CoreSite owns and operates the Any2Exchange® for internet peering. With 400+ members—over 250 of which are connected in California—it is the second largest internet exchange in the United States and the largest internet exchange on the West Coast.
Regional exchanges have been created on the East and West Coasts to enable participants from multiple markets to seamlessly peer with each other. Together, the Boston, New York and Northern Virginia markets create the Any2 East exchange, while the Silicon Valley and Los Angeles markets are combined to create the Any2 West exchange.
CoreSite provides direct access to Any2Exchange® switches from all of our data centers. Most of our switch fabrics feature a dual-core, dual-edge architecture for increased reliability and improved network disaster recovery configuration. Connections can be made over a variety of speeds, including 1Gbps and 10Gbps, as well as 100Gbps in select locations.
To take advantage of the opportunities afforded by the Any2Exchange® for internet peering, customers must order an interconnection with CoreSite and separately negotiate a peering agreement directly with their network(s) of choice. A separate connection to the internet is encouraged and a registered Autonomous System Number (ASN) from a regional internet registry such as ARIN or RIPE is required to peer on the Any2Exchange® for internet peering.Sign up
