The Open-IX Edge (OIX-3) Standard process allows data center companies like EdgePresence the opportunity to earn a modern and credible certification that showcases their leading technical and operational standards, while adhering to their goals of promoting and enhancing the future of the Internet and its infrastructure. We could not be more proud to earn this stringent certification as we continue to grow.

Bill Radford — CIO, EdgePresence

Since its inception, OIX has raised the bar on interconnection and ecosystem standards for IXs and data centers, providing a solid framework of best practices for operators. It was important to ensure our third IX in North America, DE-CIX Chicago, achieved its OIX-1 certification along with DE-CIX Dallas and DE-CIX New York, further illustrating our dedication to maintaining the highest standards of interconnection infrastructure.
