Berlin’s leading Internet Exchange, BCIX, and DE-CIX have established a strategic partnership that directly connects the BCIX exchange in Berlin and the DE-CIX exchange in Frankfurt.
DE-CIX Berlin powered by BCIX offers the whole DE-CIX service portfolio: DE-CIX customers can get access in Berlin and peer there directly (GlobePEER), or they can peer in Berlin with their access in Frankfurt or vice versa (GlobePEER Remote). They can use the MetroVLAN service to connect directly with other networks, or connect to cloud providers with the DirectCLOUD service.
The same is also true for BCIX customers. Both operators act as one-stop-shops for the available services, so there is no need for additional contracts.
“There has been a positive cooperative environment between DE-CIX and BCIX for years now. Over the years, we have all gone to great lengths for Germany as an Internet location. Given that the virtual path between Frankfurt and Berlin is interesting for many of our peering partners, we decided to make this connection as easy as possible for our peers,” commented Christian Kröger, CEO of BCIX Management GmbH, on the strategic partnership.
