues to be a strategic and robust exchange point."

TELEHOUSE America also operates the New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX), which interconnects with LAIIX. In November 2011, NYIIX exceeded an impressive 200 Gigabits of traffic. It offers connectivity through several key buildings in New York including: 111 8th Avenue, 60 Hudson, TELEHOUSE New York Broadway, TELEHOUSE New York Teleport, and TELEHOUSE New York Chelsea.
