Turknet has connected its network to DE-CIX Istanbul to cope with the flow of its growing international data traffic.
Turknet has taken this step as a result of increased data
traffic of at least 50% in 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports, and a
growing connected customer capacity of 22 Terabits.
In the past year, DE-CIX has continued to grow rapidly on
the international front and has expanded to a further five
locations around the globe.
DE-CIX reports a new record traffic peak for last year of
5.6 Terabits. At the same time, the number of connected 100
Gigabit Ethernet ports grew by more than 50%, from 97 in 2015
to 145, while the connected customer capacity increased to 22
Terabits. DE-CIX was also able to bring 114 new customers to
the Frankfurt Exchange in 2016.
In the past year, DE-CIX has continued to expand its
internet exchange locations internationally. While a new data
centre location was added to each of the existing internet
exchanges in Frankfurt, Dusseldorf and Istanbul, the new
Internet Exchanges in Dallas and Madrid went live with two data
centre locations each. Internationally, 184 new customers were
brought to the Exchanges, and the globally connected customer
capacity at the end of 2016 had reached a total of 25
Harald A. Summa, CEO, DE-CIX said: "Last year, DE-CIX
was not only able to enthral new customers with our services,
but we were also in the right place at the right time when we
opened Dallas and Madrid, giving us two extremely fast-growing
new locations. We can already foresee that the DE-CIX success
story will continue to write itself in 2017."
