Maximize Network Performance and Lower Transport Costs
1623 Farnam customers leverage the hottest trend in network strategies to lower costs and improve performance.
1623 Farnam’s carrier hotel is host to OmahaIX, the most geographically centered Internet Exchange in the U.S. A presence at 1623 Farnam and a peering membership in the exchange connects your network with others to share traffic and routes. Joining OmahaIX allows you to:
- Lower cost of transporting traffic across “third-party” connections (less bandwidth needed)
- Create a central peering point to share your traffic routes and avoid delays of sending traffic to routes outside of the desired location
- Transport traffic for one low cost and stable connection avoiding the tiered approach of upstream ISP providers
- Perform more efficiently through streamlined traffic and fewer AS hops between destinations
Ultimately, connecting your network to peers such as large content companies, internet service providers, communications companies, and government and educational facilities lowers costs, improves network latency and, with less hops, can improve security.
