Hosted at Markley’s One Summer Street and Lowell locations, The Boston Internet Exchange provides clients with a unique IP peering network across a proprietary switching fabric.
Allowing for both low and high speed connections, the Boston IX is designed to optimize network performance, reduce latency, and eliminate the unnecessary costs associated with intermediary networks.
The Boston Internet Exchange (BOSIX) is another reason Markley's One Summer Street facility is the ideal location for an organization's transit and data center requirements. Home to tier one and tier two Internet Service Providers, Content Delivery Networks, and the world's largest and most critical of financial, healthcare, academic, government, and technology firms, the BOSIX lowers IP transit costs and improves network performance. By migrating participant traffic to such destinations as Netflix, Facebook, Akamai, Microsoft Office365, and many more off of your Internet connections to a direct peering fabric on the BOSIX, you can alleviate congestion, reduce latency, and make room for critical traffic on otherwise congested uplinks.
See how our rollout of Route Servers & route validation using IRR & RPKI make your BOSIX experience more seamless.
“With our growing use of the Internet, being able to peer directly with the likes of Netflix, Akamai, Microsoft and Apple on the Boston Internet Exchange has been huge for us. For a flat access fee for a 10 gigabit pipe, we avoided having to double our Internet bandwidth.”
