Amsterdam Internet Exchange connects 100 networks in 2011

The Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) has realised 100 connections so far in 2011, this is the largest growth the not for profit exchange has seen in its 17 year history.

The AMS-IX grew to a collection of 500 unique internet parties thanks to this 20% growth in new customers and saw a 32% growth in capacity to 5.2Tbps of connected capacity.

The volume of growth symbolises a boost in overall business for the non-profit organisation. More than 60% of the new connections originated from the efforts of partners and resellers.

Job Witteman, AMS-IX CEO explains, “European networks were quick to see the cost benefits of joining AMS-IX in the early Internet era. What we now see is that Asian Middle Eastern and African networks are also taking advantage of these benefits as they develop into cross regional networks.”
