Core-Backbone Takes First 400GE Order!
Core-Backbone were the first to place an order for the new 400GE service. Based in Germany, they operate an international, secure, and high-availability network around the world and have been fast to adopt 400GE services at IXPs across Europe.
Andreas Goetz, Head of Sales and Marketing for Core-Backbone said: “We are happy to be the first customer at LINX deploying a 400G port at the exchange. This helps us to improve our network quality and provide our customers with extended services. LINX is an important player for us, due to its strategic location, connected through several submarine cables with Americas and Africa. Lately we have replaced three 100Gbps exchange ports with one 400Gbps, which has right now the biggest port-size in the whole market.”
Jennifer Holmes, LINX CCO added: “We are really excited to be rolling out the 400GE service to our members and thank Core-backbone for snapping up the first order! We are readily delivering this service in London now and taking any enquiries for 400GE at any of our other interconnection platforms across the UK and US.”
