(02/01/2014) North Virginia - LINX NoVA, the first neutral, mutually owned Internet exchange in the Northern Virginia area is now fully operational following two weeks of beta traffic trials. The first networks to connect over the exchange were Leaseweb and IX Reach.
LINX NoVA provides ISPs, content owners and network operators with the ability to peer Internet traffic from a choice of three different physical data centre locations across the NoVA metro area - Ashburn, Reston and Manassas.
LINX CEO John Souter said:
"There has been a lot of attention worldwide for what we're building here. Our members called on LINX to build neutral, member-governed and distributed Internet Exchanges in the most important US markets where IP traffic is exchanged, and that is precisely what we are doing here in northern Virginia."
