Epsilon, a privately-owned global communications Service Provider, has partnered with NL-ix, the pan-European Interconnect Exchange, to provide on-demand access to its Internet Exchange Point (IXP). Users of Epsilon’s on-demand connectivity platform, Infiny, will gain a simple, cost-effective and secure way to peer with NL-ix members across Europe.
NL-ix is rapidly growing its local Internet Exchanges (IXs) in the Northwestern European region. The partnership with Epsilon will enable more peering partners to reach its IXPs from across the globe, adding to its already rich ecosystem.
“NL-ix makes a fantastic addition to our Global Interconnect Fabric and gives our partners increased choice when peering in Europe from anywhere on our global network,” said Jerzy Szlosarek, CEO at Epsilon. “The integration of our on-demand network with NL-ix provides our partners with peering access from global hubs like London, Frankfurt and Paris. We are constantly growing our ecosystem with new IXs to deliver the full benefit of peering remotely from a single platform.”
“Our focus on key growth regions is paying off. We are now the largest Internet Exchange in Copenhagen and Rotterdam and the number two in Amsterdam, Brussels, Marseille and Paris,” said Jan Hoogenboom, Founder of NL-ix. “For other regions, partnering with an advanced provider like Epsilon is the way ahead for our customers. It will be great to see more networks present at our Exchanges and new peering options available for our members.”
Epsilon’s IX Connect directly connects users to the world’s leading IXs and offers diverse peering capabilities. Service Providers no longer have to be physically present at the IXs and can rely on Infiny to connect them to multiple IXs from a single platform. It is a flexible and cost-effective solution to interconnect with IXPs while adding resilience and improving performance. This enables service providers to remotely peer at IXs across the globe and enhance their offering for end users.
