UNIFI-IX is to provide the first 50 ports to the exchange free of charge.
Telehouse has today announced that it has been selected by UNIFI-IX internet exchange to host its services, which includes an exclusive launch offer available immediately across its London Docklands campus.
UNIFI-IX, which was established in 2016, is the latest connectivity provider to join Telehouse’s Carrier-Interconnect service.
Tom Sanders, Managing Director, UNIFI-IX said: “Some of the companies we are talking to already have networks of private circuits interconnecting with multiple international destinations.
“We offer more extensive connectivity on a single integrated network, guaranteed speeds, and our market and technical analysis shows that companies choosing to interconnect with us will make cost savings between 20 and 70 percent, depending on the profile of their network.”
The company is to provide a free offer of the first 50 ports to the exchange, with the network expected to expand over the next 18 month to Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand.
Of the wide selection of companies involved in the Interconnect service, there are a total of 750 carriers, mobile providers, internet exchanges and broadband providers.
Sanders added: “Our new infrastructure will significantly reduce the number of steps needed to interconnect major cloud, internet and content services. This will provide a huge benefit to consumers, who will see an improvement in the performance of their online applications.”
With Telehouse’s Docklands campus identified as one of the most connected sites in the world, the joining of UNIFI-IX is to widely support the company’s plans for future growth.
