The mission of NYIIX is to provide the internet community with a neutral and scalable peering infrastructure, assure reliability and stable internet connectivity.
Established in 1996 and founded by TELEHOUSE, the NYIIX Peering Exchange is one of the largest neutral internet exchange points on the US East Coast and in the world.PEER WITH US
In order for the Internet to work in the manner we are all used to, all those individual carriers, ISPs and network operators need to exchange data, or, put it another way, grant others access to their network. That access is either agreed on a payment basis – for transit/upstream – or on a cost neutral basis, otherwise known as peering.
In order for peering to work efficiently, Internet Exchanges offer a neutral local network where any carrier, ISP or network operator can connect and exchange traffic.
The IX uses switching equipment to build the local network by placing equipment in existing carrier-neutral data centers. For redundancy purposes, it is sometimes housed in more than one location, using dark fiber to interconnect those locations.
