IXEurope, Europe's specialist datacentre company, is to expand its successful Zurich, Switzerland based Internet Exchange by opening a new exchange in Munich, Germany.
Founded in 1998 in Zurich, the TIX Internet Exchange provides peering for more than 60 Internet Service Providers and is the largest Exchange in Switzerland - both in terms of members and continuous traffic.
By expanding the TIX to Munich via a new exchange platform in its Munich based IXDatacentre, ISPs in the region now have a viable neutral peering point to exchange Internet traffic.
Customers will benefit from reduced latency of data traffic, more reliable connections, reduced overall transmission and network costs.
Members of this new Internet Exchange will also benefit from the superior infrastructure, technical standards and operations provided from its Munich IXDatacentre, attributes which have made IXEurope the quality leader in the European datacentre market.
This announcement comes almost a year since the first trans-national Internet Exchange (NDIX.B.V.) has operated in the Düsseldorf IXDatacentre. In Frankfurt, IXEurope provides access to the largest Internet Exchange (DE-CIX) from both Frankfurt City and Frankfurt North IXDatacentres via protected 1Gb LAN connections.
IXEurope is one of Europe's fastest growing providers of datacentre services. Its principal activities include primary datacentre services, hosting infrastructure and business continuity solutions.
IXEurope works with enterprise and internet customers to provide resilient datacentre infrastructure to house their IT systems far more cost-effectively than through in-house provision. The benefits include optimised IT performance, improved systems availability and reduced corporate risk through improved regulatory compliance. By continually focusing on quality, IXEurope also gives clients exceptional service levels and on-site access to a high level of technical expertise.
With award winning datacentre facilities in key European cities, broad technology expertise and a proven track record, IXEurope provides solutions that give customers the confidence that their operations are protected. The Company has over 450 customers in the enterprise, internet and networking markets including Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Börse Systems AG, Network Rail and France Telecom.
Founded in 1998, IXEurope was listed on the London Stock Exchange in April 2006.
