DCX will enhance its interconnection options and provide customers with greater access to DE-CIX’s interconnection platform, enabling direct connectivity to over 300 networks in US and thousands of networks globally. The partnership leverages dense power technology to integrate DE-CIX’s interconnection capabilities directly into DCX’s GY data centre facility in Goodyear, AZ.

This collaboration empowers DCX customers with turnkey access to DE-CIX Phoenix, while extending their reach to 30 DE-CIX IX’s across North America and Europe. This means that the DE-CIX ecosystem of national and international networks internet service providers (ISPs), carriers, content networks, content distribution networks (CDNS), cloud service providers, and enterprises are directly accessible to DCX customers through a simple cross-connect to the DE-CIX platform in the DCX facilities.

“Mission-critical business applications, AI, and cloud-based applications and services all require connectivity optimised for low latency and high bandwidth. The best way to achieve this is with direct interconnection over an IX, otherwise known as ‘peering’,” according to Ed d’Agostino, VP for DE-CIX North America. “The combination of peering and direct cloud connectivity via the DE-CIX platform, together with the unique high density, customizable power offerings of DCX, offers network operators and organisations in and around Phoenix critical advantages in a competitive market.”

DE-CIX Phoenix is commercially managed IX to serve the southwest region. With this partnership, DE-CIX Phoenix will have eight available data centres across the area, making it distributed throughout the market. “The powerful collaboration between DE-CIX and DCX will take us and our customers on an extraordinary journey as we redefine the possibilities of the digital age, driving innovation, connectivity, and transformative business outcomes. Together, we are empowering organisations to unleash the full potential of their data and unlock limitless opportunities in the ever-evolving digital landscape,” concludes George Slessman from DCX.
