Manchester, United Kingdom – May 2018: IX Reach, the global leading provider of carrier services and connectivity solutions and specialists in remote peering, has today announced its infrastructure upgrade to 200GE into The London Internet Exchange (LINX).
This upgrade will enable the remote peering experts to offer more competitive remote peering solutions into LINX so networks, CDNs and ISPs of all sizes can benefit.
“We’re delighted to be in the position where we’ve needed to upgrade our capacity due to customer demand,” commented Dave Pumford, Lead Network Architect at IX Reach. “It’s great to remain market leading in remote peering, especially with connecting so many global networks into LINX, and to continue to work closely with them to achieve another key milestone.”
IX Reach has enjoyed a rich history with LINX and has lead the way for carrier/IXP partnerships; as the first reseller to take a 100GE port and the first network to offer remote peering at their US exchange, LINX NoVA, the relationship between the two companies is strong and continues to grow.
Chief Marketing Officer at LINX, Kurtis Lindqvist, says: “LINX has enjoyed a long and successful partnership with IX Reach. The reseller programme has had many mutual benefits for our organisations and these new orders will certainly enhance that as we work together in future.”
With its excellent reputation as remote peering specialists, IX Reach is the clear choice for connectivity into LINX’s London, Manchester, Northern Virginia and Scotland exchanges; its broad and far-reaching global network footprint includes major cities across Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East with key cities having extensive metro connectivity.
