DE-CIX has opened a new #internetexchange (#ixp ) in #leipzig , located in the #datacentres of envia TEL GmbH and PŸUR Business.
It will be the first exchange for the #German states of #Brandenburg, #saxony , Saxony-Anhalt, and #Thuringia, enabling both envia TEL and PŸUR Business will be able to resell DE-CIX’s #interconnection services.
In addition to allowing for local data exchange, through DE-CIX Leipzig, the region will be connected to one of the world’s largest Internet Exchanges, DE-CIX Frankfurt. This also integrates it into the wider global ecosystem and the reduced packet run-time between connected companies will lead to a more stable network for applications like cloud computing, VoIP connections, video, gaming, and music streaming, DE-CIX said.
DE-CIX Leipzig is scheduled to go into operation in Q4 2022.
