Megaport announces alliance with AMS-IX

Network interconnection as a service provider strikes agreement with the Amsterdam Internet Exchange

Megaport has announced an agreement with the Amsterdam Internet Exchange to offer expanded interconnection options for the two organisations’ customers.

Megaport’s US subsidiary entered into the agreement with AMS-IX.

“AMS-IX has a long history of building critical mass of peering partners on their Internet Exchanges,” Megaport CEO Denver Maddux said in a statement.

“They operate one of the largest Internet Exchanges in the world. Connecting the AMS-IX and Megaport fabrics creates greater opportunities for Internet peers to reach desired content, cloud services and end-user networks.”

“Building on Megaport's drive to deliver elastic connectivity globally, AMS-IX is excited to partner and expand our independent and distributed peering model as well as boosting the AMS-IX brand globally,” AMS-IX CEO Job Witteman said.

In an ASX statement Megaport said that it and AMS-IX will begin offering services to each other’s customers in Chicago, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Hong Kong.

Megaport in July last year announced its $10 million expansion to US, after launching services in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Megaport was admitted to the ASX in December under the stock symbol MP1.
