NetIX adds five Internet Exchanges to its ecosystem over the summer
Sofia, Bulgaria – 4th September 2023: NetIX, the leading global distributed platform for award-winning connectivity and peering solutions, has taken advantage of the less intense summer months to improve its Global Internet Exchange (GIX) service by adding five Internet Exchanges (IXs or IXPs) to its peering ecosystem.
In only a few short weeks, NetIX added Netnod, the highly popular IXP based in Sweden with average traffic rates of 1.3Tbps, Piter-IX, a geographically dispersed exchange with over 300 members predominantly in Russia, InterIX, a rapidly growing IXP based in the Netherlands, InterLAN, the largest Romanian interconnection platform with traffic peaks of 400Gbps, and LocIX, the non-profit, open-policy, local IXP for Dusseldorf, Netherlands and Frankfurt.
The addition of these newly connected IXPs to NetIX’s already-extensive list of exchanges will improve its peering services for members by providing a better selection and broader range of ASNs from across the globe.
Members can connect to any of these exchanges directly and appear as if physically present at each exchange via NetIX’s remote peering service or, as part of a bigger peering solution, take a blend of all 30+ IXPs’ worth of traffic using the award-winning Global Internet Exchange (GIX) service, and access 10,000+ ASNs via one port and one cross connect.
"NetIX - whilst global - is incredibly strong in Europe. By adding these five IXPs, NetIX has further improved its connectivity across Europe by enabling more interconnects and therefore resiliency across its network,” commented Dean Belev, VP of Services at NetIX. “Europe is home to many small enterprising companies, and the GIX (Global internet Exchange) lends itself perfectly to companies that are growing and building their presence - accessing over 30 IXPs without the expense of connecting to each one directly saves thousands and countless hours."
Members will be able to greatly improve their network reach simply and efficiently, reduce their latency whilst improving resiliency all without the need for costly buildouts or investment by using NetIX’s network-enhancing solutions.
NetIX has always been a key player in Internet Exchanges and peering enablement, not just by connecting new members and reaching new traffic peaks, but also with regards to supporting users and adding new services they could benefit from. It’s this attitude that helped NetIX earn and secure the prestigious title of “Best Peering Operator of the Year” at the Carrier Community Global Awards in June.
