DE-CIX North America

Join the largest neutral interconnection ecosystem in North America

DE-CIX's first Internet Exchange in North America was opened in 2014 in New York. In 2016, the second interconnection platform in Dallas opened its gates, followed by Chicago 2020 and Richmond in 2021 and Phoenix in 2022. Together, they form the largest carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem in North America.

More access points than any other Internet Exchange

With its interconnection platforms, DE-CIX brought the European Internet Exchange model to North America. The main difference to existing IXs in the US is that DE-CIX's platforms are distributed over several data centers and offer more access points than other Internet Exchanges. More access points means more opportunities for networks and companies to join, multiplying your interconnection opportunities.

Connect via transport partners

In North America you can also access the DE-CIX platform via our transport partners. Transport partners offer you a very fast time to market as they already have an interconnection to DE-CIX. Once you’ve placed your order with them, they will provision your connection without any additional cross connect costs or third-party fees.
