AMS-IX, MDXi to Build Nigerian IX

August 24th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Over the past decade we have seen a major shift in the ecosystem of global internet exchanges from the massively centralized to the globally decentralized. This week plans were announced for another IX, this time in Nigeria via a partnership between AMS-IX and MDXi.

AMS-IX and MDXi have signed a memorandom of understanding to set up an IX in the Nigerian capital of Lagos. The IX will be based on AMS-IX’s platform and housed at MDXi’s Lagos data center, from which MDXi will target the interconnection needs of the West African region as a strategic partner and reseller for AMS-IX.

MDXi is a subsidiary of Equinix, and also operates locations in Cote d’Ivoire and Ghana. Meanwhile, AMS-IX has been steadily expanding its reach around the world but is of course best known for its flagship IX in Amsterdam.  Lagos is certainly a natural hub for the region’s interconnection.
