A Nap is a Nap is a Nap
Since I have seen a couple NAP annoucements lately, I figured I'd at least tell people about this one. It is called the NY-IIX, or the New York Internation Internet Exchange. It is located in neutral space, not operated or owned by and ISP or any Internet related company. It is operated by a co-lcoation known as Telehouse (http://www.telehouse.com). The switch itself is a Catalyst 5000, with switched 10 or switched 100 ethernet, or switched 100 FDDI. It has some peers in it already, and has the potential for being a very good XP; in the telehouse space alone are decent sized ISPs; us (nac.net), lightning.net, KDD Japan, Internet Initiative Japan, Mindspring, ANS, wisper, etc. (I am not saying they are all in the NAP, but they are in the co-lo, and have the potential to connect to the NAP). If you are interested, try Rick Mataka at 718.355.2500.
