LINX takes a Digital Realty POP at London

DLR's London customers also get 'satellite' access to virtual PoPs.

By Ben Sullivan

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) will be establishing a Point of Presence (PoP) in support of runnings its dual LAN infrastructure from Digital Realty’s Chessington data centre.

Rob Bath, VP of engineering for EMEA at Digital Realty, said that the LINX’s decision also means that Digital Realty’s London clients will have the ability to use virtual Points of Presence.

He said: "LINX’s decision to build a relationship with us means that, in addition to the full exchange in Chessington, clients across our London portfolio of eight data centre facilities will be able to connect via "satellite" Virtual Points of Presence.

"This relationship with LINX is made possible by the existence of the Digital Realty network ecosystem. We also very much look forward to helping support an important physical diversity of footprint for the exchange beyond the current concentration of city-based deployments."

LINX connects over 550 ASNs from 61 countries around the world. Through LINX the members are able to reach 85% of the total global Internet, making it the one of the most connected Internet Exchange Point in the world.

LINX’s CTO, Richard Petrie, said: "As a member-owned world leading exchange point we only choose partners who can help us deliver secure, reliable and essential services to the largest networks on the planet. Digital Realty is a core partner in helping us continue to provide these services to our membership."
