Telx Brings the Internet Inside

The Telx Internet Exchange (TIE) allows ISPs, Content Providers, Gaming Providers and Enterprises to quickly and easily exchange IP traffic.

Choice. Telx customers have lots of it. By deploying in a Telx facility, customers are one connection away from hundreds of major telecom and data networks. And for years Telx has brought the internet "inside" its core facilities by giving customers the option to cross connect to many active IP Exchanges operated by other providers in our centers. We will continue to support access to these networks as they are instrumental to our customers' growth. But now Telx provides even more choice to its customers looking for more high quality IP network peering points with our Telx Internet Exchange (TIE) service in Atlanta, Dallas, New York and Phoenix.

The Telx Internet Exchange is a neutral, privately-owned and managed packet and Internet exchange, providing a high performance Internet peering fabric for participants. It allows customers to reduce operating costs by aggregating ISPs, content providers, enterprises and others on a single highly available service platform so that Internet traffic may have direct access to destination networks. The Exchange is designed to eliminate the middleman or transit provider which in turn leads to higher profits to you.

TIE participants can route IP traffic efficiently providing faster, more reliable and lower-latency internet or VoIP access to their customers. We are able to help your Internet-connected business reduce operational costs, improve network performance, and add another layer of network resilience. In addition, Telx offers members not only a world class exchange platform, but also a forum to discuss new ideas and planning for a better Internet.

TIE includes access to a centralized Ethernet Switching fabric and the necessary supporting infrastructure to enable companies to connect and peer at speeds ranging from 1 Gbps (Gigabit Ethernet) to multiples of 10 Gbps. For convenience, standard reporting tools allow TIE members to monitor performance and traffic metrics.

Current Telx customers can connect immediately. Existing customers can establish a connection into a TIE network in the time it takes to install a cross connect in a meet-me-room which is typically less than 48 hours. And new customers simply need to establish a cabinet or cage presence in our facility along with a connection to a nearby meet-me-area xchange centers where TIE ports can be accessed.
