New access sites, a core migration, and more

While we saw spikes in the traffic statistics of our exchanges when people were watching games of the soccer world championships, a lot was going on in parallel at DE-CIX. We extended our reach by adding new DE-CIX access sites all over Europe with euNetworks, successfully moved a core node in Frankfurt, and made the AS112 service availabel in Marseille. You can check out here at which sites in more than 450 cities worldwide you can either access DE-CIX directly or get conneted via a DE-CIX reseller.

Project Reach: DE-CIX partners with euNetworks to expand access to DE-CIX

We are expanding the locations where customers can connect to DE-CIX. DE-CIX partners with carriers, leveraging their transport networks and points of presence (PoPs) for additional access. In addition to existing DE-CIX enabled sites, where DE-CIX maintains own hardware, these new access sites are added with partners such as euNetworks who maintain and manage the hardware. Learn more.
