Console Connect has signed a new partner contract with the London Internet Exchange (LINX) to resell services at their interconnection point in the US.
LINX launched LINX NoVA, their Internet Exchange Point (IXP) in the data centre dense region of Northern Virginia back in 2014. Based out of four data centres across Ashburn, Reston, and Manassas, LINX NoVA has over 60 networks connected. The connected networks range from large content delivery networks to smaller internet service providers, as well as gaming platforms and enterprise organisations.
Already present in London as a member of LINX, Console Connect on board as an official ConneXions Reseller Partner of LINX back in 2021 to complement the launch of their new IXaaS product.
IXaaS enables users to provision, pay and manage their global connectivity and remote peering through one simple, automated service via a single management portal. The Console Connect platform is interconnected to more than 20 IXPs worldwide using its own private high-performance network.
Halil Kama, Interconnection Specialist for LINX says;
“We have been working closely with Console Connect for a couple of years now. They are a great partner to have at LINX, a true advocate for our community and what we do. We are pleased to see them join LINX NoVA and with their keen interest to resell this location from the start, we are excited for the future!”
The ConneXions Reseller programme at LINX allows networks to acquire a reseller port and dedicate this to offering remote peering as an additional service to their customers. Networks present at any of Console Connect’s global PoPs will now be able to access LINX in London and LINX NoVA in the US, and start peering with other networks or consume other LINX services.
