The Two Industry Leading Companies Will Work Together to Ensure Longevity for Internet Exchanges
NEW YORK – TELEHOUSE, a global leader for data centers, international Internet exchanges and managed IT services, today announced the formation of a long-term plan with Verizon Digital Media Services, the next-generation digital media platform, to build out Internet Exchange points.
Verizon Digital Media Services is already a member in TELEHOUSE's LAIIX and NYIIX, and plans to participate in potential future TELEHOUSE Internet Exchange points.
"Working with TELEHOUSE will enable us to further expand our content delivery network presence," said Verizon Digital Media Services' Chief Technology Officer Rob Peters. "Together, we will augment both scale and network performance, to successfully meet the increasing consumer demand for quick, reliable access to online content."
"As a true global leader in the digital media supply chain market, having Verizon Digital Media Services at all TELEHOUSE's Internet Exchange Points gives tremendous value to our organization and its peering members. I strongly encourage any network to join NYIIX or LAIIX and publicly peer with Verizon Digital Media Services," said Akio Sugeno, VP of Internet Engineering, Operations and Business Development.
Verizon Digital Media Services is part of AOL, a Verizon Communications, Inc. company, and has an open peering policy. Through an array of industry leading e-commerce, security and OTT products, Verizon Digital Media Services enables leading content creators, publishers, broadcasters and enterprises to securely and profitably deliver their content to audiences anytime, anywhere, on any device.
