Michelle Reid of Telehouse Europe Presented with Special LINX Award

24th November 2017

At the 99th member meeting of the London Internet Exchange (LINX) on 20th November, Michelle Reid of Telehouse Europe was presented with the Conspicuous Contribution to LINX Award.

LINX launched its network services at Telehouse Europe in 1994, when the London Exchange was first formed. Michelle has worked closely with LINX during her entire career at Telehouse spanning more than 20 years, to further develop the exchange’s network services at the Telehouse London Docklands campus.

As LINX has grown, so has Telehouse in London.  Telehouse launched Europe’s first purpose-built carrier neutral colocation facility, Telehouse North in 1990. Since then, the Docklands campus has expanded with the addition of three data centres, including the new Telehouse North Two data centre which opened last year.

LINX CEO, John Souter, said;  

"It is to Michelle's credit that she really understood the role that LINX plays generally, and how having LINX in their buildings plays such an important role in establishing the Telehouse Docklands campus into one of the most connected places on the planet. We are grateful for her faithful support, and think it appropriate to recognise her in this way."

Michelle Reid from Telehouse Europe said;

“I am honoured to have received this award from LINX and to have played a role in supporting LINX over the years. Telehouse’s long-standing relationship with LINX has contributed towards the development of the highly connected data centre ecosystem at Telehouse Docklands. This in turn provides LINX members and our customers with a low latency and resilient environment to support the high volumes of Internet traffic flowing through the campus.“

First presented in 2006, the LINX Award has so far been given to seven recipients: Nigel Titley, Dr Richard Clayton, Clive Feather, NIX.CZ and CZ.NIC for the BIRD route server project, Raza Rizvi and former long-standing LINX Chairman, Grahame Davies.
