We had finally finished configuration of our Any2 California router and circuits on Friday and today have turned up our first peers at that location. Any2 is one of the larger Internet exchanged in the US, with roughly 200 members, and extends between multiple Coresite owned facilities throughout California, including 55 S Market in San Jose, where our POP is, and One Wilshire in Los Angeles. This peering point should allow us to further extend our network reach, especially in the Southwestern US, Asia, and Australia, and increasing overall network performance to users in those regions.
One day in, we already have several peering sessions turned up, including sessions to Los Nettos, the network provider for USC, the California Insitute of Technology, and other education/research institutions in the Los Angeles area, Atlantic Metro Communications, a nationwide network service provider that we already peer with in Chicago and New York, Ygnition, a privately owned cable television, phone, and Internet provider, GTA Teleguam, a full service communications company based in Guam, and Transtelco, a telecommunications provider in the American Southwest and Northern Mexico. There are several sessions with other smaller providers as well. We feel we're off to a good start and look to add dozens of new peering partners over the coming weeks.
If you are looking to peer with Steadfast Networks at any of our many peering points, ChIX, Equinix Chicago, Equinix Ashburn, NYIIX, PAIX New York, PAIX Palo Alto, Any2 California, LINX, and AMS-IX, please look over our peering policy.
