DE-CIX India has confirmed its sixth point of presence (PoP) in Mumbai at GPX2.

The development means that DE-CIX interconnection services, including GlobePEER and DirectCLOUD, are available immediately to customers. Further, DE-CIX Mumbai is now present in six data centres across the financial capital.

“Interconnection is the key to acceleration and growth of the Internet in any country,” said Sudhir Kunder (pictured), SVP and national head, DE-CIX Interwire, India.

“Data centres today are the warehouses of the digital economy; providing a home not only for the data itself but also for the platforms and applications that have become so ubiquitous in the modern world. With this new PoP, DE-CIX reaches additional customers with low-latency edge requirements and helps them to cost-effectively extend their reach. These powerful, flexible, and scalable DE-CIX interconnection solutions enable GPX to meet the rapidly growing connectivity needs of clients from all verticals across the globe,” Kunder continued.

DE-CIX India is the largest carrier and data centre neutral IX operator in the Indian market.

It serves more than 250 networks in India with presences in GPX1 and GPX2 Mumbai, Web Werks DC2, Netmagic DC5, STT Telemedia DC, and Sify Technologies Rabale.

DE-CIX is the only Open-IX certified IX in India, connecting the ISPs, content delivery networks, cloud companies, OTTs, and other network providers, along with educational institutes in the connected networks.
