LINX launched its IXP Reseller programme last year. This service will allow networks to connect to their network via a third part exchange such as NaMeX, thus giving the member network access to the array of benefits and services that LINX has to offer. The connection is made using one of LINX's existing resellers meaning the new member has just a single invoice to pay.
NaMeX are hosting their next annual meeting in Rome on 3rd July with the Italian peering market high on the agenda. This event will be a great opportunity for the Italian networks to learn more about the benefits of peering with LINX in London.
Maurizio Goretti, CEO at NaMeX underlines that “This new collaboration between two not for profit and member based IXPs represent an increased value for both exchanges and their affiliates.”
LINX Chief Marketing Officer, Kurtis Lindqvist, added, “We are very excited about this new partnership which has a number of mutual benefits for both LINX and NaMeX. The IXP Reseller facility strengthens the service offering of NaMeX allowing them to offer networks in their region use of a convenient connection point to the UK.”
LINX is one of the largest member-owned Internet Exchanges in the world, with over 750 member networks connected. It provides members with resilient and faster network connections as well as guidance on the latest public affairs issues.
