AMS-IX Turns to Zayo for its NYC Fiber

January 23rd, 2014 by · Leave a Comment

The European-style peering effort continues to get all its ducks in a row in the US. This morning AMS-IX made its fiber move in its new New York City market, tapping none other than Zayo.

ams-ix-ny-mapZayo will provide both dark fiber and layer 2 connectivity connecting the AMS-IX exchange sites at Digital Realty's location at 111 8th, DuPont Fabros's NJ1 facility in Piscataway, Sabey's facility at 375 Pearl, and the 325 Hudson interconnection facility. Those are the same four facilities they announced initial deployments at in November, and each is clearly intended as a key node in an expanding metro exchange footprint.

Zayo's New York City fiber depth comes largely from the AboveNet purchase, as it was the latter's largest and deepest market. It's probably pretty safe to say that they already had fiber into these locations or soon would have, and thus AMS-IX won't have to wait long for the pipes to be in place if they aren't already.

AMS-IX has plans out in Chicago and in Silicon Valley in the works as well.  In New York they have already signed up Netflix as a customer and IXReach as a reseller.
