DE-CIX Tops 5.5 Tbps Across its Frankfurt Internet Exchange

The DE-CIX Internet Exchange in Frankfurt (Main/Germany) hit a new peak traffic load of 5.5 terabits per second (Tbps).

"With the roll-out of Apple's iOS 10 update, we recorded a new peak in traffic on DE-CIX’s Frankfurt Exchange this week,” says Harald A. Summa, CEO of DE-CIX. “In general, our traffic moves along in waves and reflects our usual daily Internet use rhythm, starting at 6:00 am and peaking at 9:00 pm. One should also take into account seasonal changes. For instance, during the summer months, people aren’t online as often as they are in winter.  Overall the data traffic at DE-CIX in Frankfurt is certainly going to increase even more going forward.”
