AMS-IX Internet Exchange Hits Milestone of 3 Tbps Peak Traffic

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) has broken the data transfer speed record of 3 Terabits per second (Tbps) for the first time on September 14th -- an all time record for The Netherlands. Last year in September, peak speed on AMS-IX was 2.4 Tbps.

“Breaking this barrier makes us really proud”, says Job Witteman, CEO at AMS-IX. “In the past year some great, international organisations for who the Internet is of vital importance, connected to AMS-IX. The data traffic that is being exchanged via AMS-IX, keeps on growing. In July 2010, when we reached the barrier of 1 Tbps, we never expected to reach the 3 Tbps barrier this fast. This proves that the continuous expansion of our network, the increase of existing connections, adding exchange locations to our network and improving technical support is profitable.”
