Telehouse & London Internet Exchange mark 20 years

London’s Docklands global internet hub.


Telehouse and the London Internet Exchange (LINX) said their 20 years of collaboration made the capital’s docklands area one of Europe’s main connectivity hubs.

The colo firm said LINX was the first Internet Exchange to deploy a 100MB switch in 1996 and also the first exchange to introduce 10G Ethernet operation.

Telehouse said "as the partnership grows innovation continues to be a central focus", and that it will be expanding its presence in London with a Telehouse North Two data centre.

The facility will incorporate the world’s first Vertical Indirect Adiabatic and Evaporative cooling system, with a design PUE of 1.16.

It will deploy 100G routers to cut latency proximity and plans to boost interconnects.

John Souter, CEO of LINX said: "The relationship with Telehouse has enabled us to transform London’s Docklands into one of the world’s leading global internet hubs. This partnership is only going to grow in importance as the introduction of 100G technology takes hold and the UK requires ever greater connectivity and capacity as traffic grows."

Hiroyuki Soshi, MD of Telehouse Europe said: "The partnership between Telehouse and LINX has driven innovation and progress in the UK and worldwide over the past 20 years. The construction of North Two will further drive the industry to reach new heights and allow businesses to grow exponentially."
