NetIX implements network automation on its network
Sofia, Bulgaria – 29th September 2021: NetIX, the leading global distributed platform for award-winning connectivity and peering solutions has taken the next step in its pursuit towards becoming an automated network by implementing and integrating a new automated port provisioning process.
This process upgrade will enable the NetIX provisioning team to simply select the customer, location, port, and service, and let the in-house developed algorithm provision the order reducing the amount of manual work required – freeing their time for other matters – and also removing the possibility of human error.
“We are so excited to be able to announce this fresh step in our automation journey,” commented Pavel Marchev, CTO of NetIX. He continued, “Our traffic levels have more than doubled in a year which – whilst amazing – has put extra pressure on the team. By removing this time-consuming manual work, it allows the team to focus on other areas of growth and improvement so we can continue to improve. The team and I are already looking forward to automating more processes, and making it customer-facing in the future also!”
NetIX’s Global Internet Exchange (GIX) service is one of the solutions now being provisioned automatically. GIX’s popularity grew among content networks and ISPs with the start of the COVID-19 pandemic as it combines over 8,000 routes from 30+ IXPs via one cross connect and port. With more networks deploying this service, the team had to work extra-long hours in order to provision all services in a timely manner – however, this time-consuming manual work has now been removed with the implementation of automated provisioning.
The NetIX platform brings simplicity to network expansions via a single connection; NetIX is home to 180+ members, 30+ IXPs, and 8,000+ networks across 65 cities and any connected network can benefit by connecting to any peer or location using the same port.
Are you ready to improve your network and benefit from the newly automated provisioning process? NetIX’s GIX service at is beneficial to networks of all sizes for three key reasons: it lessens the need for IP transit significantly thus reducing network costs, it increases redundancy and it improves network resiliency by providing a better end-user experience.
