Activation of a new PoP in Jaguar Network MRS01 in Marseille

POP France-IX Jaguar Networks
Jaguar Networks Datacenter Marseille
Our Marseille presence has been extended with the installation of a Juniper EX9214 in Jaguar Networks MRS01 datacenter.

With this latest deployment, our infrastructure in Marseille becomes more redundant and the members can choose to be connected via two distinct PoPs. Our PoP in Jaguar Networks is linked by a double dark fiber abduction to the Interxion PoP.

The initial capacity for interconnecting the 2 PoPs is 2x40 Gbps (easily upgradable thanks to the DWDM architecture put in place).

This is the first step in a more global evolution of France-IX's infrastructure in Marseille which will offer:
-  A higher density of 10Gbps ports
-  The possibility to connect 100Gbps ports
-  An architecture with uniformed engineering rules (MPLS/VPLS in all PoPs)

In October, our PoP in Interxion MRS1 will also be upgraded with a Juniper EX9214 switch as well.

RIPE - France-IX co-study on the French traffic paths

Map of the internet traffic in France

In case you missed our general meeting, where Emile Aben from RIPE NCC and Arnaud Fenioux from France-IX co-presented their co-lab on the Atlas and RIS projects, you can read the sum-up article of it.

The study shows that over 27% and 33% of the IPv4 and IPv6 paths respectively go through France-IX infrastructure (statistics based on 755 RIPE Atlas probes in place in France and a RIPE Atlas anchor connected to France-IX equipment).
