NetIX adds three more IXPs to its network to improve its global presence
Sofia, Bulgaria – 14th August 2023: NetIX, the leading global distributed platform for award-winning connectivity and peering solutions, has today announced the addition of three more Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) to its list of connected exchanges improving its peering services for its members and providing a better selection of ASNs from across the globe.
NetIX has 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, and InterIX, a rapidly growing IXP based in the Netherlands.
These new additions will enable all NetIX members to benefit by accessing routes and content from Netnod, Piter-IX, and InterIX’s members through NetIX’s GIX (Global Internet Exchange) or remote peering solutions. Members will be able to greatly improve their reach simply, efficiently and without the need for costly buildouts or investment using NetIX’s network-enhancing solutions.
“Adding three new IXPs to our ecosystem of partners just shows the strength and growing popularity and demand of NetIX,” said Dean Belev, VP of Services at NetIX. He continued, “Connecting into Netnod, Piter-IX, and InterIX and adding their routes improves our service offering, giving our network a very nice boost by enabling access to at least a further 400 ASNs so our members can now access over 10,000 ASNs directly and around 410,000 IPv4 addresses.”
“In February ‘23, NetIX became a part of the 2Tb club, and over the last five months our traffic peaks have grown by 200Gb; we are excited to see the new records we’ll reach now we’ve connected these three IXPs,” said Dilyan Berkovski, CPO at NetIX. “At NetIX, we always have our members at the forefront of everything we do, and we are sure they’ll soon see the many benefits of accessing these new 400+ ASNs.”
Peering at NetIX is beneficial to networks, ISPs, and content delivery networks of all sizes for three key reasons: lessening the need for IP transit significantly thus reducing network costs, reducing latency times, and increasing redundancy and improving network resiliency by providing a better end-user experience.
NetIX has always been a key player in Internet Exchange 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 last month.
