Carrier-neutral colocation provider Telehouse has been selected by the UNIFI-IX Internet Exchange to host its services.

The new exchange was established last year and joins the more than 750 carriers, mobile providers, Internet Exchanges and broadband providers who are part of Telehouse Carrier-Interconnect.

“Our new infrastructure will significantly reduce the number of steps needed to interconnect major cloud, Internet and content services,” Tom Sanders, MD of UNIFI-IX, said. 

“This will provide a huge benefit to consumers, who will see an improvement in the performance of their online applications. Telehouse was the obvious partner for us as they are at the heart of the London digital hub; it was paramount to be included.”

The Internet Exchange came to Dublin last December as part of a €600,000 ($642,060) investment, and plans to expand to Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand over the next 18 months.

Sanders continued: “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 of between 20 and 70 percent, depending on the profile of their network.”

Michelle Reid, sales and marketing director of Telehouse added: “We are delighted to welcome UNIFI-IX to Telehouse Carrier-Interconnect, our London Docklands campus is one of the most connected in the world and we are well positioned to support their future growth with our latest data center Telehouse North Two.”

To promote the fact that it has come to Telehouse, UNIFI-IX is offering the first 50 ports to the exchange free of charge.
