We are happy to announce that Core-Backbone, a long-standing DE-CIX partner and reseller, has upgraded to 6x100 GE at DE-CIX Frankfurt. When our reseller partner program started back in 2011, and the first resellers came on board with 10 GE, we for sure were convinced that DE-CIX would grow together with its partners. But we had not yet thought in categories like 6x100 GE. Core-Backbone joined DE-CIX in 2014, and in the last years, were regularly one of our top 3 resellers.
With the current upgrade, Core-Backbone has by far the largest connected capacity of all our resellers. The other resellers with multiple 100GE capacity are IX Reach, Megafone, and RETN with 2x100G each.
New: Reselling for DE-CIX Madrid
In addition to Frankfurt, Core-Backbone is a reseller for DE-CIX’s Internet Exchanges in Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, New York, and, since this summer, also in Madrid.
“We are happy to announce our upgrade at DE-CIX Frankfurt to 6 x 100 GE and the expansion of our network to Madrid,” states Ulrich Köhler, Head of Development and Network at Core-Backbone. “We are glad about successfully continuing our collaboration with the DE-CIX team. Within the next weeks, we will also put new routes in Europe – based on our own DWDM – into operation.”
We would like to say a warm welcome to Core-Backbone in Madrid, and we look forward to seeing the first customers of Core-Backbone peer there.
