QTS Peering and Data Exchange
There is one area that has suffered from a lack of transformation, and that is how and where internet networks exchange traffic. Very few internet users are on the same network where their desired content “lives”. As such, there is a critically important role for the intermediary who enables internet networks and content networks to exchange traffic -- the user and the content to connect. There are roughly 10 locations in North America where all of these networks exchange traffic. This is the same as it was 20 years ago – and the risk associated with this lack of transformation is steadily increasing.
