SOFIA, Bulgaria – NetIX, the leading global distributed platform for connectivity and peering services has further improved its global footprint by investing in its Equinix Ashburn Point of Presence (PoP) and bringing it fully on-net as its first in a series of upgrades to its U.S. East Coast network.
NetIX has a huge and incredibly strong network footprint across Europe. Members can access any of the 66 on-net European locations through a single cross connect and due to demand this level of connectivity and ease of doing business has been replicated and rolled out across the U.S. with popular locations like Ashburn being upgraded.
This investment will be beneficial to both existing members who are now able to add a new city to their network through the NetIX platform, and also to networks in the Equinix Ashburn facility who are now able to become NetIX members and access all 150+ global locations and services effortlessly.
This Ashburn investment comes less than a month after NetIX announced its network upgrade in Madrid. More announcements are anticipated over the coming weeks and months as network improvements are implemented.
The NetIX platform brings simplicity to network expansions via a single connection; NetIX is home to 140+ members, 30+ IXPs, and 6,000+ networks across 65 cities and any connected network can benefit by connecting to any peer or location using the same port.
