DE-CIX and Capcon Networks Announce Strategic Channel Partnership

FRANKFURT, Germany, 23 May 2023 DE-CIX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) operator and home to the largest carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem on the planet and Capcon Networks, an industry leader in carrier agnostic connectivity, today announce a strategic partnership with Capcon in the United States. Capcon is uniquely positioned to address the US rural telecommunications market because they are not limited to specific geographies, making them an ideal reseller to work with nationwide.

The symbiotic relationship between DE-CIX and Capcon Networks is perfect for the creation of a targeted transport-to-peering product, which is called Connect-IX©. This product allows rural networks to scale while improving their customer experience by enabling rural network operators to exchange traffic directly with each other, content providers, CDN’s and hundreds of networks over a single transport connection.

“Capcon Networks has extensive experience optimizing bandwidth and delivering capacity and connectivity to rural network operators; and Connect-IX© is the next iteration of how we are innovating for the benefit of rural communities” said Offir Schwartz, CEO of Capcon Networks. He went on to say, “Connect-IX is a real-life solution that proves that even remote/rural networks can have carrier class reliability and functionality, and Capcon Networks couldn’t be more excited about our part in bringing this solution to market.” This partnership enables Capcon customers to gain turnkey access to DE-CIX US exchanges and will initially be offered in rural regions near Chicago, Dallas, New York and Phoenix.

“DE-CIX is excited to partner with Capcon Networks to offer our solutions in remote areas” said Kendra Pignotti, Regional Director Strategic Partners North America. “This is part of our ongoing effort to expand beyond the metro areas and better serve the regions in which our exchanges exist.”
