DE-CIX Dallas Now Ranks Among the Top 20 IXs in the U.S.

Dallas, 28 October 2019: DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator with the largest IX in the NY metro area, DE-CIX New York, announces that its DE-CIX Dallas exchange now ranks among the top 20 IXs across the United States based on the number of networks connected as indicated on PeeringDB. DE-CIX Dallas is the largest Open-IX certified and first data center-neutral Internet Exchange in Dallas. DE-CIX Dallas offers access to networks with a point of presence (PoP) in the Dallas market via a variety of data center providers, including Cologix, CyrusOne, DataBank, Digital Realty, Equinix, Flexential, QTS and zColo. Companies not located in these colocation or data center facilities can also connect to DE-CIX through a transport connection.   

As a neutral exchange, DE-CIX Dallas does not require local colocation. DE-CIX allows networks that don’t have a Dallas PoP to connect via transport. As such, DE-CIX Dallas not only serves the local Dallas market with its strong data center reach, it also serves the entire region. Networks located in neighboring states and throughout Texas, including Mexican networks in South Texas data centers, can take transport connections to DE-CIX Dallas. Furthermore, DE-CIX has developed arrangements with various partners to eliminate cross-connect fees for companies leveraging transport connections to DE-CIX Dallas, including Consolidated Communications, PacketFabric, Telia, Unite Private Networks, and partner/reseller Telxius. DE-CIX continues to reduce overall costs for networks utilizing its Dallas neutral IX across a growing range of market segments. 

“We are thrilled that our Dallas exchange has reached the echelon of being among the top 20 IXs in the U.S. in under three years from its initial launch,” comments Ed d’Agostino, Vice President and General Manager, DE-CIX North America. “This growth, combined with the fact that the New York IX is also among the nation’s top five, serves as a testament to the success of our neutral approach and our model’s ability to seamlessly serve and support a market’s requirements. We’re proud to be empowering the Dallas area and its surrounding region with improved network performance, and we will continue to deliver on our promise of bringing top-tier solutions to a growing number of providers.” 

DE-CIX North America also operates DE-CIX New York, the region's largest neutral IX and one of the top five IXs in the U.S., which features access to over 200 networks through a single connection.
