CyrusOne Interconnection – Peering Exchange

Infinitely Scalable, Always Reliable

CyrusOne's Texas IX utilizes dedicated Layer 2 switches and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) or 802.1Q to enable any customer group or party within a facility to connect with multiple parties both within and outside of the facility.  This BGP-driven process is widely known as peering.

As is widely known, peering is the core operational protocol by which global Internet enterprises hand off traffic to the end autonomous networks via the Internet from multiple physical locations worldwide.  Peering virtually eliminates geographic boundaries and network confinements associated with data exchange and expands cloud platform viability and cost-effectiveness. 

Delivering a full range of configurations

CyrusOne's interconnection platform enables a full range of infinitely scalable peering configurations and protocols, including:

  • Settlement-free exchange
  • Settlement-based exchange
  • Buy/Sell exchange

With low cost ports at all enabled locations and a network powered by Brocade MLXe Switches at 10 GigE and 100 GigE speeds, CyrusOne's Peering Exchange provides best-in-class switching/cross connection at either partial or full IP transit, and at the lowest transit purchase costs available.

Lowering connectivity costs and enhancing performance

Bringing the core of the Internet and the content served by it closer to the Enterprise is one of the primary goals of the Texas IX. Costs will be reduced and performance will be greatly enhanced with this direct access for the Enterprise including one-hop connectivity into the largest clouds on the web.
