From its inception in the 1990s, AMS-IX has enjoyed an excellent reputation of being the peering platform to connect to in Europe; with this growing popularity, it was clear AMS-IX was going to expand into new markets. In 2013, AMS-IX New York launched, and Console Network Solutions became the first reseller of its peering services.
“We are very pleased that IX Reach (Console Network Solutions) has also joined our Partner Program in the USA”, says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “With IX Reach (Console Network Solutions) joining AMS-IX New York, we have managed to engage with a valuable player. They have a very extended network in the USA, which makes it easier for parties outside of New York to connect to AMS-IX New York.”
AMS-IX New York is designed on AMS-IX’s successful and proven European business model. Moreover, it is the only Open-IX certified Internet exchange in the New York/New Jersey area. The partnership enables Console Network Solutions to remotely connect parties to peer at the exchange and enhance their IP service offering on the East coast.
Access switches to the AMS-IX New York/New Jersey peering platform are located in the following data centers – however, as with all our Internet Exchange partners, through Console Network Solutions’ virtual interconnection and peering service, any IXP partner can be reached by connecting your network to any Console Network Solutions PoP.
