By deploying in a Digital Realty data center, customers are one connection away from hundreds of major telecom and data networks on a single highly available service platform. The Internet Exchange allows members to establish peering relationships with other members across a common switching platform. Once those peering relationships have been established, members may share traffic without incurring additional IP transit charges. By connecting to the Internet Exchange our customers are able to reduce operational costs, improve network performance and add another layer of network resilience. Port speeds available for our exchange customers range from 1 Gbps to multiple 10 Gbps ports. In some of our core markets 100 Gbps ports are also available. For convenience, standard reporting tools allow members to monitor performance and traffic metrics. Customers can upgrade ports as needed whenever bandwidth requirements change.
