CyrusOne launches internet exchange in Texas

Infotech Lead America: Global data center services provider CyrusOne (CONE) has unveiled the CyrusOne Texas Internet Exchange (IX), an on-net platform deployed across CyrusOne facilities in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio.

The CyrusOne Texas IX gives customers the flexibility to connect to their own enterprise-owned facilities as well as third-party facilities to engage the whole ecosystem of business partners, content providers, networks, carriers, Internet service providers and Ethernet buyers and sellers

Customers can choose how to build out capacity while transporting large amounts of data—by choosing CyrusOne’s bandwidth marketplace, its Internet Exchange platform, or a cross-connect to cloud services.

The CyrusOne Texas IX enables customers to establish low-latency, multi-point connections between a range of facilities or centers while enjoying all the benefits associated with lower wholesale transit purchase costs and peering with reduced service costs

The CyrusOne Texas IX delivers deep statewide interconnection between all metro-enabled sites within and beyond the CyrusOne facility.

The company used Brocade MLXe Series switches in the construction of the  exchange for reliability. These switches enable 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GigE), and 100-Gigabit Ethernet (100GigE) connections, facilitating huge traffic exchanges at line-rate speeds.

Infinera DTN digital optical platforms offer top-tier data-transfer speed and high performance with rapidly scalable point-to-point transport at up to 2.5-terabit speeds.

CyrusOne Texas IX enables clients to benefit from scalability with nearly unlimited free ports. It enables settlement-free peering, settlement-based peering, and buy/sell traffic exchanges with partners and providers.
