Berlin's Neutral Internet Exchange scales peering infrastructure

Coriant, a global supplier of open, disruptive, and hyperscale networking solutions for service providers and web-scale Internet operators, has announced that the Berlin Commercial Internet Exchange (BCIX), Berlin´s Internet Exchange Point, has selected the Coriant Grooveâ„¢ G30 Network Disaggregation Platform to scale its distributed peering infrastructure as demand for high-bandwidth interconnect capacity in the capital of Germany grows exponentially, the company said.

Connecting major data center sites across Berlin, the Coriant solution will enable BCIX to deliver high-capacity neutral exchange services, including 100G Data Center Interconnect (DCI) services that can be deployed quickly, easily, and cost-efficiently.
