Did you see it? Last month’s newsletter listed for our exchanges in Hamburg, Munich, and Dusseldorf more than 10 new customers for each exchange. Meanwhile, more than 70 networks peer in Hamburg, more than 60 networks peer in Munich, and more than 50 networks peer in Dusseldorf. This is a tremendous growth of more than 100 percent, for Dusseldorf even a growth of more than 180 percent, compared to last year’s end of December numbers.
The growth is a result of our ongoing endeavor to grow not only our flagship exchanges but also the smaller regional exchanges. Part of the success story is DE-CIX’s GlobePEER Remote service that allows networks to peer remotely at additional DE-CIX locations. The DE-CIX platforms in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, New York, Marseille, and Istanbul are interconnected. With access in one of the locations, you can peer remotely at every other one of these locations.
Bringing some more networks to the exchanges with GlobePEER Remote supported the growth of the regional exchanges as a whole, enhancing the attractiveness of the exchanges. Happy peering!
