DE-CIX New York Wins Best of Manhattan Award

DE-CIX recognized for quality marketing of its Internet Exchange during the pandemic

Manhatten, 28 April 2021: DE-CIX, the world’s leading carrier and data center neutral Internet Exchange (IX) operator, announces that DE-CIX New York, the largest IX in the New York and New Jersey metro markets, received recognition by the Best of Manhattan Awards for the company’s quality marketing efforts during the pandemic. The Best of Manhattan Awards selected DE-CIX New York for “their ability to use various marketing methods to grow their business in spite of difficult economic times.”

The annual Best of Manhattan Award Program honors the best local businesses for their accomplishments and achievements, particularly measuring business growth. The program works with local business owners, professional associations, and marketing groups who contribute to the US Economy, recognizing their commitment to customer service and community involvement. The award is presented to companies that “implement programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.”

“We are honored to be recognized for the ability to adapt during difficult times, as we focused on celebrating our partner and community successes to bring the industry together, virtually,” comments Stephan Rohloff, CMO for DE-CIX. “A key driver for these efforts was our North American Virtual Summit, a virtual, video-based program we hosted in December 2020. The summit was a holistic compilation of our North American services, partnerships and expanding capabilities, forming a foundational point to announce the addition of two new multi-service IX locations in the US – Chicago and Richmond.”

DE-CIX North America is a wholly-owned subsidiary of DE-CIX and operates four IXs including Chicago, Dallas, New York, and Richmond. The company’s multi-service platform offers companies a world of interconnection solutions including peering (GlobePEER), cloud connectivity (DirectCLOUD), and the Microsoft Azure Peering Service for one-hop access to Microsoft business services including 365. DE-CIX’s global IXs in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia together form the world’s largest neutral interconnection ecosystem, with more than 2,200 networks connected. With DE-CIX’s expansion in North America, the company now also operates the largest carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem in the US.
