Cloud, Peering & Data Center Interconnect‐ All in one port.

MASS IX is more than just a peering point. Our carrier grade infrastructure allows you to converge internet, transport and direct connections to cloud providers all through a single Ethernet port.

Service providers can also utilize the MASS IX platform to sell connectivity & network access products to other participants.

Pricing & Sign-Up

Interconnection Services


MASS IX offers interconnection services using the following MEF defined EVC types.
Packetsurge™ Port is required on both A and Z sides to provision an EVC.

E-Line
Ethernet point-to-point EVC, delivered as port-based EPL or vlan-based EVPL.
E-LAN
Multipoint-to-Multipoint EVC, allows you to create a private LAN (i.e. VPLS) between participating EVCs.
E-Tree
Rooted-Multipoint EVC, an E-LAN service with split-horizon. Root nodes can communicate to all nodes; lead nodes can only communicate with roots.

EVC Port Scales


MASS IX does not charge monthly fees on EVCs‐ instead, each purchased port comes with a pack of included EVCs as shown below. If a port has run out of EVC scale, you'll need to upgrade or purchase another port to achieve higher scale.
