UK-based Layer 2 carrier IX Reach, which operates its own MPLS network in the North America and Europe, has added over 15 new members to the France-IX internet exchange.
IX Reach offered a free 100MB connection to France-IX for a limited time during which more than 15 companies took the opportunity to open up their network into the French hub and have become the latest members of France-IX.
"To bring more than 15 companies to an internet exchange in a period of less than two weeks is almost unheard of", said IX Reach founder and CTO Stephen Wilcox. France-IX has over 200 members and peak traffic of over 160 Gbps making it one of the largest IXPs in France. IX Reach provides capacities ranging from 100 Mbps to multiple 10 Gbps from any on-net location to France-IX, opening up the country to the rest of Europe and North America.
