Partnership announcement

MIX joins the Console Connect ecosystem

By 17th June 2022No Comments

Console Connect is pleased to welcome the Milan Internet eXchange (MIX) to the Console Connect ecosystem – enabling on-demand peering and interconnection opportunities with Italy’s leading Internet Exchange Point (IXP).

Through the Console Connect management portal, Console Connect users can now provision and pay for both their remote peering services and connectivity at MIX.

As many organisations shift from traditional transit service to remote peering, they are looking for faster and more secure ways to access IXPs worldwide. Console Connect’s Internet-Exchange-as-a-Service (IXaaS) addresses this need by providing a private and secure Layer 2 service and remote peering in one bundled solution – without the need for additional infrastructure or equipment at an IXP.

Here is some more information about our latest IXaaS partner MIX:

  • MIX was Founded in 2000 and offers interconnection services available at 10 different data centres in Italy.
  • It is among the top European IXPs with more than 360 connected networks
  • In May, MIX announced that it had exceeded the threshold of 11Tbs of capacity connected at its Points of Presence (PoPs).
  •  MIX is the founding member of Open Hub Med, a neutral hub in Italy for the interconnection of the networks in the Mediterranean Basin and Northern Europe
