VIX3: Bandwidth of Cross-Connections Extended
Our smallest location so far, VIX3 (NTT), is becoming more and more popular. In order to accommodate this growth, we have doubled the bandwidth of its cross-connections to VIX1 and VIX2 in mid-May 2022.
After a two-year Corona break, the Peering Days could take place again this year in Athens (26-28 April) and were very well attended and a great success. Presentation documents and photos are now available online.
On 31 March 2022, the core switches at the VIX2 site (Interxion) were successfully replaced with more powerful models during ongoing operations. This means that twice as many 100 Gbps ports are now available for participant connections.
From 1 Juni 2021, some price reductions take effect at the VIX. Invoices for existing participants are automatically adjusted. The fee for a 10G port is lowered to 400 EUR (from 500 EUR), for a 100G port to 1600 EUR (from 2500 EUR). All other prices and the 20 % dual-site discount remain unchanged.
