NetIX Communications - The BEST Internet Exchange announced at the 14th annual Global Carrier Awards 2018 in London
On October 24, 2018 NetIX Communications won the first prize in the category “Best Internet Exchange” at the largest telecommunication industry event – Global Carrier Awards 2018. The Awards were handed out at a gala dinner by Capacity Media CEO Rosalind Irving and Capacity Editor-in-Chief and head judge for the GCAs Jason McGee-Abe. NetIX was shortlisted together with two other Exchange platforms among 542 other IXP's worldwide. Given the 20+ years background of the other big exchange platforms, NetIX has been providing its services to the market for less than 6 years. Still, NetIX has the widest network coverage and the biggest number of directly visible peers.
„The award comes as a proof for the built trust in our platform, which grows constantly and provides new features and capabilities for our members and partners,” comments after the award ceremony Dean Belev, VP Services at NetIX.
For the past year, since its previous nomination in the same category, NetIX followed a successful business development process and had remarkable achievements – opening 5 new PoPs in 5 different markets, creating 3 new local IXP instances, introducing crypto currency payments, developing new services such as access to transit traffic, direct to cloud, TV/Audio multicast distribution and DDoS protection.
NetIX provides a platform where content creators and users connect faster, cheaper, and more directly than ever. The NetIX network currently connects 20+ IXPs, serves more than 100 members, reaching nearly 4000 direct peers in 28 data centers, delivering more than 400 Gbps of traffic.
