Premium interconnection in the US
Bringing the European Internet Exchange model to the US
With its interconnection platforms, DE-CIX exports the European Internet Exchange model to North America. The main difference to existing IXs in the US: DE-CIX's platforms are distributed over several data centers and offer more access points than other IXs. More access points means more opportunities for networks to join; this multiplies interconnection opportunities.
DE-CIX North America
Both DE-CIX New York and DE-CIX Dallas are operated by DE-CIX North America Inc. The company was created to actively pursue the establishment of independent Internet Exchanges on the North American continent.
