AMS-IX New York to Use Sabey Data Centers’ IGX Networks to Provide Extended Cross Connects in Manhattan

Sabey Data Centers, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owners and developers, and AMS-IX, one of the world’s leading Internet exchange operators, have announced that AMS-IX New York will use Sabey’s IGX Networks to provide extended cross connects (ECCs) from 375 Pearl Street to both 60 Hudson Street and 32 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.

This arrangement will allow networks and carriers at both carrier hotels to connect to AMS-IX New York at Sabey’s Intergate.Manhattan data center at 375 Pearl Street.

AMS-IX’s subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc., and Sabey have reached commercial terms and are ready now to accept customer orders.

John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “By leveraging Sabey IGX Networks, Sabey provides ECCs on their private, managed dark fiber network that connects 375 Pearl Street to 60 Hudson Street, 32 Avenue of the Americas and 111 8th Avenue. Networks and carriers in those buildings can connect to Sabey at several meet me rooms in each building.”

Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX, said, “Sabey Data Centers’ IGX Networks is a great opportunity for us to get more value from our point-of-presence at Intergate.Manhattan. This arrangement enables us to improve AMS-IX New York’s accessibility to potential customers and increase its value to existing customers.”

Mr. Sabey added, “By partnering with Sabey Data Centers, AMS-IX will have a very compelling value proposition for networks in both 60 Hudson Street and 32 Avenue of the Americas that they could not reach before. To our benefit, we believe that these same networks will be interested in the space, power and telecom infrastructure that 375 Pearl Street offers.”

AMS-IX launched its New York point-of-presence within Intergate.Manhattan in April, 2014. At the time, it was the only distributed and neutral Open-IX certified Internet exchange in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area.

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors, and other market parties that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model in the US. The ultimate objective of Open-IX is to reduce interconnection complexity and associated costs in this country, which have been more complex and higher than in Europe, where the preferred Internet exchange model is more common.

Problem at the AMS-IX platform

Earlier today there was a problem at the AMS-IX platform, which occurred during maintenance activities. The problem has been solved now. As a result of the failure, part of the Internet traffic on our platform was hindered and some websites weren’t accessible. Because our Internet traffic graphs couldn’t be updated during the failure, it seemed as if all Internet traffic was affected, but this wasn’t the case. It is possible that some parties will have to restart their sessions to be fully up and running again.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.


Storing op het AMS-IX platform

Eerder vandaag was er een storing op het AMS-IX platform. Deze storing is ontstaan tijdens onderhoud door onze engineers, en is inmiddels weer hersteld. Door de storing liep een deel van het internetverkeer problemen op en waren sommige websites niet bereikbaar. Door de storing werden onze grafieken met de weergave van het internetverkeer niet geüpdatet; hierdoor leek het alsof al het verkeer was weggevallen. Dit was dus niet het geval. Het is mogelijk dat sommige partijen hun sessies weer moeten opstarten om weer helemaal goed bereikbaar te zijn.

Onze excuses voor het ongemak.

AMS-IX USA Inc. Showcases Chicago Expansion and Market-leading Achievements at ITW 2015

Recently Launched Internet Exchange in Chicago Coincides with ITW 2015 in Chicago May 10-13, 2015

AMS-IX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange, announces its participation at International Telecoms Week (ITW), the annual meeting point for the global wholesale telecommunications community. The AMS-IX global team will be on-site to discuss several market-leading achievements in the U.S., including the growth of its New York and Bay Area exchanges, the addition of a Point of Presence (PoP) in Chicago, IL, and the appointment of Phil Matte as Sales Director of its U.S. subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc. 

AMS-IX New York and AMS-IX Bay Area are displaying strong customer and traffic growth. In the first quarter of 2015, AMS-IX Bay Area has grown over 75 percent compared to December 2014 to over 12 Gbps with the addition of new customers such as Hurricane Electric, Netflix and Sonic.net. During the same time period, AMS-IX New York has grown to over 8 Gbps by onboarding customers such as Hurricane Electric, Pavlov Media and Fastmetrics. More customers are also expected to go live soon.

AMS-IX is the only neutral, OPEN-IX-compliant exchange located in three unique markets across the U.S., including AMS-IX New York, AMS-IX Bay Area and AMS-IX Chicago. Upon achieving OIX-1 certification for its Bay Area and New York platforms in 2014, AMS-IX plans to begin certification proceedings on its Chicago PoP mid-2015. In addition to two of its U.S.-based neutral Internet Exchanges receiving OPEN-IX certifications, the company’s Amsterdam, the Netherlands facility was recently recognized as the first international exchange to be OIX-1 certified.

In addition to its existing Chicago PoPs in CoreSite’s CH1 data center and the CME Group Cermak Hosting Facility, AMS-IX USA Inc. will provide added peering opportunities to the Chicago Internet and technology community by launching a new PoP location inside DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc.’s Chicago 2 (CH2) data center. The new PoP is expected to be live in the third quarter of 2015. AMS-IX Chicago is currently OIX-1-compliant, the third of AMS-IX’s U.S.-based IX platforms to meet the Association’s certification criteria and adhere to Open-IX IXP Standards Committee-derived standards of neutrality, openness, service offering, infrastructure and operations, reducing the complexity that restricts interconnection in fragmented markets.

In an effort to support its developing business in the U.S., AMS-IX appointed a new Sales Director, Phil Matte, as head of sales for its U.S. subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc., on April 21, 2015. In his role, Matte is responsible for driving the growth of AMS-IX USA Inc. by developing sales strategies and leading sales efforts for AMS-IX Bay Area, AMS-IX New York and AMS-IX Chicago.
