– Ben Hedges, Chief Marketing Officer, LINX, says:

Achieving success as an Internet Service Provider (ISP) in today’s competitive market requires supplying end-users with ultra-fast connections at the lowest possible rates.  Internet exchange points play a crucial role in facilitating these connections, and in doing so, keep the cost of delivery to a minimum.  They accomplish this by providing the physical infrastructure necessary for ISPs to exchange traffic between themselves and the content networks their users want to reach.  Internet exchange points will, therefore, once again be a hot topic at the upcoming International Telecoms Week (ITW) Conference in Chicago, May 11-14.

One company that will be on hand to showcase its member-owned, distributed Internet Exchange in Northern Virginia (NoVA) will be the London Internet Exchange (LINX). With more than 510 members worldwide, LINX provides direct access to the most up-to-date, optimized infrastructure on the market.  As a result, members experience low latency, advanced control and improved network performance.  LINX NoVA is located across three different physical locations – Ashburn, Reston and Manassas – operated by data center providers DuPont Fabros, CoreSite and EvoSwitch.

LINX was the first Internet exchange point in the world to become Open IX-certified, which means that the LINX exchange conforms to the highest standards for peering, resiliency and security.  Members of the LINX NoVA exchange can be assured that they will receive access to world leading best practice, service and value.
