Our interconnection ecosystem is getting bigger. In December we announced two new Internet Exchanges in the US, Chicago and Richmond. Together with Dallas and New York, our four interconnected exchanges offer a low latency path between the cities – and an instant interconnection with hundreds of networks in North America and beyond. At DE-CIX New York, we are also happy to announce a new enabled site at Iron Mountain's NJE-1 data center.
Elsewhere in the world, UAE-IX is extending its presence to new data centers in the United Arab Emirates, and at DE-CIX Madrid, we are getting a new /23 network which means that existing customers need to renumber.
For the unusual year 2020, we have put together some key DE-CIX numbers. You can also read about Dr. Thomas King's predictions for the Internet in 2021. And if you missed out on our interconnection summits, you can watch the recordings from Madrid and North America – featuring interviews with FREE NOW, Hilton, Gartner, and many more.
Hope you had a good start to the new year and enjoy the newsletter!
Chicago – a core interconnection point in North America
We are fully operational in Chicago and first networks are already connected. Distributed over multiple data centers, DE-CIX Chicago offers easy access to our peering and cloud services, and you can reach other DE-CIX locations. See who is already connected.
Connect in Richmond, VA
Announced at the end of last year, Richmond is our 27th exchange and fourth one in the US. Get connected in Richmond and access a variety of interconnection services, reach other DE-CIX locations and more ASNs, and enjoy increased redundancy and resilience. Find out more.
New enabled site at DE-CIX New York

Renumbering at DE-CIX Madrid
To accommodate the growth at DE-CIX Madrid, we have acquired a new address range, a /23 network. Therefore, all existing customers will have to change their router’s IPv4 address. Find out more.
