Access Pit Chile at NJFX - Just One Switch Away to Connecting the World

As Our Team Prepares For Capacity LATAM 2023 in Sao Paulo, We Celebrate Pit Chile’s Presence at NJFX!

Founded in 2016, PIT Chile is the first point of exchange operating in Chile, bringing together Internet providers (ISP) with content providers (CDN). This allows bilateral peering among all its members. PIT Chile’s IXP (Internet eXchange Point) offers neutral, public, open, and transparent operating in different Chile cities, from north to south. In Santiago, the capital city, customers can connect to fourteen (14) points of presence in the main data centers. 

The main objective of PIT Chile is to put just “one switch away” between consumers and internet providers. In this way, the Chilean IXP search for continuous growth, incorporating the most significant number of members, whether PITs, ISPs, CDNs, or other institutions such as universities, state bodies, and financial institutions that meet the technical requirements of interconnection. Some of the members of PIT Chile are Microsoft, Google, SpaceX, and the leading ISP providers of Chile, such as Telefónica, VTR, Claro, Entel, WOM, Mundo, and Claro, in addition to some international ISP providers, such as T-Mobile and AT&T.

PIT Chile has one of the highest traffic volumes in the region, ranked the 4th IXP largest in the world in traffic and the second in Latin America, just after Brazil. According to LACNIC measurements, it is also the second-best in the region on response times.

As a sponsor or speaker, the company is always present in regional meetings about technology and connectivity, such as LACNIC events, Global Peering Forum, and International Telecoms Weeks, tracking relevant trends and developments in the industry. PIT Chile also hosts their events: the next one will occur on March 23rd, 2023, in Santiago, Chile.

“For years, connectivity between LATAM and the U.S. has resided through Florida. We are seeing a shift in mentality as more networks look to circumvent potential points of failure. Having one of the largest LATAM-based Internet Exchange presents at NJFX is a perfect example of this,” said Felix Seda, General Manager at NJFX. “Their neutral IX boasts an impressive list of members incorporating PIT’s, ISP’s, CDN’s and other institutions such as universities, state agencies, and financials. We are excited that our ecosystem of networks can now interconnect with PIT Chile at NJFX and become exposed to the entirety of the Chilean market.”
