The New Any2Exchange Service
The updated Any2Exchange service is comprised of new regional exchanges, which have been created on the East and West Coasts. CoreSite’s Boston, New York, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. markets now comprise the Any2East exchange, while its Silicon Valley and Los Angeles markets have been combined to establish the new Any2West exchange.
This regional approach increases the number of autonomous system number (ASN) routes and traffic on an exchange. Potential benefits include decreasing transit costs, improving performance, lowering latency and ultimately improving the end user experience.
In situations where customers have extremely latency-sensitive traffic or other local networking requirements, CoreSite has also implemented border gateway protocol (BGP) communities for the Any2Easy that allows participants to keep their peering traffic within a specific market.
