November 2, 2015, The Hague, The Netherlands – The Neutral Internet Exchange (NL-ix) today announced it has added 12 new PoP’s to her distributed Internet exchange (530+ members, 1.5 Tbps peak traffic) in the last couple of months, bringing the total number of connected data centers to the European NL-ix network to 86.
“Traditional Internet Exchanges focus on single metropolitan areas, NL-ix however has taken the model of the Internet Exchange to a new level by connecting all major European metropolitan areas”, says Jan Hoogenboom, founder of NL-ix. ”This means that networks can hop on our Peering VLAN on all 86 PoP’s and exchange traffic for a flat rate per port, all over Europe.”
The newly opened PoP’s are located in Rotterdam, London, Paris, Copenhagen(2), Prague, Munich, Vienna, Dusseldorf, Zurich and Berlin(2).
The total number of connected data centers to the NL-ix network is currently 86 with more (Stockholm, Marseille and Milan) planned in the near future. NL-ix expects to connect the 100th data center in the first quarter of 2016.
