AMS-IX USA Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), says that GlobeNet, a wholesale provider of Latin and North America data network services, has joined its partner program. GlobeNet can now enable its North American and LATAM customers to peer with parties on the AMS-IX New York peering platform.

The AMS-IX USA Partner Program allows third parties to resell AMS-IX ports anywhere they have infrastructure connected to AMS-IX's U.S. locations in Chicago, New York, and the San Francisco Bay Area (see, for example, "AMS-IX USA to open point of presence in Telx's San Francisco data center").

GlobeNet connected its first customer to AMS-IX New York this past February. Its fiber-optic network offers wide coverage in South America, including Colombia, Venezuela, and Brazil, as well as in the U.S. (see, for example, "GlobeNet completes submarine cable system extension to Colombia").

"With its extensive network reach, GlobeNet serves as a gateway to new U.S. cities as well as South America and Brazil, one of the region's largest Internet markets," said Job Witteman, CEO at AMS-IX. "Providing easier access to a neutral, distributed IX such as AMS-IX New York offers GlobeNet customers high-quality IP peering and interconnectivity services, while further enabling the growth of the Internet."
