The world’s leading Internet Exchange operator DE-CIX was honored at the Global Carrier Awards 2018 for its innovative power and was awarded the prize for the “Best Internet Exchange Innovation 2018” for the world’s first-ever “patch robot”. The patch robot has been in operation at DE-CIX since the largest infrastructure migration in the company’s history earlier this year. It simplifies the provisioning or upgrade of customer ports and performs this within minutes, without the need for a technician to directly physically intervene.
“It is a great honor for us to be distinguished for our technological competence by renowned experts and multipliers from our sector. We are continually trying to help shape the future of the Internet with groundbreaking innovations for the benefit of our customers and the community. This prize is a further testimony to our ambitions,” says Harald A. Summa, CEO of DE-CIX, who accepted the prize during the award ceremony in London.
