NetIX achieves new milestones amid network automation deployment
NetIX confirms the implementation and integration a new automated port provisioning process.
The process upgrade enables the NetIX provisioning team to select the customer, location, port, and service, and let the in-house developed algorithm provision the order reducing the amount of manual work required – freeing their time for other matters – and also removing the possibility of human error.
“We are so excited to be able to announce this fresh step in our automation journey,” said Pavel Marchev, CTO of NetIX.
“Our traffic levels have more than doubled in a year which – whilst amazing – has put extra pressure on the team. By removing this time-consuming manual work, it allows the team to focus on other areas of growth and improvement so we can continue to improve. The team and I are already looking forward to automating more processes and making it customer-facing in the future also.”
Most recently, the company expanded its European presence by opening a new satellite office in Barcelona.
This new location will support the company's partnerships with networks, Internet Service Providers and Content Delivery Networks in Spain and western Europe as well as better-position NetIX and its partner, Neterra, to be better prepared to deal with Dedicated Internet Access, connectivity and colocation requests.
"The decision to further expand across Europe and have a bigger presence is a logical step in our business growth strategy," said Neven Dilkov (pictured), founder and CEO of NetIX and the Neterra Group.
"As our Dedicated Internet Access service is receiving unprecedented levels of interest and uptake, we needed to expand our presence to keep up with demand. Opening this office in Spain in addition to our existing presence will further strengthen service capabilities in the fast-growing DIA market of Europe.”
In addition, NetIX also achieved Silver status as an official LINX ConneXions Reseller Partner.
“We are delighted to have reached this new level of partnership with LINX,” said Dilkov.
“Being an Internet Exchange ourselves, we know how beneficial peering is to a network - and we’re happy we can help them, along with ISPs and CDNs by improving their connectivity and quality whilst reducing latency and cost. Peering and Internet Exchanges really have a ‘for the good of the Internet’ mindset, and we’re pleased to support and encourage this.”
Since 2018, NetIX has been offering a remote peering service into the London Internet Exchange (LINX) with the demand for peering and remote peering, NetIX has passed the threshold in order to be awarded Silver status.
“It’s been great to see our partnership with NetIX grow over the past 18 months, both capacity wise and new networks connecting," said Jennifer Holmes, CCO of LINX
"London remains a key interconnection point, globally, so having partners like NetIX on board providing the transport for networks to reach us is really valuable. We look forward to working with the team closer as they move further up our reseller tiers."
