LINX Member take first 100GE port at JEDIX

Saudi Telecom Company (STC) and the London Internet Exchange (LINX) have announced that Limelight has provided a Letter of Intent (loi) that they will take the first 100GE port at JEDIX.

JEDIX, the KSA Internet Exchange powered by LINX, is situated in Jeddah. The agreement, which is subject to finalising a commercial agreement, will also see Limelight deploy its first KSA node in STC’s datacentre MG1 (MENA Gateway) as part of forming a new partnership with STC.

“With the creation of JEDIX we believe this will help increase the flow of internet traffic within the KSA and the surrounding region. Therefore a new CDN PoP will help improve the delivery of Internet content,” said Limelight.

STC and LINX stated that they are very much looking forward to working with Limelight in support of their new node and the betterment of the KSA internet experience.

Enquiries about connecting at JEDIX are being taken now. To find out more about the exchange click here.
