Seamless to DE-CIX Enabled by Transport to Peering from Data Center and Network Edge Locations throughout Texas
NEW YORK, June 7, 2022 – DE-CIX, the world’s leading neutral Internet Exchange (IX) operator, announces it has established an interconnection with LOGIX Fiber Networks (LOGIX) in Dallas. LOGIX Fiber Networks is the largest fiber network provider in Texas serving more than 3,000 enterprise buildings and nearly 100 data centers throughout the state. The NNI enables LOGIX customers to gain turnkey access to DE-CIX Dallas, fortified with extended reach, via the DE-CIX GlobePEER Remote service, to Chicago, New York, Phoenix, Richmond, and to thousands of networks connected across the US and the company’s globally interconnected platforms throughout Europe and the Middle East. The DE-CIX neutral interconnection ecosystem spans North America, Europe, the Middle East, India, and Southeast Asia.
LOGIX Fiber Networks’ footprint spans throughout Texas with key data centers in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and Fort Worth. By interconnecting its network with DE-CIX Dallas, LOGIX customers can now leverage transport connectivity for turnkey access to DE-CIX’s multi-service platform, with direct access to cloud providers, content networks and other network-based service providers. The interconnection serves as a seamless gateway, eliminating third-party connectivity costs in Dallas and traditional colocation requirements, and enables enterprise and wholesale networks direct access to DE-CIX Dallas, the fastest growing neutral IX in the Texas market.
Traditional data center-owned IX’s typically require colocation and cross connection fees that require networks to buy and manage remote equipment, on top of the IX platform fees. With a transport to peering connection offered by LOGIX to reach DE-CIX Dallas, networks can peer in Dallas with only the cost of the LOGIX transport connection, dramatically lowering costs of the peering solution. For networks where a traditional IX interconnection requiring colocation does not make sense, a transport to peering connection can easily become a strong value proposition due to the dramatically lowered cost of the total solution.
“We are always looking for ways to enhance our network services and capabilities, and an interconnection with DE-CIX Dallas does just that,” comments Craig Collins, chief executive officer from LOGIX Fiber Networks. “Through this partnership, LOGIX customers now can leverage our Texas-based transport network to access DE-CIX, helping companies procure the most direct route for connectivity and ultimately enhance performance while streamlining costs.”
“We continue to develop better ways for networks from throughout the region to connect to DE-CIX Dallas,” comments Ed d’Agostino, VP and General Manager of DE-CIX North America. “This partnership with LOGIX is yet another step forward in allowing DE-CIX Dallas to serve the entire region, not just networks with PoPs in Dallas. DE-CIX Dallas provides an array of network optimization and security capabilities for ISPs, content providers, enterprises, educational and research institutions and more. Now enabled through LOGIX, we look forward to welcoming even more networks to our quickly growing ecosystem.”
DE-CIX Dallas is the largest carrier and data center neutral Internet Exchange serving the Southwest region and now ranks among the top 20 largest IXs in the United States with reach to over 110 networks including carriers, ISPs, content, cloud, and other networks that help optimize the delivery of content at the edge.
