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. Enjoy the newsletter!
The DE-CIX team successfully completed the project DE-CIX Frankfurt 2020, paving the way for the subsequent growth of DE-CIX Frankfurt: Two Nokia SR14s were installed at DE-CIX FRA 2 and FRA 6 site (Interxion), both with a capacity of up to 648x 100GE access ports. In addition, our two new fully automated patch robots were installed and taken live. Read more.
