All NL-ix locations are seamlessly interconnected over our low-latency European fabric, offering coast-to-coast premium Pan European interconnection
Marseille is an important landing station for a large number of important subsea cables making it a key gateway to and from the African, Middle East and Asian regions. The strategic location of the Marseille PoP, in combination with the distributed nature of the NL-ix fabric, creates opportunities for both European-based content networks and eyeball networks from the Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
In 2021 NL-ix doubled the capacity of its routes to Amsterdam and Frankfurt to meet our architectural rule of making 2.5 times the required capacity available.
No small island of Interconnection but a European-wide interconnection fabric. How NL-ix has changed the scope of Peering.
Traditional Internet Exchange points operate from a single City or Metropolitan Area. Connected networks all haul their traffic to the location of the IXP to exchange traffic with other networks.
NL-ix has a different approach. We operate a distributed exchange. This means that where traditional exchanges form little islands of Interconnection, we have constructed a Pan-European fabric of Interconnection covering all NLix enabled Datacenters in all Important European Internet hubs (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris), major European Metropolitan areas (Dusseldorf, Luxembourg, Brussels, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Copenhagen) and important other Gateways into Europe (Berlin and Copenhagen)
Connecting to an NL-ix enabled datacenter in Marseille will enable a network to exchange traffic with networks connected in any of the other NL-ix enabled datacenters anywhere in Europe.
