CoreSite customers to have direct access to the BBIX peering exchange through the CoreSite Any2Exchange® in Los Angeles

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 11, 2016-- CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center and interconnection solutions across the U.S., today announced that it has formed a relationship with BBIX, Japan’s leading carrier-neutral internet exchange based in Tokyo. This newly established relationship will provide CoreSite customers with direct access to the BBIX peering exchange from CoreSite’s Any2Exchange® in Los Angeles.

Owned and operated by CoreSite, the Any2Exchange for Internet peering is the second largest peering exchange in the United States and is available from any of CoreSite’s 17 operating data center locations. Peering at internet exchanges allows organizations to directly connect their internet infrastructure resulting in reduced IP-transit and network costs, as well as enhanced end-to-end network performance, speed and reliability.

Providing CoreSite customers in Los Angeles with direct access to the BBIX peering exchange via the Any2Exchange allows customers to extend their network connectivity with a single secure and reliable connection. In addition to BBIX, CoreSite offers connectivity to some of the world’s top Internet exchanges – including AMS-IX, NYIIX, DE-CIX, and LINX – providing customers interconnection and peering opportunities through simple, direct connections.

"We are focused on bringing expanded solutions to our customer base that increase interconnection options and enhance performance, while reducing network costs," stated Brian Warren, Senior Vice President of Engineering and Product at CoreSite. "By offering connectivity to BBIX, we provide our customers with secure and reliable access to one of Asia’s leading internet exchanges.”

"BBIX is the first Japanese Internet Exchange to extend its node to the United States. Connecting CoreSite’s Any2Exchange with the BBIX exchange brings an alternative connectivity option for customers who want to peer between Japan and the U.S. West Coast market," stated Michikazu Fukuchi, Executive Vice President and COO at BBIX. "Previously, the only peering option for large Asian networks was to peer directly with other global carriers in the U.S. This collaboration with CoreSite provides a true global peering option to all BBIX customers. I believe this will become the new standard for peering in Asia."
