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
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".
