AMS-IX to set up PoP in GPX’s Mumbai data centre

28 February 2018 | Jason Mcgee-Abe

A third AMS-IX India point of presence (PoP) has been launched in GPX’s Mumbai data centre.

With the addition of a third PoP the neutral internet exchange (IX) has a presence in all areas of Mumbai - south, central and north.

The PoP at GPX DC, which has the richest ecosystem of Carriers and Content providers, will be operational in Q2 2018. However, five GPX customers have already committed and are ready to join and peer at AMS-IX India.

"By opening a third POP in Mumbai we are expanding our AMS-IX India footprint in one of the world’s fastest growing internet markets," said Onno Bos, sales director of AMS-IX.

"Furthermore, it makes it easier for customers to connect to AMS-IX India. We are therefore very pleased to be present at GPX and are confident that this will enhance the growth of AMS-IX India."

Manoj Paul, MD, GPX India, added: "GPX’s Mumbai data centre is true carrier neutral and IX neutral and is the most interconnected data centre in India with the largest number of telecom service providers (TSPs), internet service providers (ISPs), and is also the hub for all major content providers. The addition of AMS-IX India’s internet exchange platform allows our customers, mainly the ISPs and content providers, to enhance their connectivity, reduce costs, introduce new products, and increase the level of their customer’s experience and satisfaction".
