DE-CIX to leverage Cologix network in Dallas Infomart

Network-neutral data center Cologix said that Internet exchange operator DE-CIX is available through Cologix´s data center at the Dallas Infomart.

DE-CIX will provide a neutral IP exchange via its public peering fabric to increase performance and reduce cost by keeping Internet traffic local in the South Central US.

Cologix, across two facilities, operates 40,000 SQF of state-of-the-art data center space in the Dallas Infomart at 1950 North Stemmons Freeway. Cologix´s data center provides access to more than 40 networks through its Cologix controlled fiber vault/Meet-Me-Room.

DE-CIX is expected to be ready for service by the end of the first quarter of 2016 and will expand to additional locations across the Dallas-Fort Worth metro region over time.

Cologix provides scalable data center and interconnection solutions from 24 prime interconnection locations across nine North American edge markets.

DE-CIX provides premium Internet exchange (IX) services and operates several carrier-neutral and independent Internet exchanges internationally. Founded in 1995, DE-CIX has established an environment for the bilateral settlement-free exchange of Internet traffic, called peering.
