GlobeNet Announces International Internet Exchange (GNIIX)

Service enables customers to access content from the most relevant Internet exchanges in the world with a local connection

Fort Lauderdale, FL – October 8, 2015 GlobeNet, a wholesale provider of Latin and North America data network services, announces GlobeNet International Internet Exchange (GNIIX), a service that enables customers to access content from the most relevant Internet exchanges in the world with a “local” connection through exchange points. The exchange points facilitate network interconnection through access points and eliminate the need for network providers to rely on third-party networks to exchange traffic.

The new service offers customers access to the world’s largest Internet exchange points (IXPs) through a single port locally, which provides direct and reliable connectivity to Internet exchanges. GNIIX is available at GlobeNet’s cable landing stations, is scalable from 1Gbps to 100 Gbps and features the lowest latency from South America over GlobeNet’s dual ring, self-healing network. GlobeNet’s GNIIX service is customizable to accommodate customers connectivity needs regionally or globally, with access to IXPs in South America, the United States and Europe. The customer-managed service places the control back in the hands of customer companies.

“Our customers look to us for reliable, high performance international connectivity that allows for quick and efficient data access and transport,” states Erick W. Contag, President and Chief Operating Officer of GlobeNet. “GNIIX not only enhances the connectivity options available to our customers, it simplifies the process of connecting to the world’s largest IXPs by eliminating the complexities and extra costs of signing separate agreements with each individual Internet exchange to which they require access.”
