Why TAG?

American Internet Exchange®

American Internet Exchange (AIX), also known as Amerinex®, is a division of TAG that manages our data center colocation facilities, and is a Wireless Internet Services Provider (WISP) to customers in Northern Virginia. With multiple Tier1 global service provider backbone networks connected to our carrier-neutral access points, Amerinex offers scalable business-class data center solutions, server colocation, private cloud services, secure Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), and web hosting services that are connected to the Nexus of the Internet™ through dark fiber and our private 150ft telecommunications tower.  Amerinex has more than a thousand network peering points, and with all the carriers operating out of “Data Center Alley” in Loudoun County, Virginia, businesses can connect directly to the network servicing their customers or distant offices with ultra-fast “Layer 2” Metro Ethernet connections. Step away from a shared cloud environment that places multiple customers at risk and choose our highly secure private cloud environment where your information is safer by operating independently on your own dedicated servers with 24/7 cyber security by our network engineers.
