Verizon Digital Media Services Expands Network into Additional AMS-IX Internet Exchanges


AMS-IX and Verizon Digital Media Services have announced an agreement to expand Verizon Digital Media Services’ presence from the AMS-IX platform in Amsterdam to all AMS-IX Internet Exchanges in markets where Verizon Digital Media Services already has a presence, beginning with AMS-IX Hong Kong.

“Our partnership with AMS-IX is a demonstration of our commitment to providing a better experience for Internet users around the world,” says Rob Peters, Chief Technology Officer at Verizon Digital Media Services. “With our presence at numerous AMS-IX Internet Exchanges, we are able to provide faster and more reliable services to our customers, ensuring high-quality user experiences on our content delivery network.”

Internet users increasingly demand high-quality content at lightning-fast speeds. As a digital media distribution platform, Verizon Digital Media Services is responding by adding direct local connectivity from its content delivery network to many of the world’s broadband providers, through Internet Exchanges.

The digital economy hinges on collaboration, an integral part of AMS-IX’s strategy. Job Witteman, Chief Executive Officer at AMS-IX, explains: “Verizon Digital Media Services has been a valuable and long-term member of our peering platform in Amsterdam. As a major content delivery network and leader in the digital media space, they bring key content to Internet Exchanges, contributing to their growth and the performance of the Internet in general. Their expansion to other AMS-IX locations shows the trust they have in our business model.”
