LONDON, January 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Telehouse, a leading global provider of data centre services, announces today that it has been selected by UNIFI-IX a new internet exchange, to host its services including an exclusive launch offer available immediately across the London Docklands campus.
UNIFI-IX was established in 2016 with the objective of creating a global network, enabling the exchange of traffic to be either local or global with a single port of entry to the exchange. Alternatively, members can create private VLAN's across the network regardless of geographical location. UNIFI-IX is the latest connectivity provider to join Telehouse Carrier-Interconnect, which comprises of more than 750 Carriers, Mobile providers, Internet Exchanges and broadband providers.
Tom Sanders, Managing Director of UNIFI-IX commented, "Our new infrastructure will significantly reduce the number of steps needed to interconnect major cloud, internet and content services. This will provide a huge benefit to consumers, who will see an improvement in the performance of their online applications. Telehouse was the obvious partner for us as they are at the heart of the London digital hub; it was paramount to be included.
Tom continues "Some of the companies we are talking to already have networks of private circuits interconnecting with multiple international destinations. We offer more extensive connectivity on a single integrated network, guaranteed speeds, and our market and technical analysis shows that companies choosing to interconnect with us will make cost savings of between 20 and 70 percent, depending on the profile of their network."
UNIFI-IX is offering the first 50 ports to the exchange free of charge, and with ambitious growth plans over the next 18 months the network will expand to Paris, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand.
Michelle Reid, Sales and Marketing Director of Telehouse states, "We are delighted to welcome UNIFI-IX to Telehouse Carrier-Interconnect, our London Docklands campus is one of the most connected in the world and we are well positioned to support their future growth with our latest data centre, Telehouse North Two."
