Telx Launches New Internet Exchanges in New York and Dallas

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 17, 2009) - North American Network Operators Group (NANOG) - Key Highlights:

--  Creates new Telx Internet Exchanges (TIE) in New York and Dallas.
--  Expands existing platform to four cities.
--  Demonstrates Telx's commitment in supporting communication and
    connectivity between carriers, content providers, enterprises, and content
    delivery networks.
    

Telx, one of the largest and fastest growing domestic interconnection and colocation data center operators, announced today that it has launched new Internet Exchanges in the New York and Dallas markets offering customers a new, low-cost, single point of access method to interconnect with multiple carriers, service and content providers, financial exchanges, and enterprise networks.

Telx Internet Exchanges (TIEs) are neutral, privately owned and managed packet and Internet exchanges that provide a high-performance Internet peering platform for participants. TIE members typically reduce their operating costs by aggregating ISPs, content providers, enterprises and others on a single, highly available service platform so that Internet traffic has direct access to destination networks, which eliminates the need for transit and facilitates greater communication between networks.

Telx is solidifying peering capability in the two major, network-rich buildings at 60 Hudson Street and 111 8th Avenue. With more than 400 service provider and enterprise customers located with Telx in these buildings, this new international Internet Exchange gives customers highly reliable and cost-efficient access to all of these service providers and enterprises. Additionally, since most subsea cables either land in New York or in nearby states and are then backhauled to New York, an international Internet Exchange in the region provides the fastest and most direct connection to traffic entering the U.S. from Europe.

In Dallas, a new exchange will give customers a new opportunity to leverage peering within 2323 Bryan and the Telx facility at 8345 Stemmons Freeway.

"Telx is fully committed to providing superior Internet Exchange points within its facilities, and as a result have chosen to launch the next phases of our Internet Exchanges in the New York and Dallas markets," said Michael Lucking, Director of IP Development and Engineering for Telx. "These two markets are currently underserved in terms of high quality Internet Exchange points,. We intend to make New York and Dallas true metropolitan exchanges."

The TIE platforms in New York and Dallas will be monitored around the clock and are now accepting Ethernet connections. The new TIE service will be fully integrated into Telx's product and service portfolio and customers in New York and Dallas now have the ability to purchase one-stop shopping solutions that includes space, power, and interconnectivity between networks as well as interconnectivity to the respective TIE platforms. Telx Internet Exchanges are built on Force 10 equipment; Force 10 is the preferred provider for the company's switching architecture. Telx has existing TIE peering nodes in Atlanta and Phoenix.
