NetIX expands IXaaS for bespoke deployment
The Internet Exchange-as-a-Service (IXaaS) solution launched in February by NetIX has been expanded to offer more options to networks globally.
The product development team at NetIX has identified 66 separate key components that together make a fully functioning IXP; the newly improved IXaaS solution allows the user to pick and choose precisely which of these 66 elements they wish to implement enabling them to create a truly bespoke IXP solution to suit their requirements.
NetIX said that, whilst larger networks have a round the clock NOC, automatic billing software and trusted suppliers for specific hardware, many of the smaller, more remote networks that deal with quieter areas of the internet may need to source these dedicated functions.
“This requires time and money. With NetIX’s improved IXaaS service you can implement all 66 elements, or just three to complement your existing IX strategy.”
Neven Dilkov, founder of NetIX commented: “We have always been advocates of peering. We actively encourage networks to implement a peering solution so traffic can be exchanged faster and ISPs can provide a quicker and more reliable experience for their customers.”
“We want to help all networks - no matter their size - to be able to offer local Peering Exchanges which will lead to the Internet becoming even better connected,” he commented.
Currently, the NetIX network covers more than 150 global data centres in 65 cities from 35 countries.
