New service desk, Frankfurt crosses 10 Tbps, and welcome Barcelona!
In November it finally happened – DE-CIX Frankfurt hit 10 Terabits per second for the very first time. And it was not the only new record we had this month, as the traffic and the connected network numbers have been growing steadily over the past year across our Internet Exchanges.
To help with this growth and to be more efficient at supporting our customers, we have introduced a new customer service desk. It is now easier than ever for you to open tickets, check the status of your tickets, and to close them. In our interview on our anniversary website, Nokia's Wim Henderickx also talks about helping customers to succeed. He supported the development of the platforms that keep the traffic flowing at our Internet Exchanges.
In other news, during our Interconnection Summit Madrid Edition 2020 we announced our 25th Internet Exchange, DE-CIX Barcelona. We also held a summit in Istanbul and launched a new white paper examining the interconnection markets in Southeast Asia. Remember to also register for the first DE-CIX Interconnection Summit North America edition.

Great things come from small beginnings
Some ten years ago, we had to swap out our devices every 6 months – we needed the next, slightly larger, model in order to grow just a bit. The constant racing against the clock is what led to the conception and design of the DE-CIX Apollon platform. Find out more.
New customer service desk
