JPIX, the Largest Internet Exchange in Japan, Extends Peering Fabric to Equinix Tokyo Data Center

Partnership Allows Both Companies to Further Enhance Their Traffic Exchange Services

Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq:EQIX), the leading global provider of network-neutral data centers and Internet exchange services, and Japan Internet Exchange Co. Ltd. (JPIX), the largest Internet exchange in Japan, today announced that JPIX has extended its peering fabric to the Equinix Tokyo-2 (TY2) Internet Business Exchange (IBX®) data center located in Shinagawa. As a part of the agreement, Equinix customers will be able to directly exchange traffic, or peer, with JPIXs diverse aggregation of Internet service providers, cable TV service providers and content providers, allowing high-quality traffic exchange participants to increase reliability, improve performance and reduce the costs of network traffic exchange.

JPIX, with over 100 customers, including Japans Tier-1 ISPs, cable TV service providers and content providers, is a strategic exchange point for Internet traffic in Japan. Through this agreement, JPIX will set up an Internet Exchange (IX) switch at the Equinix TY2 center, and it will use Equinixs IBXLink service to directly connect to the Equinix TY1 center located in Heiwajima.

Equinix is the global leader in interconnection and peering, offering high-performance private and public peering services. The peering relationships facilitated by Equinixs interconnection solutions help form the strategic foundation for the growth of the Internet, from email to video to virtually any other application that must traverse multiple networks to get from origin to destination.

As the leading advocate of peering in Asia since 2002 Equinix has been actively encouraging peering relationships between international and Japanese customers by providing innovative services and organizing forums that foster greater interaction, said David Wilkinson, Managing Director of Equinix Japan. This partnership with JPIX is a milestone that enhances the peering fabric for both companies, allowing customers the ability to further scale their peering relationships with a larger aggregation of ISPs, content providers and content delivery networks.
