DE-CIX opens PoP at NJFX Cable Landing Station

DE-CIX, which now operates the largest Internet Exchange (IX) in the New York market, has established a Point of Presence (PoP) in the NJFX Cable Landing Station (CLS).

The new PoP at NJFX will provide access for customers to exchange traffic so that their data can traverse directly from the U.S. East Coast to Europe and beyond, as well as up and down the East Coast U.S. corridor to the New York metro area, and to Ashburn, Virginia. Customers can also interexchange traffic across the multiple subsea cable systems available at NJFX, including TGN1, TGN2, and Seabras, in addition to HAVFRUE/AEC2 later this year.

“DE-CIX is establishing more than just a point of presence at NJFX,” comments Felix Seda, General Manager for NJFX. “With the deployment of a router to exchange traffic directly at NJFX, it decreases the hops and increases security while improving latency, and allows carriers and service providers to reach their destinations more directly.”

Currently, DE-CIX serves more than 1850 network operators, Internet service providers (ISPs), and content providers from 100+ countries with peering and interconnection services at its more than 20 locations in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and North America. DE-CIX North America operates two IXs in Dallas and New York.

“For global enterprises, ISPs, CDNs and network operators, having access to diverse terrestrial and subsea options for connectivity is the coin of the realm, the foundation of their ability to reach new customers and penetrate new markets,” states Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International. “By establishing a presence at the NJFX CLS colocation campus, customers are now able to leverage direct, low latency routes to major U.S. business hubs in New York and Ashburn that avoid legacy chokepoints.  In addition, customers can also gain access to multiple subsea cable systems for intercontinental data exchange, including critical transatlantic connectivity to Europe. We are also seeing the LATAM market as one of the focus regions for networks we want to connect in NJFX to DE-CIX New York.”

DE-CIX tops 8 Tbps at Frankfurt Internet Exchange

DE-CIX Frankfurt hit a new world record: more than 8.1 Terabits per second across its Internet Exchange. In September, the Frankfurt Internet Exchange handled peak rate of 7.1 Tbps for the first time.

In a timeframe of just a few weeks, data traffic at DE-CIX Frankfurt increased by almost 14 percent at peak times.

“This record figure not only underscores our position in the global market, but also that of the FrankfurtRhineMain metropolitan region as one of the most important data hubs in the world.  We are very happy with the development that we have been able to observe for many years now with regard to data throughput and the customer response to it at DE-CIX in Frankfurt. This data record can be explained purely on the basis of the increase in the number of connected networks since the beginning of the year. Here we were able to record an increase of more than 10 percent, which brings us to just under 950 connected networks. An additional factor coming into play is being in the season when Internet users particularly like to stream films or play online. All of these components contribute to such a record,” says Thomas King, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at DE-CIX.

Generally, the data traffic at Internet Exchanges moves in waves and reflects the daily rhythm of Internet usage, beginning at 6 am and reaching its peak at around 9 in the evening. Seasonal changes – in summer people tend to be online less than in the fall and winter months – can also be registered.

DE-CIX brings its Internet Exchange to Equinix Istanbul

DE-CIX will bring its Internet Exchange into Equinix’s IL2 International Business Exchange (IBX) data center in Istanbul, Turkey. By moving into Equinix’s IL2 data center, DE-CIX will be able to leverage Equinix’s Metro Connect services to provide direct, dedicated, carrier-grade network links between Turkey’s MedNautilus subsea cable landing station and IL2. These cable systems enable accelerated traffic globalization and data consumption, as well as rapid growth of cloud and online services.

DE-CIX currently operates more than 20 neutral Internet Exchanges in Europe, India, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and North America. The company’s Frankfurt Internet Exchange is the largest IX worldwide in terms of peak traffic – with a maximum data throughput of more than 7.8 terabits per second.

"Extending our presence in Istanbul with our long-term partner Equinix, shows we are building robust, secure and reliable interconnection bridges across continents. Istanbul itself owns a unique strategic position within Eurasia and DE-CIX is here to strengthen this position with its customers and partners. We believe Istanbul is the interconnection gateway to Europe, Asia and Middle East, with a huge future potential," states Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International.

DE-CIX Notes Upturn in 100G Internet Exchange Connections

DE-CIX, which recently recorded an all-time record peak throughput volume of 4 Terabit/s on its Internet Exchange in Frankfurt, is seeing customers upgrade their port size and capacity.  The company reports that during the first quarter of 2015, customers ordered the same number of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100 GE) ports as they did in all of 2014.

As an example, Akamai, the global leader in Content Delivery Network (CDN) services, has upgraded its capacity at DE-CIX in Frankfurt to 12x100 GE connections. Delivering 1.2 Terabits per second, this is the largest service provider bandwidth at any Internet exchange worldwide.

“Our goal is for our customers’ content to arrive as quickly as possible at its final destination, no matter where in the world the end user is,” says Noam Freedman, Senior Vice President, Networks and Chief Network Architect at Akamai Technologies. “With more than 700 Internet service providers worldwide, DE-CIX is one of our most important Internet exchange providers. With the 2013  implementation of its DE-CIX Apollon technology platform to easily handle 100 GE demands, DE-CIX has made it very easy for us to expand our capacity there. In this way, we’re well-positioned for the growing IP traffic volumes around the world.”
