Telehouse NYIIX Consistently Averaging 100 Gbps

TELEHOUSE America's New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) has consistently exceeded the 100 Gbps (gigabits per second) daily traffic volume milestone this year. NYIIX is current averaging approximately 127 Gbps, essentially doubling the traffic volume in under 18 months.

NYIIX, which is one of the largest neutral Internet exchange points on the U.S. East coast, serves about 130 active peering members from around the world.

Located in downtown New York City, NYIIX provides fully redundant equipment and fiber connections to the most popular local carrier hotels: 25 Broadway, 60 Hudson St., and 111 Eighth Ave. in Manhattan, 7 Teleport on Staten Island, and 85 10th Avenue located in the Chelsea District of Manhattan.

"Exceeding 100 gigabits per second of traffic is the result of our continuing ability to increase NYIIX
members along with their increasing traffic volume," says Akio Sugeno, Senior Director of Internet
Engineering and Operations Business Development. "Such an accomplishment proves that NYIIX is one
of the most important IXP's in the United States."http://www.telehouse.com/
