The internet exchange operator DE-CIX has found three new markets to expand its IX footprint into. The lucky destinations are just to the north of DE-CIX's Frankfurt roots in the Nordics.
DE-CIX says it will be opening IX platforms in Norway, Denmark, and Finland. In Norway and Denmark they will be working, at least in part, with Bulk Infrastructure, which operates data center facilities in the Oslo metro area and in Kristiansand up in Norway as well as in Esbjerg, Denmark. Other partners remain unnamed so far, including those in Finland, perhaps being saved for future announcements.
Missing from this list of course is Sweden, which normally gets more of the attention when it comes to bandwidth in Scandinavia than its neighbors, but which perhaps already has enough IX infrastructure for now. Each of the new exchanges will be integrated back into DE-CIX's international interconnection ecosystem, which includes 10 IXs in central and southern Europe and 5 IXs in Europe as well as infrastructure in the Middle East and Asia.
