An industry-leading Internet peering exchange

The CoreSite Any2 Exchange® for Internet peering is owned and operated by CoreSite. With nearly 500 members -- almost 400 of which are connected in California – Any2 is the second largest Internet exchange in the United States and the largest Internet exchange on the West Coast . CoreSite provides direct access to Any2 switches from any of our data centers, with regional exchanges accessible in California and the Northeast. Most of our switch fabrics feature a dual-core, dual-edge setup for increased reliability and improved network disaster recovery configuration.

The details

Any2 is a physical network switch that facilitates the exchange of Internet traffic between Internet Service providers (ISPs) and content networks. The service fully supports and encourages the use of IPv6 peering. Any2 participants can connect over a variety of speeds, including 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps.

To take advantage of Any2, you’ll need to negotiate peering agreements directly with the network(s) and order your interconnection from CoreSite—and then you can begin exchanging IP traffic locally and internationally. You must be connected to the global Internet and have a registered Autonomous System (AS) Number from a regional Internet registry such as ARIN or RIPE to peer on Any2.
