NL-ix rolls out complete Interconnect portfolio across Europe

09 November 2016 | Jason McGee-Abe


NL-ix has announced at Capacity Europe it has rolled out its complete interconnect portfolio across its pan-European fabric, adding: transport, routing and cloud connect services to its already available European distributed peering service.

Peering

Besides European peering on the NL-ix Exchange, NL-ix now offers remote peering from all its on-net data centres anywhere in Europe with all important metro-based exchanges: LINX, AMSIX, FRANCE-ix, NETNOD and LONAP. Furthermore it can assist Networks in setting up peering sessions with hard-to-get Networks such as Deutsche Telekom, UPC and KPN.

Routing

In case peering doesn’t give you all the routes you’re looking for, NL-ix can help by providing NL or EU Routing. With these services you get access to the majority of Dutch or European routes as a turn-key solution without the need to negotiate and setup direct peers. If this still doesn’t give you enough routes you can add Joint Transit, a full routing table from a blend of tier 1 and 2 providers.

Transport

NL-ix’s network fabric can not only be used for peering but also for transport. Whether you need to connect two of your data centre locations or want to distribute content to your customers, NL-ix always has a matching solution leveraging our stable, low latency network.

Cloud Connect

Most cloud providers have options for direct connections to their compute platforms at selected locations. But you may not have a presence in the same data centre, city or even country. By connecting our network to those cloud providers we can make those direct connections available to you in any of the sites we have a presence in.

“We have been successfully offering our complete interconnect portfolio in The Netherlands since 2001. Now that we have grown our fabric to a reach of 100 data centres in all relevant metropolitan areas in Europe and upgraded our Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris, Marseille, Stockholm hypercore network to fully redundant multiple 100 Gb/s links and upgraded all our cross links, we feel comfortable introducing our complete interconnect portfolio across Europe”; says Jan Hoogenboom, founder of NL-ix. “The complete portfolio is available in all data centres throughout Europe. 

NL-ix has also demonstrated its latency slider tool, at Capacity Europe, with user-controlled latency and geo selective peering options
