Creating True Diversity to LATAM
A Strategic Collaboration between DE-CIX and PIT Chile from NJFX
PIT Chile is interconnecting with DE-CIX directly at NJFX to enable and access the DE-CIX New York fabric.
DE-CIX’s strategic presence at NJFX allows for fewer hops and improved latency in the exchange of traffic between Europe, North America, and LATAM. This results in improved performance and reliability for customers on the DE-CIX platform looking to gain direct connectivity to major business hubs both terrestrially and subsea.
DE-CIX provides premium services through its interconnection platform in multiple carriers and data center-neutral exchanges across the globe. PIT Chile selected DE-CIX New York and their East Coast connectivity hub at NJFX in order to avoid legacy chokepoints.
“For global enterprises, ISPs, CDNs, and network operators, having access to diverse terrestrial and subsea options for connectivity is the coin of the realm, the foundation of their ability to reach new customers and penetrate new markets,” said Felix Seda, General Manager of NJFX
Created in 2016, PIT Chile is the first point of exchange operating in Chile, bringing together Internet providers (ISP) with content providers (CDN), allowing bilateral peering among all its members. PIT Chile is a neutral, public, open, and transparent Internet Exchange Point (IXP) that operates from North to South across multiple cities in Chile. In Santiago, the capital city, PIT Chile has 14 points of presence in the main data centers.
PIT Chile interconnecting with DE-CIX is a perfect example of the peering capabilities also being explored at NJFX for better distribution of eyeball networks in the most efficient and secure manner possible. At NJFX, customers are now able to leverage direct, low-latency routes to major business hubs avoiding legacy East Coast chokepoints such as New York City and Florida. The LATAM market is becoming a focused region for networks to connect from NJFX to DE-CIX New York.
“We are committed to providing the best connectivity for Chile and Latin America. To fulfill that promise, we need to work with the best technology and allies, such as DE-CIX and NJFX. Chile has been recognized for its quality and speed in internet connections, and we think that our role in providing peering capabilities is crucial to these results,” explained Ivan Žilić, CTO of PIT Chile
For LATAM-based network operators, PIT Chile can be used as a blueprint for other providers looking to better exchange traffic with North American and European ISPs at a carrier-neutral connectivity hub.
DE-CIX is the world’s leading Internet Exchange operator and serves over 2,500 network operators, Internet service providers (ISPs), and content providers from more than 100 countries with peering and interconnection services at its more than 40 locations in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and North America.
