Getting ready for 2020: Increased capacity, automated provisioning, new 100GE sites

While many of us enjoy the summer break with their families, the DE-CIX team is busy working on making our Exchanges ready for the next years to come. Growth goes on unabated, and in order to grow together with our customers, we upgraded our infrastructure in Frankfurt with two Nokia SR14s and two new patch robots for automated provisioning. And at DE-CIX New York, we upgraded our infrastructure too, making three more sites 100GE ready. In addition, we'll report on a new peak in Istabul, some great BBQ Summer events you should not miss, and of course: Don't forget to register for the European Peering Forum in Tallinn, Estonia.
