Bridge IXTM Is Taking Over the Edge
The Efficient Way to Exchange Data
The First Public IX in South Carolina
As the first IX in South Carolina, DartPoints’ Bridge IX gives local businesses, schools, content providers, carriers, and government institutions the ability to support local communities and exchange data within the state. DartPoints‘ mission is to foster and grow the local communities network ecosystem with our IXPs by providing a vendor neutral and scalable peering infrastructure that creates and encourages partnership opportunities for all of its participants.

What Is Peering & How Will It Benefit Me?
In order for the Internet to work, data must be exchanged between networks and organizations, like Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), enterprises and educational establishments. Typically this takes place via transit, where an end user pays another, larger, network operator to carry the traffic they need. Peering, on the other hand, allows these organizations to exchange their data directly at an Internet Exchange Point (IXP), such as one of DartPoints’ Bridge IX locations. By peering at an IXP, network operators avoid expensive transit prices (thereby lowering connectivity costs), reduce latency, increase throughput, and improve stability.
DartPoints is once again evolving the edge with our Digital Next strategy. Digital Next combines hybrid cloud and digital infrastructure with Bridge IX and Liquid Edge℠, the company’s edge high-performance computing, or HPC offerings. Digital Next is enabling edge ecosystems for enterprises, carriers, and cloud and content providers.
