AMS-IX New York to Use Sabey Data Centers’ IGX Networks to Provide Extended Cross Connects in Manhattan

Sabey Data Centers, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owners and developers, and AMS-IX, one of the world’s leading Internet exchange operators, have announced that AMS-IX New York will use Sabey’s IGX Networks to provide extended cross connects (ECCs) from 375 Pearl Street to both 60 Hudson Street and 32 Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan.

This arrangement will allow networks and carriers at both carrier hotels to connect to AMS-IX New York at Sabey’s Intergate.Manhattan data center at 375 Pearl Street.

AMS-IX’s subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc., and Sabey have reached commercial terms and are ready now to accept customer orders.

John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “By leveraging Sabey IGX Networks, Sabey provides ECCs on their private, managed dark fiber network that connects 375 Pearl Street to 60 Hudson Street, 32 Avenue of the Americas and 111 8th Avenue. Networks and carriers in those buildings can connect to Sabey at several meet me rooms in each building.”

Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX, said, “Sabey Data Centers’ IGX Networks is a great opportunity for us to get more value from our point-of-presence at Intergate.Manhattan. This arrangement enables us to improve AMS-IX New York’s accessibility to potential customers and increase its value to existing customers.”

Mr. Sabey added, “By partnering with Sabey Data Centers, AMS-IX will have a very compelling value proposition for networks in both 60 Hudson Street and 32 Avenue of the Americas that they could not reach before. To our benefit, we believe that these same networks will be interested in the space, power and telecom infrastructure that 375 Pearl Street offers.”

AMS-IX launched its New York point-of-presence within Intergate.Manhattan in April, 2014. At the time, it was the only distributed and neutral Open-IX certified Internet exchange in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area.

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors, and other market parties that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model in the US. The ultimate objective of Open-IX is to reduce interconnection complexity and associated costs in this country, which have been more complex and higher than in Europe, where the preferred Internet exchange model is more common.

Problem at the AMS-IX platform

Earlier today there was a problem at the AMS-IX platform, which occurred during maintenance activities. The problem has been solved now. As a result of the failure, part of the Internet traffic on our platform was hindered and some websites weren’t accessible. Because our Internet traffic graphs couldn’t be updated during the failure, it seemed as if all Internet traffic was affected, but this wasn’t the case. It is possible that some parties will have to restart their sessions to be fully up and running again.

Our apologies for the inconvenience.


Storing op het AMS-IX platform

Eerder vandaag was er een storing op het AMS-IX platform. Deze storing is ontstaan tijdens onderhoud door onze engineers, en is inmiddels weer hersteld. Door de storing liep een deel van het internetverkeer problemen op en waren sommige websites niet bereikbaar. Door de storing werden onze grafieken met de weergave van het internetverkeer niet geüpdatet; hierdoor leek het alsof al het verkeer was weggevallen. Dit was dus niet het geval. Het is mogelijk dat sommige partijen hun sessies weer moeten opstarten om weer helemaal goed bereikbaar te zijn.

Onze excuses voor het ongemak.

AMS-IX USA Inc. Showcases Chicago Expansion and Market-leading Achievements at ITW 2015

Recently Launched Internet Exchange in Chicago Coincides with ITW 2015 in Chicago May 10-13, 2015

AMS-IX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange, announces its participation at International Telecoms Week (ITW), the annual meeting point for the global wholesale telecommunications community. The AMS-IX global team will be on-site to discuss several market-leading achievements in the U.S., including the growth of its New York and Bay Area exchanges, the addition of a Point of Presence (PoP) in Chicago, IL, and the appointment of Phil Matte as Sales Director of its U.S. subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc. 

AMS-IX New York and AMS-IX Bay Area are displaying strong customer and traffic growth. In the first quarter of 2015, AMS-IX Bay Area has grown over 75 percent compared to December 2014 to over 12 Gbps with the addition of new customers such as Hurricane Electric, Netflix and Sonic.net. During the same time period, AMS-IX New York has grown to over 8 Gbps by onboarding customers such as Hurricane Electric, Pavlov Media and Fastmetrics. More customers are also expected to go live soon.

AMS-IX is the only neutral, OPEN-IX-compliant exchange located in three unique markets across the U.S., including AMS-IX New York, AMS-IX Bay Area and AMS-IX Chicago. Upon achieving OIX-1 certification for its Bay Area and New York platforms in 2014, AMS-IX plans to begin certification proceedings on its Chicago PoP mid-2015. In addition to two of its U.S.-based neutral Internet Exchanges receiving OPEN-IX certifications, the company’s Amsterdam, the Netherlands facility was recently recognized as the first international exchange to be OIX-1 certified.

In addition to its existing Chicago PoPs in CoreSite’s CH1 data center and the CME Group Cermak Hosting Facility, AMS-IX USA Inc. will provide added peering opportunities to the Chicago Internet and technology community by launching a new PoP location inside DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc.’s Chicago 2 (CH2) data center. The new PoP is expected to be live in the third quarter of 2015. AMS-IX Chicago is currently OIX-1-compliant, the third of AMS-IX’s U.S.-based IX platforms to meet the Association’s certification criteria and adhere to Open-IX IXP Standards Committee-derived standards of neutrality, openness, service offering, infrastructure and operations, reducing the complexity that restricts interconnection in fragmented markets.

In an effort to support its developing business in the U.S., AMS-IX appointed a new Sales Director, Phil Matte, as head of sales for its U.S. subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc., on April 21, 2015. In his role, Matte is responsible for driving the growth of AMS-IX USA Inc. by developing sales strategies and leading sales efforts for AMS-IX Bay Area, AMS-IX New York and AMS-IX Chicago.

Rezopole signataire de la déclaration #NiPigeonsNiEspions

Rezopole est signataire de la déclaration #NiPigeonsNiEspions contre la surveillance généralisée d'Internet en France, rejoignant ainsi plus de 800 autres sociétés, associations, et organisations de l'Internet et des Télécoms.

 

Rezopole, dont le rôle premier est de favoriser les échanges de données en local (sur ses IXP), se doit de signifier clairement ses très grandes réserves sur ce projet qui met en danger de manière sans équivoque les fondations mêmes de ses activités. En effet, l'interconnexion ne peut avoir lieu que lorsque un environnement de confiance existe jusque dans le cœur même du réseaux. Le simple fait qu'un tier puisse d'une manière ou d'une autre inspecter à sa guise et sans un encadrement fort le contenu quel qu'il soit des échanges entre les parties à l'interconnexion est propre à sérieusement affaiblir, voir détruire, cette confiance de façon irrémédiable. Les IXPs français vont voir partir leurs clients exogènes. Le peering européen se fera en dehors de la France et l'internet français se re-créera, lui aussi, en dehors de la France.

 

En prenant part à la déclaration #NiPigeonsNiEspions, Rezopole signifie ses doutes sérieux quant à la mise en place d'un panopticon numérique aussi inutile que dangereux pour l'ensemble de la société civile.

AMS-IX Now Officially Member of the 'Trusted Networks Initiative'

On Wednesday, April 15th AMS-IX, ASP4ALL, ING Bank, Logius, NL-ix and Rabobank signed the certificate making them a member of the 'Trusted Network Initiative'. The signing took place at the Innovation Room hosted as part of the Cyber Security Week on the Campus of The Hague Security Delta.

Since several months, the Internet has a new facility to prepare for extremely heavy DDoS attacks. The Trusted Networks Initiative makes it possible to temporarily close off part of the internet, while important websites still remain accessible to regular end users. This last resort Anti-DDoS solution is a newly developed additional mitigation approach, and is supported by many ICT stakeholders, all aiming to reduce the serious damage of these cyber attacks.

Steeds meer organisaties aangesloten bij Trusted Networks Initiative

Uitgever: The Hague Security Delta
Datum: 15 April 2015

Op woensdag 15 april hebben Rabobank, ING Bank, AMS-IX, NL-ix, ASP4ALL en Logius hun Trusted Networks Initiative partnerschap getekend. De ondertekening vond plaats op de campus van The Hague Security Delta tijdens de Innovation Room.

Sinds enkele maanden is deze nieuwe faciliteit beschikbaar die bescherming biedt tegen extreme DDoS aanvallen. Het Trusted Networks Initiative maakt het mogelijk om tijdelijk een deel van het internet af te sluiten en zodoende belangrijke websites beschikbaar te houden voor de belangrijkste groep gebruikers. Dit laatste extra redmiddel tegen DDoS aanvallen is een recent ontwikkelde techniek, ondersteund door een groot aantal ICT stakeholders. Zij willen hiermee de ernstige schade die dit soort cyberaanvallen veroorzaken verminderen.

Trusted Network Initiatief het laatste redmiddel tegen grote internet aanvallen.

Grote Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) aanvallen worden een maatschappelijk probleem. Naast de schade die DDoS aanvallen veroorzaken aan internet gekoppelde dienstverlening, hebben ze de potentie kritieke financile of overheidsdiensten tijdelijk onbereikbaar te maken, met grote gevolgen.

ING Bank, SNS Bank, Surfnet, XS4all, SIDN, ASP4all hebben zich als eerste aangesloten bij het Trusted Networks Initiative (TNI). De verwachting is dat andere grootbanken, kritische overheidsinstanties, ISPs, hosters en internet afhankelijke partijen spoedig volgen.

Het TNI heeft als doel vertrouwde netwerken op internet te onderscheiden en zo een vertrouwd internet te realiseren. Het voorziet aangesloten partijen van een laatste redmiddel tegen DDoS aanvallen. In geval van een grote of langdurige DDoS aanval, welke niet anderszins gemitigeerd kan worden, kan een partij zelf beslissen gebruik te maken van het Trusted Network. Het idee blinkt eigenlijk uit in eenvoud: net als in de middeleeuwen haalt men simpelweg de ophaalbrug op, om de vijand buiten te houden. Men verbreekt de verbinding met het globale internet om tijdelijk enkel bereikbaar te blijven via het Trusted Network.

Het idee is ontwikkeld door stichting NLnet en de NL-ix, dit is mede mogelijk gemaakt door The Hague Security Delta. Door de unieke opzet is TNI een gereedschap, dat ingezet kan worden door de grootste maar ook veel kleinere netwerken, zowel nationaal als internationaal. Naast een redmiddel biedt het initiatief ook een platform om aan verbetering van internet te werken en opsporing te verbeteren.

NL-ix organiseert drie informatie sessies in mei en juni om partijen bekend te maken met het TNI.

  • donderdag 7 mei 10:00 - 11:30
  • donderdag 21 mei 14:30 - 16:00
  • vrijdag 5 juni 10:00 - 11:30

Het aantal zitplaatsen is beperkt, daarom stellen wij voor om een persoon per netwerk te laten deelnemen. Laat ons via sales@nl-ix.net weten als je aan een van deze sessies wil deelnemen. Wij zullen de deelname persoonlijk confirmeren.

AMS-IX Amsterdam Receives OPEN-IX® Certification

Designation Marks the First Certified International IXP for Open-IX Association and the Third Certified Internet Exchange for AMS-IX

Amsterdam, the Netherlands / Cambridge, MA - April 7, 2015 - AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), the world’s leading Internet Exchange, and the Open-IX Association (OIX) announced today that AMS-IX Amsterdam has been awarded OPEN-IX® OIX-1. By receiving this certification, AMS-IX Amsterdam is the first neutral and distributed Internet Exchange outside of the United States to be OIX-1 certified.

The designation marks the first international Internet Exchange Point (IXP) to receive Open-IX certification, further expanding Open-IX certification outside of North America to points across the globe. Amsterdam is the third AMS-IX operated Internet Exchange to receive OIX-1 certification, joining AMS-IX New York and AMS-IX Bay Area in the United States. OIX-1 certification for AMS-IX Bay Area made it the first Internet Exchange worldwide to possess OPEN-IX-certified neutral and distributed Internet Exchanges in multiple U.S. markets. By receiving OIX-1 certification for its New York platform in early 2014, AMS-IX New York became the first Open-IX-certified neutral and distributed IX in the New York / New Jersey metro area.

AMS-IX Amsterdam provides a physical platform, distributed over 11 data centers in the greater Amsterdam area, at which over 700 international unique networks interconnect and directly exchange traffic. This number of connected networks makes AMS-IX Amsterdam the world’s largest Internet Exchange in terms of connected parties.

“We welcomed the announcement of the Open-IX Association to extend Internet Exchange certification across the globe and are excited to announce our third Open-IX certified Internet Exchange,” says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “This achievement sets a precedent for other global exchanges to become Open-IX certified and drive higher worldwide technical and operating standards for IXPs.”

AMS-IX Amsterdam has met all Open-IX certification criteria and adheres to Open-IX IXP Standards Committee-derived standards of neutrality, openness, service offering, infrastructure and operations, reducing the complexity that restricts interconnection in fragmented markets.

“We are pleased to name AMS-IX Amsterdam the very first international Open-IX-certified Internet Exchange,” remarks David Temkin, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Open-IX Association. “As our fifth Open-IX-certified Internet Exchange Point, AMS-IX Amsterdam’s OIX-1 designation marks yet another momentous event for Open-IX, initiating a new era of setting superior IXP standards not just within the U.S., but also around the world.”

The Open-IX Association is a 501(c)(6) non-profit industry association formed to promote better standards for data center interconnection and Internet exchanges. Organized and operated by volunteers from the Internet, the Open-IX Association aims to increase the reliability, resiliency and competitiveness of massive-scale interconnection for all. With the help of broad participation of interconnect and data center professionals, the association has successfully developed Internet Exchange and data center consensus-based community standards and certified 22 data centers and five exchanges since its establishment in 2013.

AMS-IX is a proud sponsor of the Open-IX Association Americas Interconnection Summit (AIS), taking place April 7-10, 2015 in San Diego, CA. To meet with the AMS-IX team at AIS, please email sales@ams-ix.net.

TrustCor Systems, First AMS-IX Caribbean Customer of 2015

TrustCor Systems S. de R.L., a provider of state-of-the-art privacy enhancing products and services for businesses and individuals, is the first customer in 2015 to connect to AMS-IX Caribbean in Curaçao. By connecting to this Internet exchange, TrustCor is able to reduce upstream connectivity costs and improve global efficiencies, fault-tolerance and quality of service.

The infrastructure of AMS-IX Caribbean allows customers to interconnect and exchange IP traffic, better known as peering, directly with all other AMS-IX Caribbean customers. This reduces the need to send traffic through a commercial transit provider. With many major global IP networks and other Internet players peering in AMS-IX Caribbean, a connection allows for easy and relatively inexpensive connectivity through BGP peering.

“Taking advantage of multiple international fiber routes is part of TrustCor’s long-term strategy to make eavesdropping on communications significantly more difficult for those intent on violating the privacy of our customers,” said Wylie Swanson, TrustCor’s Chief Technology Officer. “Increasing the diversity of our Internet access gives worldwide communication companies, and our customers, more options to reach our services through many different paths. By peering at AMS-IX Caribbean, TrustCor is taking another step towards protecting the privacy of our international customers.”

AMS-IX Caribbean saw considerable growth during the previous 15 months. The peak traffic number increased by 76% from 3.8 Gb/s at the end of 2013 to 6.7 Gb/s in March 2015. Currently, 13 customers are connected to AMS-IX Caribbean.

AMS-IX Bay Area Receives OPEN-IX® Certification

Designation Affirms AMS-IX as First Internet Exchange Organization to Receive OPEN-IX Certification Across Multiple U.S. Platforms

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) and its U.S. subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc., announce today that the AMS-IX Bay Area Internet exchange has been awarded OIX-1 certification by the Open-IX Association (OIX). AMS-IX is the first Internet exchange organization worldwide to have OPEN-IX®-certified neutral and distributed Internet exchanges in multiple U.S. markets.

AMS-IX Bay Area has met all OPEN-IX certification criteria and adheres to Open-IX IXP Standards Committee-derived standards of neutrality, openness, service offering, infrastructure and operations, which reduces the complexity that restricts interconnection in fragmented markets. AMS-IX also received OIX-1 certification for its New York platform in early 2014, becoming the first Open-IX-certified neutral and distributed Internet Exchange in the New York / New Jersey metropolitan area.

“AMS-IX is pleased to announce the OPEN-IX certification of our second U.S. Internet exchange, AMS-IX Bay Area,” says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “Achieving OPEN-IX certification affirms to our business customers that they are obtaining the fastest, most stable and cost-effective Internet peering services available on the market today.”

AMS-IX Bay Area provides a physical platform, spanning from Digital Realty’s 365 Main Street facility in San Francisco to CoreSite’s SV1 facility in San Jose, where organizations meet to exchange Internet traffic in a stable, fast and cost-effective manner between one another. AMS-IX Bay Area builds on the neutral and distributed formula of AMS-IX Amsterdam, the world’s largest Internet connectivity hub with approximately 700 connected parties and a peak Internet traffic rate of more than 3 Tb/s.

“We are pleased to welcome AMS-IX Bay Area to the Open-IX community,” remarks David Temkin, Co-Founder and Chairman of the Open-IX Association. “The designation is a milestone not only for AMS-IX but also Open-IX, marking the third OPEN-IX-certified Internet Exchange in the U.S. This certification is a further step in the direction of reducing interconnection complexity and enhancing related efficiencies in North America”.

The Open-IX Association is a 501(c)(6) non-profit industry association formed to promote better standards for data center interconnection and Internet exchanges. Organized and operated by volunteers from the Internet, the Open-IX Association aims to increase the reliability, resiliency and competitiveness of massive-scale interconnection for all. With the help of broad participation of interconnect and data center professionals, the association has successfully developed Internet Exchange and data center consensus-based community standards and certified 22 data centers and three exchanges since its establishment in 2013.

(NYSE: DFT), a leading owner, developer, operator and manager of enterprise-class, carrier-neutral, large multi-tenant wholesale data centers, today announced that AMS-IX USA Inc., a subsidiary of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), has expanded its relationship with DFT by executing a Letter of Intent (LOI) to build and operate an AMS-IX Chicago Point-of-Presence (PoP) in DFT's Chicago 2 (CH2) data center. Expected to be live in the third quarter of 2015, CH2 will be the only location in the Chicago suburbs to offer this service.

The addition of AMS-IX Chicago in DFT's CH2 data center will provide DFT customers with the ability to exchange their IP traffic with other members on the distributed exchange in a stable, fast and cost-effective manner. AMS-IX Chicago builds on the neutral, member-owned and distributed principle of AMS-IX, which is the world's largest Internet Exchange with more than 700 connected members and a peak Internet traffic rate close to 3.5 Tb/s.

"AMS-IX was considering a location outside of downtown Chicago, and we are pleased that they selected DFT, providing our customers peering options previously not available to them," said Vinay Nagpal, DFT's Director of Carrier Relations. "DFT's customers at our existing CH1 data center and our new CH2 data center will be able to connect to the AMS-IX Chicago node using DFT's underground conduit system and dark fiber."

"DFT has proven to be a great partner for AMS-IX by facilitating easy and cost-effective interconnection for its customers to connect to the AMS-IX New York deployed at DFT's New Jersey data center," said Job Witteman, AMS-IX's Chief Executive Officer. "We are pleased to expand our relationship with DFT and look forward to a successful partnership in Chicago."

AMS-IX's subsidiary AMS-IX USA Inc. has established distributed Internet Exchanges in New York/New Jersey, the Bay Area and Chicago. AMS-IX, based in Amsterdam, also deploys international Internet Exchanges in Hong Kong, Caribbean and East Africa.

CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center solutions across the US, announced that AMS-IX USA Inc., a subsidiary of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) in Amsterdam, has established an AMS-IX Chicago Point-of-Presence (PoP) in CoreSite’s CH1 data center. This PoP enables both companies to provide additional peering opportunities to the Chicago Internet and technology community. AMS-IX’s Chicago deployment follows its deployment of a PoP in CoreSite’s Silicon Valley market in December 2014.

AMS-IX Chicago provides a physical platform where organizations can meet to exchange Internet traffic in a stable, fast and cost-effective manner. AMS-IX Chicago builds on the neutral and distributed formula of AMS-IX, which is the world’s largest Internet connectivity hub with approximately 700 connected parties and a peak Internet traffic rate of close to 3.5 Tb/s.

“CoreSite’s secure, network-rich Chicago data center is the perfect location for us to further grow AMS-IX Chicago and expand our choice of peering opportunities,” said Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “With years of experience in operating high-performance data center and colocation facilities in the United States, we see CoreSite as a trusted and reliable colocation partner.”

CoreSite’s CH1 facility is strategically located in downtown Chicago, providing access to low-latency network connections to the city’s financial, healthcare, media and other enterprises. Enabling that access, CoreSite’s CH1 data center hosts over 50 network and cloud service providers, supported by the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange and CoreSite’s commitment to excellence in customer service.

“Peering exchanges are an integral part of the Internet, and AMS-IX Chicago will bring another valuable option to CoreSite customers in the Chicago market,” said Brian Warren, SVP Product and Marketing for CoreSite. “AMS-IX has a proven strategy of building industry-leading Internet Exchanges around the world, and we look forward to working with AMS-IX in Chicago as we have in the Silicon Valley.”

Another successful year for Amsterdam Internet Exchange in 2014

Internet traffic on AMS-IX increased by 30%

AMS-IX, the world’s leading Internet Exchange, had a successful year in 2014. For the third year in a row, more than 100 organisations connected to the AMS-IX platform of which 90% originated outside the Netherlands. In total, AMS-IX has almost 700 members and customers. Last year, the Internet traffic on AMS-IX increased by 30%. This is slightly more than Cisco predicted in its ‘Visual Networking Index’ for the global Internet traffic during peak hours. In this report, Cisco predicts a yearly growth of 28% in the period 2013-2018.

Ever more and still increasing Internet traffic
In 2014, the total Internet traffic volume at AMS-IX increased by 28% until 7.1 Exabyte (7+ million Terabyte). For example: one Terabyte of music is enough to listen continuously for more than three years. In September, a new data transfer speed record of 3 Terabit per second (Tbps) was reached. Furthermore, the IPv6 traffic rate quadrupled in the past two years: from 6 Gigabit per second (Gbps) in 2012 till 24 Gbps in 2014.

Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX: “This is the third year that we welcomed more than 100 new organisations. Our partners had an important part in this: 74% of our new members and customers came in through a partner, compared to 68% in 2013. By far, most of these members and customers come from abroad: 60% are from other European countries, 30% from other regions. This shows that the Netherlands plays a crucial role in the worldwide digital economy – thanks to our digital infrastructure.”

Telx adds AMS-IX New York to its Facility at 111 8th Avenue

Partnership Increases Internet Peering Opportunities for Customers

Telx®, a leading provider of global interconnectivity, data center solutions and cloud enablement services, and AMS-IX USA Inc., a subsidiary of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), today announced they have partnered to open an AMS-IX New York Point of Presence (PoP) within Telx's NYC2 data center facility at 111 8th Avenue.

AMS-IX New York provides a physical platform, deployed within five data center facilities, where parties can meet to exchange internet-related traffic with one another. Together with Telx’s growing customer base and interconnection capabilities, the two companies are able to offer reliable, fast, and cost-effective internet peering services to their end-users and business customers within a secure environment.

This partnership enables AMS-IX New York and Telx to provide customers with additional peering opportunities to other connected parties on the platform, including those customers that are located in other data center facilities, such as nearby NYC1 at 60 Hudson Street and NYC3 at 32 Avenue of the Americas. These two facilities, along with NYC2, comprise the “The NYC Trifecta” in Manhattan, offering seamless connectivity and providing small, medium, and enterprise businesses with access to the same network-rich interconnections regardless of their location. In addition, the Trifecta acts as a central hub for leading global service providers to access physical connection points to the world’s telecommunications networks.

"With several potential and existing AMS-IX customers within Telx’s data center facilities, NYC2 is the perfect location for us to expand the AMS-IX New York platform and further grow our community," said Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. "With over ten years of solid experience and customer satisfaction, Telx offers AMS-IX incredible value with this partnership.”

“The partnership between AMS-IX New York and Telx provides our mutual customers with greater optionality at decreased network costs and improved performance with the assurance of 100 percent uptime and 24-hour connectivity provisioning,” said Chris Downie, Chief Executive Officer at Telx. "With Telx’s broad portfolio of customers across a range of industries, we are able to connect AMS-IX with potential new business opportunities throughout the US, expanding their reach and bringing more value to our customers"

Wederom mooie groei voor Amsterdam Internet Exchange in 2014

AMS-IX, het grootste internetknooppunt ter wereld, heeft een succesvol jaar gehad in 2014. Voor het derde opeenvolgende jaar zijn er meer dan 100 partijen aangesloten op het platform van AMS-IX, waarvan 90% buiten de Nederlandse grenzen komt. In totaal zijn er bijna 700 aangesloten klanten en leden. Afgelopen jaar groeide het internetverkeer op AMS-IX met 30%. Dit is iets meer dan Cisco in haar ‘Visual Networking Index’ heeft voorspeld voor het globale internetverkeer tijdens piekuren. Daarin voorspelt Cisco een jaarlijkse groei van 28% over de periode 2013-2018.

Steeds meer en steeds sneller internetverkeer
Het totale internetverkeersvolume binnen AMS-IX is in 2014 met 28% gegroeid tot 7,1 Exabyte (ruim 7 miljoen Terabyte). Ter illustratie: één Terabyte aan muziek is al genoeg om meer dan drie jaar continu muziek te luisteren. In september werd ook een nieuwe piek in de snelheid van het internetverkeer gehaald: toen werd voor het eerst de grens van 3 Terabit per seconde (Tbps) doorbroken.

Bovendien zag AMS-IX het IPv6-verkeer in de afgelopen twee jaar verviervoudigen: van 6 Gigabyte per seconde (Gbps) in 2012 tot 24 Gbps in 2014.

Job Witteman, CEO van AMS-IX: “Dit is het derde jaar dat we weer meer dan 100 nieuwe partijen hebben mogen verwelkomen. Onze partners hebben daarin een belangrijke bijdrage gehad: 74% van onze nieuwe klanten kwamen namelijk via een partner ten opzichte van 68% in 2013. Het overgrote deel van deze klanten en leden komt uit het buitenland: 60% uit andere Europese landen, 30% uit de rest van de wereld. Dat laat zien dat Nederland dankzij onze digitale infrastructuur een cruciale rol speelt in de wereldwijde digitale economie.”

What does the member/customer think of AMS-IX?

Every year we conduct a customer survey, in which we ask both our members and customers to rate our services, offerings and activities as well as share information about their business profile and (future) activities. The results give us valuable insights in possible trends, what we need to improve and where we can continue in a similar manner. In this article we will share the most important results.

A total of 77 people filled out the customer survey (75 in 2014). Of these respondents most originate from the Netherlands (32%) and Germany (10%), followed by Italy, the United Kingdom and France. Compared to last year’s survey, new countries in the list are China and South Africa.

Overall, AMS-IX as a company has scored very well. We have achieved almost 8.5 out of 10 points. More specifically, the individual departments Network Operations Centre (NOC), Customer Service, Marketing, Sales and Finance were also rated well. The performance of NOC on, amongst other activities, engineering competence, trouble ticket support and speed of response to requests all have received around 8.5 out of 10 points. Respondents have rated Customer Service a full 9 out of 10 points and the other three departments more than 9 out of 10 points.

Our members and customers were also asked to select the three most important attributes for connecting to AMS-IX. The most important attribute is the number of connected parties, directly followed by number of routes and reliability of the platform. The ability to have a say in the AMS-IX Association was not selected by any of the respondents. They seem to value the other attributes more, including cost-effectiveness and neutrality & independence.

Chart Q5 150120

When asking specifically about the AMS-IX membership, 27% of the respondents have indicated this as very valuable, compared to 37% last year. Another 45% has stated the membership as valuable, even though they don’t vote.

This year, fewer respondents are thinking about upgrading (28%). The number has decreased by 11%, compared to last year’s survey. A good reason for this result could be that many upgrades were carried out last year. The total net customer capacity added in 2014 is close to 4 Tbps. Of the respondents thinking about an upgrade most have said they will add a capacity of 10GE.

Chart Q4 150120 2

A new customer survey will land in our customer/member’s inbox by the end of 2015. In the meantime, we will work on maintaining or even improving the level of quality towards our (future) connected parties.

AMS-IX Announces New Gold & Silver Partners

Partners are a strong driver of AMS-IX’s international growth in 2014

Equinix, IX Reach and EvoSwitch have received the AMS-IX Gold Partner status, of which Equinix was the first to reach this position. Hibernia Networks, Lepida SpA and Sofia Connect have become AMS-IX Silver Partner.

Mark Cooper, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of AMS-IX: “Our partners play an important part in the growth of AMS-IX. Last year, 74% of our new customers joined us via a partner, compared to 68% in 2013. We were the first Internet Exchange in the world to introduce a partner program, making them an integral part of our strategy. It enabled us to increase their involvement and reward successful partners, and it allowed them to expand their product and service portfolio with the largest professional and neutral exchange in the world.”

AMS-IX introduced its partner program in response to a growing demand from parties worldwide, wanting to connect to AMS-IX. Since the introduction, AMS-IX welcomed customers from, among other regions, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South America. It is not always easy to connect to Western Europe from these regions, but through the AMS-IX Partner Program, they were able to easily connect remotely to one of the most international Internet Exchanges in the world.

About the AMS-IX Partner Program
The AMS-IX Partner Program allows qualified third parties to offer the AMS-IX service remotely, resulting in higher margins and reduced levels of administration. Partners can resell AMS-IX ports from where their infrastructure is connected to the AMS-IX colocations in Amsterdam. The benefits of the AMS-IX Partner Program for (new) customers:
• One-stop shop service: partner provides IP transport, AMS-IX peering port and customer relationship, including sales, contracts, billing and first line customer care support.
• No investment in equipment and no Point-of-Presence (PoP) in one of AMS-IX’s colocations needed.
• Lower port capacity available (from 100 Mbps)

Gold and Silver Partner requirements
To be qualified as an AMS-IX Gold Partner, resellers had to sell more than 20 applications or 100GE (Gigabit Ethernet) of port capacity – or more than 300GE in the case of colocation partners – in 2014. To be named Silver partner, resellers had to sell more than 10 applications or 50GE of port capacity – or 150GE in the case of colocation partners. The status is valid until the end of 2015. In January 2016 AMS-IX will review who will be qualified as an AMS-IX Gold or Silver Partner.

14.01.2015 In taking over the SITELiX project, the Czech peering node NIX.CZ enters the Slovak Internet connection market

Prague/Bratislava, 14th January 2014 – NIX.CZ Association, the Czech Republic‘s neutral IX node, is in the process of taking over the running of the SITELiX Project, one of Slovakia’s two peering nodes. This will give its members and customers the possibility to operate in a modern and expanding peering node in Slovakia, which will function on the same principle as the Czech NIX.CZ. At the same time, the Slovak Internet connection market will acquire a partner with vast experience in the field of inter-operator data transit. NIX.CZ will also try to bring to Slovakia other key international players already active in the Czech Republic in order to further develop the Slovakian market. The SITELiX project remains a separate and neutral peering node for Slovakia and will not be integrated into the Czech peering node.   Marián Okres, the project manager of SITEL, which had previously been running SITELiX, said: “By taking over the SITELiX project, NIX.CZ is giving SITEL, a Slovak company, the opportunity to fully concentrate on its key activities, which include running its own datacentres and building, operating and servicing optical networks. On the other hand, NIX.CZ Association is going to focus on running and developing one of Slovakia’s two peering nodes, which is good news above all for our customers. The Czech peering node is one of the most important in the field and is bringing years of experience and solid know-how of Internet interconnection into the project.”   An agreement between the representatives of SITEL and NIX.CZ was signed before the end of last year. At the moment, the project is being handed over, a process which should be completed in the following months. The SITELiX project will be managed from Prague, with the current and future customers of SITELiX becoming customers of NIX.CZ. According to the Association’s plan, in the future SITELiX should follow the same operating model and principles as the Czech peering node.   “I am very happy that we can offer our experience and projects to entities currently operating in Slovakia,” the Director of NIX.CZ Martin Semrád said. “Once the SITELiX project has been handed over, we will begin to develop and expand its infrastructure to match the standard offered by NIX.CZ in Prague. The openness, stability and transparency of the Slovak peering market, which are our priorities, are also important for the functioning of Czech companies active in the Internet field. Many of them are connected not only in the Czech Republic, but also in Slovakia. Some of these networks are our members and have previously expressed interest in getting the same standard of service they are used to in the Czech Republic from our Eastern neighbours.”     More information and future growth strategies of the SITELiX project will be presented during the Peering Day conference that will take place in the Slovak capital in March 2015. The conference will bring together experts on Internet interconnection from Europe, Asia and America.   About NIX.CZ NIX.CZ, z.s.p.o. (association of legal entities) is an association of Czech and foreign internet service providers who wish to mutually interconnect their networks. The Association is currently the largest neutral IXP (Internet Exchange Point) in the Czech Republic and ranks among the ten largest IXPs in Europe. The seamless functioning of the node is ensured by meticulous planning, expert technical solutions and 24/7/365 technical support. Since 2003, the Association also support peering activities using the Ipv6 protocol.   About SITEL SITEL s.r.o. [Ltd] was established in 1993 exclusively as a provider of services in the construction of metallic and optic fibre networks. As the name of the company suggests (Company for the construction of Integrated Telecommunications), it provides a wide range of services in the design, implementation and maintenance of telecommunication technologies. The company owns SITELPOP, the first neutral data centre at Slovakia and its largest interconnection node today, and operates SITELNET, a fibre network in Bratislava and Košice, supported by a 7/24 FLM service.

Orange Polska joins AMS-IX Partner Program

Orange Polska, the leading supplier of telecommunications services in Poland, is the latest partner to join the reselling program of the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX). Orange Polska is now enabled to remotely connect parties to peer at this peering hub.

AMS-IX has introduced the AMS-IX Partner Program to allow third parties to resell AMS-IX ports anywhere they have infrastructure connecting to the AMS-IX locations in Amsterdam. The program is aimed to provide easier access to AMS-IX for new (remote) customers through the AMS-IX partners and consequently increase the value of the exchange through peering benefits such as more networks, more traffic and more routes.

Orange Polska owns the largest technical infrastructure in Poland and operates in all segments of the Polish telecom market. Orange Polska provides, among other, data transmission services using Ethernet technology all over the country, fixed voice, fixed broadband access and Internet access. Orange Polska is also the main provider of leased lines in Poland, with a standardised transmission band. Key clients include other telecom operators, government ministries, financial institutions and ISP providers.

"Connecting to such a high traffic exchange platform as AMS-IX, will allow us to offer more attractive and competitive services to our customers", said Michał Reutt, Wholesale Marketing & Strategy Director of Orange Polska

“Orange Polska is an excellent addition to our group of partners”, said Mark Cooper, CCO of AMS-IX. “Orange Polska’s presence in Poland is very strong, giving a large group of Internet parties easier access to AMS-IX from many regions in the country.”

Internet in Curaçao is Performing Better

The Internet download speed in Curaçao is constantly improving. According to ICT Pulse, a blog for discussing topical Information and Communications Technology (ICT) issues from a Caribbean perspective, the fastest download speed across 27 Caribbean countries was recorded in Curaçao at 15.94 Mbps. Furthermore, Curaçao was ranked 54th globally (total number of countries: 192). ICT Pulse has retrieved this data from Internet speed tests conducted by Ookla in September 2014.

Previous studies of the Internet Society (ISOC) show that Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) improved the Internet ecosystem in the Caribbean. In 2008, AMS-IX helped found the Caribbean Internet Exchange (CAR-IX), which was rebranded to AMS-IX Caribbean in 2012. After its launch download speeds for users in the region have been increasing considerably.

La carte des Data Centers en France

Rezopole publie sa première carte des DataCenters en France (Décembre 2014).

Les DataCenters (centre de traitement de données en français) sont des sites physiques sur lequel sont localisés tous les outils nécessaires à la gestion d'un système d'information (SI) d'entreprise ou d'organisation : serveurs, bases de données, logiciels, sécurité, backup, données, outils télécom etc. De nombreuses entreprises disposent de leur propre DataCenter n'hébergeant que leurs propre SI.

Nous avons constitué ici une carte des DataCenters mis à disposition des entreprises par des professionnels du secteur. Nous les appellerons les DataCenters commerciaux (par opposition aux dataCenter privés, construits, opérés et dédiés à une seule entreprise). Les DC commerciaux louent des services d'espace physique avant tout (salles, cages, baies, 1/2 baie, 1/4 de baies). Ils vendent également la sécurité, l'électricité redondée, ainsi que de la climatisation. En leur sein, des entreprises louent pour elles-mêmes des espaces, mais de très nombreux prestataires installent également leurs équipement pour fournir un service à d'autres entreprises.

Il n'est pas facile de récolter des informations sur les DataCenters. De nombreux sites proposent des espaces privés et on retrouve ainsi plusieurs "DataCenters" dans un Datacenter (DC). Rezopole publie aujourd'hui une carte mise à jour comprenant 149 site identifiés et validés. On retrouve sans surprise une forte majorité de DC en région parisienne (55 soit 36 % des DCs français). Vient ensuite la Région Rhône-Alpes avec 21 DC (14 % des DC). Toutes les régions ou presque ont au moins un DataCenter, parfois plusieurs.

Nous nous sommes volontairement limités à des DataCenters disposant réellement d'une offre quantitative (minimum 30 baies). De nombreux sites sont également utilisés comme DataCenter mais ils sont plus à comparer avec un shelter telecom. Il faudrait ainsi descendre au niveau du DSLam cuivre pour compter tous les sites, ce qui n'aurait que peu d'intérêt.




Voir en plein écran


À ce stade, cette carte n'est probablement pas exhaustive à 100 %. Si vous disposez d'informations complémentaires ou contradictoires, vous pouvez nous les faire passer, nous corrigerons aussitôt notre carte. Par avance merci.
Si vous souhaitez disposer des données nous ayant permis de réaliser cette carte, vous pouvez nous en faire la demande. On ne publie pas encore en OpenData, mais nous allons y arriver.

Nieuwe stichting DINL waakt over Nederlandse digitale infrastructuur

De nieuwe stichting Digitale Infrastructuur Nederland (DINL) is vanaf vandaag de spreekbuis van- en het aanspreekpunt voor de Nederlandse digitale-infrastructuursector. Het initiatief is een samenwerking tussen AMS-IX, DHPA, ISPConnect, NLnet, SIDN en SURFnet. De betrokken partijen hebben zich ten doel gesteld de economische groei in Nederland te stimuleren door de online economie veilig en betrouwbaar te faciliteren.

De Nederlandse digitale-infrastructuursector vormt het hart van de Nederlandse online economie en speelt een sleutelrol in het wereldwijde internet. Met een omzet van c.a. 1,18 miljard Euro, directe- en afgeleide werkgelegenheid van ca. 20.000 banen binnen honderden bedrijven, een groei van circa 9% per jaar en een bijdrage van meer dan 5% aan het bruto nationaal product is de sector een drijfveer voor de Nederlandse economische groei.

DINL verbindt de aanbieders van digitale infrastructuur in Nederland: datacenters, de hosting en cloud computing industrie, telecom voor de digitale-infrastructuursector en internetconnectiviteit. Ook is er voldoende ruimte voor stichtingen en verenigingen die de sector faciliteren.

Naast voorlichting aan overheid, media en bedrijfsleven zal DINL bijdragen aan thema's en discussies die gerelateerd zijn aan de groei van de online economie. Waaronder onderwijs, informatieveiligheid en het bestrijden van cybercrime. Het bestuur van de nieuw opgerichte stichting bestaat uit de vertegenwoordigers van de eerder genoemde zes aangesloten organisaties. De directie wordt gevoerd door de heer M. (Michiel) Steltman.

Michiel Steltman, Directeur van DINL: “Uit het recent door Deloitte uitgevoerde onderzoek naar de rol en betekenis van Nederlandse digitale infrastructuur blijkt dat deze snel groeiende sector een frontrunner is in Europa en grote kansen biedt voor economische groei en innovatie. Een herkenbaar aanspreekpunt voor die sector is daarom essentieel. Zo kunnen we helderheid brengen in tal van thema’s en ontwikkelingen rondom het internet en inhoudelijk bijdragen aan groei en innovaties die gebaseerd zijn op digitale infrastructuur.”

De verwachting is dat in 2015 andere organisaties die actief zijn in deze sector aansluiting zullen vinden. De stichting zoekt actief de samenwerking met andere stakeholders in de sector.


Nederlandse digitale-infrastructuursector levert significante bijdrage aan internet-economie

Nederland blijft één van de koplopers in Europa in snel groeiende digitale-infrastructuursector

Nederland is een koploper in de Europese digitale-infrastructuursector. Bovendien draagt de Nederlandse digitale infrastructuur significant bij aan onze internet-¬economie die op zijn beurt weer zorgt voor groei in werkgelegenheid. Dat blijkt uit een onderzoek dat is uitgevoerd door Deloitte, in opdracht van AMS-IX, DHPA, ECP, SIDN, NBIP, Nederland ICT, NLnet en Rabobank. Het onderzoek richt zich specifiek op de internet exchange, datacenter housing en hosting sector die – samen met telecommunicatie – de digitale infrastructuur vormen. Uit het onderzoek van Deloitte naar deze sector in 2013 bleek al dat Nederland beschikt over een sterke digitale infrastructuur, die in het licht van de snelle groei van het wereldwijde internet moet worden beschouwd als Nederlands derde mainport.

Koploper
Het belang van onze digitale infrastructuur wordt steeds groter. De Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) blijft 's werelds grootste internet exchange. Alleen al in de laatste twaalf maanden groeide het internetverkeer van deze internet exchange met maar liefst dertig procent. De regio Amsterdam behoudt ook zijn positie als één van Europa’s belangrijkste hotspots voor co-locatie (datacenters) met een jaarlijkse groei van ruim zes procent. In Europa behaalt Nederland tevens een sterke tweede plaats als het gaat om hosting-diensten.

Impact op de Nederlandse economieDe housing en hosting sector binnen de Nederlandse digitale infrastructuur is een kapitaalintensieve sector met een jaarlijkse omzet van € 1,18 miljard en investeringen van € 380 miljoen. Er werken in deze sector ongeveer 7.600 mensen. Circa 11.700 banen komen voort uit de sectoren die direct betrokken zijn, zoals bouw en toeleveranciers, en uit bestedingen van werknemers. De werkgelegenheid groeit met ca. acht procent per jaar.

Digitale infrastructuur als fundament voor digitale economieDe omvang van de werkgelegenheid in de digitale-infrastructuursector zelf is niet torenhoog, maar werkt wel sterk door in de veel bredere digitale economie en samenleving. De digitale infrastructuur is een onderdeel van het hele ecosysteem en daarmee één van de ‘drivers’ voor de internet-economie. De Nederlandse internet-economie wordt geschat op 5,3 procent van het BBP en groeit jaarlijks met negen procent. Het onderzoek wijst uit dat de aanwezigheid van een sterke digitale infrastructuur een belangrijke aanjager is voor de werkgelegenheid in e-commerce en cloud-diensten. "In theorie zou een vrije internet-economie zich ook los van de lokale datacenters en hosting kunnen ontwikkelen, omdat internetdiensten ook in andere landen kunnen worden gehost", zegt Michiel Steltman, directeur van de DHPA. "Maar ons onderzoek toont juist aan dat er een sterke correlatie is tussen de groei van de lokale internet-economie en de aanwezigheid van een sterke nationale digitale-infrastructuursector." Steltman legt uit dat dit te maken heeft met een 3-tal effecten die elkaar onderling versterken:
  • de online sector en de digitale-infrastructuursector profiteren beide van dezelfde onderliggende groeifactoren
  • Vraag-effect: groei in de internet-economie veroorzaakt een groei in de vraag naar digitale infrastructuur
  • Aanbod-effect: de aanwezigheid van een sterke digitale infrastructuur trekt vervolgens weer aanbieders aan van online producten en diensten naar Nederland

Het onderzoek wijst daarmee uit dat een sterke digitale infrastructuur bijdraagt aan groei van de digitale economie als geheel. Landen met een sterke digitale-infrastructuursector hebben meer economisch voordeel door de resulterende innovaties en productiviteitsgroei.

Aanbevelingen voor het optimaal benutten van sterke positie in digitale infrastructuurDe onderzoekers formuleren zes aanbevelingen om de sterke positie van Nederland te behouden, verder te benutten en de economische groei te stimuleren:
  • Ondersteun investeringen en ontwikkelingen in de digitale infrastructuur. Een rem op investeringen en blokkades in de vorm van extra nationale of Europese wet- en regelgeving heeft negatieve invloed op economische groei, omdat de sector een directe aanjager is voor de internet-economie en de digitale samenleving.
  • Zorg voor stimulerende maatregelen voor het gehele online ecosysteem. Stimuleer niet alleen de groei in digitale infrastructuur, maar ook de direct daaraan gerelateerde sectoren want deze versterken elkaar.
  • Stimuleer in het bijzonder innovaties die afhankelijk zijn van de Nederlandse digitale infrastructuur. Groeikansen zijn te vinden in e-commerce, online diensten en door het stimuleren van cloud-innovaties bij Nederlandse bedrijven.
  • Stimuleer de keuze voor Nederland als vestigingsland voor multinationals die digitale diensten aanbieden. De internationale concurrentie is sterk en de digitale infrastructuur wordt voor bedrijven steeds belangrijker voor hun online activiteiten. Door het aantrekken van buitenlandse bedrijven die intensief gebruik maken van onze digitale faciliteiten, kan het Nederlandse online ecosysteem worden versterkt.
  • Moderniseer de kaders voor wet- en regelgeving, gebaseerd op een bredere visie. De omvang en groei van de digitale economie verlangt moderne en eigen kaders, hetgeen onnodige wet- en regelgeving kan voorkomen.
  • Zorg voor betere aansluiting van onderwijs op de behoeften uit de markt. De snelle groei van de digitale economie en de impact die deze heeft op onze gehele samenleving, vereist een proactieve aanpak om de broodnodige digitale vaardigheden in alle aspecten van het onderwijs terug te laten komen.

Rotterdam: Internationaal kruispunt naar de wereld

Omwille van de sterke opkomst van Rotterdam als alternatief voor Amsterdam, en door de snelle groei van kwalitatief hoogwaardige datacenters en infrastructuur, is de samenwerking tussen NL-IX en SmartDC tot stand gekomen.

De snelle groei is hoofdzakelijk te danken aan de ideale ligging van Rotterdam op de Internationale glasvezelkaart. Dit wordt kracht bijgezet doordat grote accesspartijen met miljoenen eindgebruikers (40% van alle eindgebruikers in NL), Rotterdam gebruiken als tweede Internet hub. Vooral voor de belangrijkste routes richting Brussel en Parijs, maar ook voor zeekabels richting de Verenigde Staten via Londen, is Rotterdam een belangrijk knooppunt binnen de Nederlandse grenzen. Dit heeft als gevolg dat veel internationale glasvezelcarriers routes door Rotterdam hebben lopen. Het is dan ook niet vreemd dat NL-ix juist in Rotterdam een nieuwe core wilde bouwen.

Om deze groei verder te kunnen versterken hebben we besloten om een nieuwe Rotterdamse core te bouwen binnen het SmartDC datacenter, en gezien de centrale ligging in de Van Nellefabriek (UNESCO monument) en de aanwezigheid van alle voorzieningen, was onze keuze voor dit hightech datacenter snel gemaakt. vermeld Jan Hoogenboom, CEO van NL-ix. Wij zijn heel blij met de samenwerking met SmartDC. Door de enorme groei van het Internetverkeer, groeit in de gehele Rotterdam Metro de behoefte aan lokale en internationale peering. Peering is een belangrijke methode om internetverkeer tussen Internetproviders en/of bedrijven onderling uit te wisselen.

Door de komst van de Rotterdamse NL-ix core binnen ons data center, kunnen we onze bestaande en nieuwe klanten een passende oplossing bieden voor hun steeds toenemende connectiviteitseisen, verklaart Richard Boogaard, Managing Director van SmartDC. Deze implementatie heeft als bijkomend voordeel dat er een volwaardige Internet exchange actief is binnen Rotterdam. Hierdoor hoeven klanten niet meer te koppelen met de Amsterdamse Internet exchange om met Nederlandse ISPs een peering connectie op te bouwen. Doordat de NL-ix haar netwerk core binnen SmartDC op heeft gebouwd, kunnen onze klanten profiteren van het enorme capaciteitsaanbod om koppelingen met andere netwerken te maken binnen onze Meet-me-Rooms.

Over SmartDC
SmartDC bouwt en beheert carrier-neutral datacenters in Nederland en is uniek door de fysieke aanwezigheid van vele grote Tier-1 en Tier-2 IP Transit carriers. SmartDC biedt ht ideale connectiviteitsplatform door de internet exchanges en carriers naar de klant te brengen. Door het grote aanbod resulteert dit in een hogere kwaliteit, lagere kosten en hoogst mogelijke betrouwbaarheid. SmartDC Rotterdam is het grootste carrier-neutral datacenter van Zuid-Holland. Het ISO27001 gecertificeerde datacenter is gevestigd in de kenmerkende Van Nellefabriek; een unieke locatie die sinds juni 2014 op UNESCOs werelderfgoedlijst vermeld staat. De hoogwaardige stroomvoorziening voorziet SmartDC, naast de overvloed aan beschikbare ruimte, van d ingredinten om de komende decennia vrijwel ongelimiteerd te kunnen groeien.

Over NL-ix
De Neutral Internet Exchange, is een van s werelds grootste Internet Exchanges met meer dan 450 leden. NL-ix levert op haar kwalitatief hoogwaardige internationale netwerk diverse diensten aan Internet service providers, IP carriers en bedrijven waarbij het gebruik van Internet een bedrijfskritsche rol speelt. Zo kunnen zij op het NL-ix netwerk dataverkeer uitwisselen met diverse andere partijen door te peeren op de Internet Exchange of onderling dataverkeer transporteren tussen verschillende datacentra in verschillende Europese steden. Het bereik en de...

Türk Telekom International New Reseller AMS-IX

Türk Telekom International has partnered with AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), the world’s leading Internet Exchange. Türk Telekom International is a leading telecommunications operator in Central and Eastern Europe, Turkey, Caucasus and the Middle East. The company provides a full range of Internet and data services, infrastructure, data center and voice services to incumbents, alternative carriers, mobile operators, cable TV companies, Internet service providers and corporate customers.

By joining AMS-IX’s partner program, Türk Telekom International significantly increases its presence and services in Western Europe. As an official AMS-IX reseller, Türk Telekom International is able to resell AMS-IX ports anywhere the company has infrastructure connected to the AMS-IX colocations in Amsterdam. Under the program, Türk Telekom International is certified to offer the AMS-IX service remotely and provide its customers with increased peering benefits.

Cengiz Oztelcan, Turk Telekom International CEO, summarizes: “Becoming an active participant of the AMS-IX’s Partner Program provides vast added value to our existing services in the region and is part of a continual effort by TTI to bring the best offerings to our customers. TTI’s bridging position between WE and ME will be even stronger with the AMS-IX partnership. Working with AMS-IX allows TTI to maintain its leadership position in a very competitive industry”.

Mark Cooper, CCO of AMS-IX, adds: "Continuous growth is what defines the value of an Internet Exchange. Our partner program helps AMS-IX to achieve this goal. We believe Türk Telekom International can help us expand and enhance our international and diverse Internet community. Türk Telekom International's technical excellence, good service and customer care reputation is also in line with our values."


04.11.2014 New record for data transfer speed set at 338.4 Gb/s

Shortly after 8 p.m. last night, Czech Republic’s national peering point, NIX.CZ Association, again exceeded its previous maximum data traffic rate, setting the new record at 338.4 Gb/s. The ‘magical’ 300 Gb/s threshold was only surpassed relatively recently, on Sunday 21st September.  “Of course we are very pleased that the data transfer rate has been increasing. Yesterday’s new record represents a more than 10% increase in the volume of data transferred since we exceeded the 300 Gb/s threshold one and half months ago,” the technical director of the Association Adam Golecký said. “In general, data transfer rates do rise more quickly during the fall months. However, compared to last year this year’s increase has been more pronounced.”

Launch of a New Weapon in the Fight against DDos Attacks

27 October 2014 Cyber Security, Critical Infrastructure

As of today, a new solution to counter DDoS attacks is available in the Netherlands. The Trusted Networks Initiative allows organisations to temporary close their website for foreign internet traffic in order to defend itself against an attack and at the same time still be accessible to Dutch consumers.

The Trusted Networks Initiative will be presented to the community at the Holland Strikes Back event on 28 October 2014 in Amersfoort. During this event leading speakers will present the most important Dutch innovations for the battle against cyber criminality. For more information about this event click here (in Dutch).

The idea for the Trusted Networks Initiative was developed by internet exchanges NL-ix and the NLnet foundation, in collaboration with The Hague Security Delta. The main goals of the initiative are to limit the economic damage caused by DDoS attacks and the inconvenience to consumers.

The product we developed with partners from the financial sector and the internet operators sector is also an innovation that can be marketed globally and can put the Netherlands on the map internationally in the field of cyber security, following Rob de Wijk, General Director The Hague Security Delta.

Trusted Networks Initiative

The Trusted Networks Initiative helps to fight and mitigate security incidents and risks by identifying and certifying trusted networks on the Public Internet. It enables participating networks to route (called Trusted Routing) Internet traffic to other Trusted Networks independently from the untrusted part of the Internet, either only during emergencies as last-resort measure, or permanently for risk mitigation.

The initiative is not contrary to the principles of net neutrality because every organisation can decide for itself whether or not their website should be closed off from part of the internet to defend itself against a DDoS attack.

AMS-IX USA Inc. opent point-of-presence in Chicago

AMS-IX USA Inc. breidt verder uit om de ontwikkeling van het neutrale en gedistribueerde internet exchange-model in de VS te stimuleren

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) heeft bekend gemaakt dat AMS-IX USA Inc. de eerste point-of-presence (PoP) heeft geopend in Chicago. AMS-IX USA Inc. opende deze PoP in de CME Cermak Hosting Facility in Chicago. Net als de recent geopende internet exchanges in San Francisco en New York, is ook dit peering platform volledig gebaseerd op de neutrale en gedistribueerde formule van AMS-IX in Amsterdam, op dit moment de grootste internet connectivity hub ter wereld. AMS-IX heeft bijna 700 aangesloten partijen en een piek in het internetverkeer die onlangs de grens van 3 Tb/s heeft doorbroken.

De opening van AMS-IX Chicago past perfect binnen de strategie van AMS-IX om internetknooppunten te bouwen op wereldwijde hublocaties. Op deze manier kan meer groei worden bewerkstelligd voor AMS-IX in Amsterdam. Bovendien voegt een neutrale en gedistribueerde internet exchange veel waarde toe aan de interconnectiemarkt in de omgeving van Chicago door de complexiteit in deze markt en de bijkomende kosten te reduceren.

Door een internet exchange verspreid uit te rollen in Chicago en de nabije omgeving, wordt meer diversiteit geboden binnen de interconnectie-markt in deze regio. Daarnaast bevindt Chicago zich op een belangrijk knooppunt voor internetverkeer en zijn er veel bedrijven gevestigd die zich richten op content, digital media en financiële diensten. Met name dit laatste is erg belangrijk voor AMS-IX. Binnen de faciliteit van CME Cermak bevinden zich veel organisaties die zich richten op de financiële markt. Dit is een interessante doelgroep voor AMS-IX, aangezien financiële organisaties steeds meer afhankelijk zijn van het internet.

"Wij bieden de interconnectie-markt in de Chicago-metropool een waardevol alternatief doordat deze internet exchange erop gericht is om de geografische diversiteit te vergroten, de connectiviteit te vereenvoudigen en de kosten te verlagen. Dit bewerkstelligen we door middel van een sterke internetinfrastructuur en een gedistribueerd en neutraal model", zegt Job Witteman, CEO van AMS-IX. "Bovendien geeft AMS-IX Chicago een impuls aan de economie in deze regio door het aantrekken van meer business, het stimuleren van zowel de groei van werkgelegenheid en innovatie."

"Wij zijn tevens verheugd om samen te werken met CME Group", vervolgt Witteman. "Zij bieden ons de mogelijkheid om een nieuwe doelgroep te bedienen, zoals de spelers op de financiële markten die sterk afhankelijk zijn van het internet en datacenters."

AMS-IX USA Inc. Launches Internet Exchange in Chicago

Establishment of Alternative Interconnection Model in Chicago Metropolitan Area

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) announces that its U.S. subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc., has partnered with CME Group, the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, to open the first Point of Presence (PoP) of AMS-IX Chicago in Chicago, IL. Located in the CME Group Cermak Hosting Facility at 350 E. Cermak in Chicago, this Internet Exchange builds on the successful and proven business model of AMS-IX in Amsterdam which, with almost 700 connected parties and a peak Internet traffic rate of more than 3 Tb/s, is currently the world’s largest Internet connectivity hub.

AMS-IX Chicago is the third deployment of AMS-IX USA Inc., following on from AMS-IX New York and AMS-IX Bay Area. It brings an affordable, neutral, and distributed Internet Exchange model to the Chicago area, delivering the interconnection market in this region enormous value by decreasing complexity and associated costs. The distributed model makes it possible for connected parties of AMS-IX Chicago in one data center to exchange traffic with connected parties in another data center. AMS-IX is working on an additional PoP for AMS-IX Chicago with another data center provider. The second regional PoP is expected to go live in the beginning of 2015.

By deploying an Internet Exchange in the CME Cermak hosting facility, this leading data center facility now offers additional peering opportunities to its customers – providing geographic diversity and improving connectivity, reach and performance to end-users. This partnership also allows companies connecting to AMS-IX Chicago’s platform the opportunity to locate and/or expand their network presence within a secure and modern interconnection facility in downtown Chicago. With the establishment of this Internet Exchange partnership, CME’s content and financial services’ clients can expect to experience reduced latency and transit costs by peering directly with AMS-IX Chicago.

AMS-IX Chicago is OIX-1 (IXP Technical Standards) compliant, the third of its U.S.-based IX platforms to uphold the association’s commitment to increase the reliability, resiliency and competitiveness of massive scale interconnection for all.

“We bring the interconnection market in the Chicago metropolitan area a valuable alternative as this Internet Exchange aims to increase geographic diversity, simplify connectivity and reduce costs through a robust Internet infrastructure, and distributed and neutral model. Furthermore, AMS-IX Chicago helps strengthen the economy in this region by attracting more business, stimulating both job growth and innovation,” explains Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “We are pleased to partner with CME Group, who provides us the opportunity to reach a new target group such as financial market participants who strongly rely on the Internet and data centers for their business to operate.”

“The relationship between AMS-IX Chicago and CME’s Cermak Hosting Facility provides collective customers of AMS-IX Chicago with the connectivity, capacity and capability to interconnect and house their critical equipment in one of the world’s premiere data centers,” says Craig Mohan, Managing Director, Co-Location and Data Center Services at CME Group. “Tenants of CME’s Cermak Hosting Facility benefit from reduced transit costs by peering directly with AMS-IX Chicago. This means they also have the ability to peer with parties that are connected to the AMS-IX Chicago from another data center location.”

07.10.2014 NIX.CZ is taking part in the formation of a new peering node in Montenegro

From September 28th to October 4th, 2014 the 21st annual Infofest conference took place in Budva, Montenegro. The conference hosted a workshop as part of the efforts to create a new independent peering exchange in this Mediterranean country. The event was organized by ITU in co-operation with the local Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Society.  Among the invited guests were the representatives of organizations such as ISOC and those of the European peering nodes: INEX, SOX.RS and NIX.CZ.    Adam Golecký, the Technical Director of NIX.CZ, represented the Czech Republic and had this to say about the event: "Our colleagues from Montenegro work intensively on creating their own peering node in their county. This meeting was held to obtain information from the invited organizations in order to help their efforts. They particularly appreciate the neutrality of NIX.CZ, as well as our non-profit status, successful history and manifold experience. We are glad to help our colleagues from Montenegro in developing their peering node, and we are also delighted to share our experience with building a local Internet and telecommunications community".   NIX.CZ is perceived as a peering leader in Montenegro and the NIX.CZ Association is known for its ongoing commitment to creating and cultivating online communities, not only in the Czech Republic but also abroad. Our support of professional meetings such as the CEE Peeing Day and our participation at major events such as the European Peering Forum clearly indicate our commitment.

AMS-IX and HGC to Share Sales and First Line Customer Service of Hong Kong Exchange

Sales and first line customer service for AMS-IX Hong Kong is now both the responsibility of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) and Hutchison Global Communications (HGC). Until this summer, only HGC was responsible for sales, marketing and first line customer service. AMS-IX and HGC together founded AMS-IX Hong Kong in the beginning of 2012.

Asia was a new market for AMS-IX at the start in 2012. AMS-IX therefore decided to work with a partner who was well established and active in the region. In the meantime, AMS-IX could focus on the platform in Amsterdam.

"Next to operating the exchange, AMS-IX will now also handle the sales, first line customer service and marketing. By being fully responsible for all operations of AMS-IX Hong Kong, we can coordinate all activities more closely, as a result work more efficiently and further grow the exchange as well as further develop the interconnection market in the Hong Kong region", says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX.

"The Reseller Plus contract with HGC ended in May of this year", Job Witteman continues. "While HGC has been a valuable partner for AMS-IX by sharing their knowledge and bringing important customers to AMS-IX Hong Kong, we decided for the good of the exchange to also involve the AMS-IX sales team from now on."

Werkbezoek over Nederland als voorloper op het gebied van de digitale economie

Afgelopen maandag was een gezelschap van Tweede Kamerleden, hun persoonlijk medewerkers en vertegenwoordigers van de organiserende partijen (Stichting Internet Domeinregistratie Nederland (SIDN), Google, de Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), stichting Dutch Hosting Provider Association (DHPA) en LeaseWeb) te gast bij EvoSwitch AMS1 voor een werkbezoek.

Ons land heeft een sterke en omvangrijke hostingsector, een relatief goed klimaat voor startups in de online sector. En met de Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) hebben we het grootste internetknooppunt ter wereld. Het doel van het werkbezoek was om de Kamerleden te informeren over de kansen die Nederland heeft in de internationale digitale economie. En met elkaar van gedachten te wisselen over de uitdagingen die er zijn op het gebied van beleid, en wet- en regelgeving waarmee Nederland voorop kan blijven lopen. En waar kon dit beter, dan bij een van de tastbare symbolen van de Nederlandse digitale economie: EvoSwitch AMS1.

Nederlands internet: derde mainport voor de Nederlandse economie

Deelnemers aan het werkbezoek verkregen inzicht in hoe het internet werkt. Tevens werd er gesproken over de rol van Nederland in de internationale context, en over de impact van wet- en regelgeving op o.a. het vestigingsklimaat en het vertrouwen in de digitale economie. Uit onderzoek van Deloitte, in opdracht van AMS-IX, DHPA, Rabo en ECP, dat eind vorig jaar werd gepubliceerd, blijkt dat de Nederlandse digitale infrastructuur – na Schiphol en de Rotterdamse haven – de derde mainport van Nederland is. Ook blijkt het belang van internet voor de Nederlandse economie uit het rapport Global Enabling Trade Report 2014 van het World Economic Forum (WEF), waarin Nederland wordt geroemd voor zijn digitale infrastructuur. De Nederlandse digitale infrastructuur neemt hierbij een fraaie 3e plaats in.

De Nederlandse digitale infrastructuursector behoort duidelijk tot de top van de wereld en concurreert met Londen en Frankfurt. Onder andere het huidige open en neutrale karakter van de Nederlandse markt voor internetdiensten maakt Nederland een aantrekkelijke vestigingslocatie voor bedrijven in de digitale infrastructuursector.

Rondleiding maakt internet tastbaar

Tijdens de rondleiding door het datacenter werd zichtbaar gemaakt wat wetsvoorstellen fysiek betekenen. De aanwezigen werden daarbij meegenomen in de wereld van "Next Generation" Datacenter Infrastructuur. De aanwezigen waren enthousiast over dit werkbezoek en voor sommigen was het ook echt een ‘eye-opener’ dat deze hele aparte wereld schuil gaat achter het internet. De organisatie kijkt dan ook terug op een geslaagde dag.

Amsterdam Internet Exchange passeert grens van 3 Tbps

De Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) heeft de grens van 3 Terabits per seconde (Tbps) aan Internetverkeer doorbroken. Deze mijlpaal illustreert de leidende positie van het Amsterdamse peering platform binnen de IXP markt. Met bijna 700 aangesloten nationale en internationale partijen is AMS-IX momenteel de grootste Internet exchange ter wereld.

Op 14 september werd voor het eerst in de Nederlandse geschiedenis de piek van 3 Tbps (3000 Gbps) gehaald. Ter vergelijking: in september 2013 was deze snelheid nog 2.4 Tbps.

Voor deze groei zijn verschillende redenen aan te wijzen. De toename in videoverkeer, cloud toepassingen, online gaming en Internettoegang via mobiele apparaten is al een paar jaar gaande en deze vormen van online verkeer stijgen steeds explosiever. Voorbeelden van gaming partijen die in het afgelopen jaar zijn aangesloten, zijn Wargaming Interactive van het bekende spel World of Tanks en Riot Games die achter League of Legends zit.

“Wij zijn trots dat we deze mijlpaal hebben bereikt”, zegt Job Witteman, CEO van AMS-IX. “Het afgelopen jaar hebben zich opnieuw grote, internationale partijen bij ons aangesloten voor wie het Internet van vitaal belang is. Het dataverkeer dat via ons wordt uitgewisseld, blijft alsmaar groeien. In september 2010, bij het bereiken van de 1 Tbps grens, had ik niet gedacht dat we nu al deze 3 Tbps grens zouden doorbreken. Het laat zien dat de continue uitbreiding van ons netwerk, zowel qua aangesloten partijen, als locaties en technische ondersteuning zijn vruchten afwerpt.”


AMS-IX breaks 3 Terabit per second barrier

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) has broken the data transfer speed record of 3 Terabit per second (Tbps). This milestone underlines the leading position of the Amsterdam peering platform within the Internet Exchange (IXP) market.

The peak of 3 Tbps (3000 Gbps) that was reached on September 14 is an all time record for The Netherlands. Last year in September, this speed was 2.4 Tbps.

For this growth several reasons are to be found. The use of online video, cloud based infrastructures, online gaming and Internet access via mobile devices is growing rapidly the last few years. Examples of gaming providers that connected to AMS-IX in recent years are Wargaming Interactive, producer of the well-known game World of Tanks and Riot Games, that has produced League of Legends.

“Breaking this barrier makes us really proud”, says Job Witteman, CEO at AMS-IX. “In the past year some great, international organisations for who the Internet is of vital importance, connected to AMS-IX. The data traffic that is being exchanged via AMS-IX, keeps on growing. In July 2010, when we reached the barrier of 1 Tbps, we never expected to reach the 3 Tbps barrier this fast. This proves that the continuous expansion of our network, the increase of existing connections, adding exchange locations to our network and improving technical support is profitable.”

AMS-IX USA Inc. opent point-of-presence in San Francisco Bay Area

AMS-IX USA Inc. breidt uit met neutrale en gedistribueerde internet exchange

AMS-IX USA Inc. lanceert de eerste point-of-presence (PoP) van AMS-IX Bay Area in Digital Realty's 365 Main Street faciliteit. Digital Realty (NYSE:DLR) is een internationale aanbieder van datacenter- en co-locatieoplossingen. AMS-IX Bay Area is volledig gebaseerd op de neutrale en gedistribueerde formule van AMS-IX in New York en Amsterdam, op dit moment de grootste internet connectivity hub ter wereld. AMS-IX kent bijna 700 aangesloten partijen en een piek in het internetverkeer die bijna de grens van 3 Tb/s bereikt.

De opening van AMS-IX Bay Area past binnen de strategie van AMS-IX om internetknooppunten te bouwen op wereldwijde hublocaties. Op deze manier kan meer groei worden bewerkstelligd voor AMS-IX in Amsterdam. Bovendien voegt een neutrale en gedistribueerde internet exchange veel waarde toe aan de interconnectiemarkt in San Francisco door de complexiteit en de bijkomende kosten te reduceren.

In de regio San Francisco/San José bevinden zich veel potentiële klanten van AMS-IX. Bovendien is de regio rijk aan datacenters, wat het vestigen van een gedistribueerde exchange erg aantrekkelijk maakt. Een dergelijk exchange op basis van dit Europese model levert klanten een keuze aan connectiviteitsopties op. Ook hebben aangesloten partijen de mogelijkheid om internetverkeer uit te wisselen met aangesloten partijen in een ander datacenter. De regio biedt veel potentie, waardoor AMS-IX zich nu al oriënteert op het openen van een tweede PoP.

Door de aanwezigheid van een PoP in de 365 Main Street-faciliteit van Digital Realty in San Francisco kan deze co-locatiefaciliteit nu additionele peering-mogelijkheden aan zijn klanten aanbieden. De partijen die verbonden zijn met het platform van AMS-IX Bay Area hebben de mogelijkheid om hun netwerkconnectie aan te leggen en/of uit te breiden binnen een veilige, moderne en ruime interconnectiefaciliteit. Tegelijkertijd hebben zij te maken met lagere latency en transitiekosten doordat zij een directe aansluiting hebben met AMS-IX Bay Area.

AMS-IX Bay Area is opgezet als reactie op het Open-IX initiatief en is OIX-1 (IPX Technical Standards)-compliant. De OIX-2 (Data Center) gecertificeerde faciliteit van Digital Realty voldoet aan de technische en operationele standaarden voor datacenters die vaak vereist zijn vanuit de markt.

"De opening van AMS-IX Bay Area in San Francisco is een geweldige mogelijkheid voor ons om grote waarde toe te voegen aan de interconnectiemarkt daar", zegt Job Witteman, CEO van AMS-IX. "Wij bieden een betaalbaar, gedistribueerd Internet Exchange-platform. De opening was niet mogelijk zonder de samenwerking met Digital Realty, onze vertrouwde partner."

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) announced today that its U.S. subsidiary, AMS-IX USA Inc., is partnering with Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), a leading global provider of data center and colocation solutions, to expand and establish a Point of Presence (PoP) in Digital Realty’s 365 Main Street facility in San Francisco. AMS-IX Bay Area builds on the successful and proven business model of AMS-IX in Amsterdam and New York, which, with almost 700 connected parties and a peak Internet traffic rate close to 3 Tb/s, is currently the world’s largest Internet connectivity hub.

Leveraging its partnership with Digital Realty, AMS-IX Bay Area offers stable, fast, and cost-effective Internet peering services to business customers while building upon the company’s neutral and distributed formula.

This partnership also allows companies connecting to AMS-IX Bay Area’s platform the opportunity to locate and/or expand their network presence within a secure and modern interconnection facility in downtown San Francisco. With the establishment of this Internet Exchange partnership, Digital Realty’s Bay Area clients can expect to experience reduced latency and transit costs by peering directly with AMS-IX Bay Area.

Leveraging their collective Open-IX certifications, AMS-IX Bay Area, which is OIX-1 (IXP Technical Standards) compliant, offers the San Francisco Bay Area market a strong commitment to the association’s initiative to reduce the complexity and associated costs for interconnection, while Digital Realty’s OIX-2 (Data Center) certified facility ensures compliance with the technical and operational standards for data centers expected and often required by the industry.

Digital Realty General Manager of Colocation and Connectivity John Sarkis added, “The expansion of the AMS-IX / Digital Realty relationship from New York to San Francisco further strengthens and expands Digital Realty’s commitment to the Open-IX initiative. We look forward to continuing to provide our clients with the widest possible range of connectivity options.”

02.09.2014 The FENIX Project welcomes a new member - Casablanca INT

  Casablanca INT has become the seventh organisation to join the FENIX project, which tries to increase the capacity to defend against DoS and DDoS attacks that might target popular internet services in the Czech Republic. The company has joined the six existing members: ACTIVE 24, CESNET, CZ.NIC, Dial Telecom, Seznam.cz and O2. The FENIX Project was conceived by the Czech peering node NIX.CZ primarily as a reaction to the very intensive DoS attacks from March 2013.      "I am very happy to welcome another member of the NIX.CZ association among the project's participants. By joining, Casablanca INT has sent out a clear signal that it is one of the most technologically advanced and conscientious organisations in the field and committed to improving the security of the Czech internet. I believe that it will not be the last one to join in and that before long we will learn the name of the next key player of the Czech internet to connect its name with the FENIX Project," said Martin Semrád, the executive director of NIX.CZ.

ReTN Joins AMS-IX Partner Program

ReTN has become a reseller of AMS-IX in Amsterdam. The international network operator joins AMS-IX’s successful partner program to provide its wide range of wholesale and corporate clients with access to the exchange platform in Amsterdam.

By joining AMS-IX’s partner program, ReTN significantly increases its presence and services in Western Europe.

We believe that our customers can heavily profit from AMS-IX’s experience, quality platform and wide variety of connected networks,” says Tony O’Sullivan, Director of ReTN.

“ReTN is a well-known name in our industry and we are very pleased that the group decided to join our platform. I believe this collaboration will be beneficial for both parties.

Deutsche Telekom ICSS upgrades IPX connection on the AMS-IX Inter-IPX hub

When abroad, today’s mobile subscribers expect high-speed 3G or LTE data roaming services with best user experience. As an expert provider of IPX roaming capabilities, ICSS (International Carrier Sales & Solutions) ensures fast, secure IP exchange, especially in times of exponentially rising data volumes, and provides high-speed, high-quality solutions for mobile operators around the world. In line with this strategy, ICSS has upgraded its IPX interconnection capacity at AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), a central IP peering hub in Amsterdam where close to 700 Internet related organisations, including 20 IPX providers, interconnect with each other to serve their customers.

ICSS provides attractive, tailored services to mobile operators not only inside, but also outside of the Deutsche Telekom Group. The recent upgrade of the unit’s IPX connection at the central IP peering hub “AMS-IX” in Amsterdam to 2 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet once again proves ICSS’s commitment to enabling its customers to profit from its ability to successfully handle the fast, permanent increase in mobile data transport.

“Our focus is to provide our mobile operator partners with the seamless connectivity they need to ensure superior experience to their subscribers. The decision to upgrade our IPX connectivity at this central IP peering hub is a further module in our strategy to offer industry-leading IPX capacity for the benefit of our customers. They profit from extended global reach and end-to-end quality guarantee in times of ever-growing data volumes,” explains Holger Magnussen, Senior Vice President International Carrier Sales & Solutions.

Job Witteman, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), AMS-IX, comments: “We are happy to support ICSS with this IPX capacity upgrade at our IP Peering hub. ICSS is thus well-prepared to deal with the immense growth in LTE data volumes. This shows ICSS’s dedication to the future needs of its mobile operator partners and their subscribers – to provide them with the full advantages of the latest, next-generation applications for the best in user experience.”

New Networks at AMS-IX: Who, What, Where, When

More about AMS-IX’s new connected parties in first half of 2014

AMS-IX grew considerably in the first six months of 2014. A total number of 57 parties connected to the Internet Exchange, including organisations such as Riot Games, next layer, Telecom Egypt, Sony Online Entertainment and cloud hoster Digital Ocean. For an overview of all connections at the AMS-IX platform please check out the connected networks page on the corporate website.

To give you a better idea of AMS-IX’s newest additions in the first half of 2014, this article will go more in detail about their origin and type (member or customer). As many parties connect trough a partner or reseller this group will also be discussed.

When looking at the origin of the new networks, many of these connections originate from the Netherlands as well as the United States. Together they have a share of 28%. Even though 2014 has not ended yet, it is for the first time in years the Netherlands shares the number one spot with another country. Other countries present in the list, but not mentioned in the graph, include Aruba, Belize, Brazil, Ukraine and Mongolia.

New Connections Origin 2014 1

New Connections Origin Continent 2014 1

Organisations applying for a connection directly have the option to become a customer or a member of the AMS-IX Association. The only difference between the two is that members have the ability to vote during the AMS-IX General Meeting, and their representatives may be nominated for the AMS-IX Executive Board. A large part of the new connected networks, 77% in total, connected through a partner or reseller, which is more than in previous years (68% in first six months of 2013 and 57% in first six months of 2012).

Blogpost: Real Time Online Bidding is the Future. Connectivity is Now

As a stock trading firm you operate in a very volatile market. You have to immediately respond to what you see and make the right choice at the right time. You completely rely on accurate and real-time data. And then the network connectivity is lost...Bye bye profit.

OK, maybe this example is a bit dramatic, but it is almost the same thing real-time advertisement bidders have to cope with. Real-time advertising is an effective method that targets people whilst they are visiting a website. As soon as a user visits a website, a bid request is triggered that can include various pieces of data such as the user’s demographic information, browsing history, location, and the page being loaded. This request follows a journey from the publisher to an advertising exchange. This ad exchange submits the request and the accompanying data to multiple advertisers who automatically submit bids in real time to place their ads. This process repeats itself until every ad slot on the page is filled. Real time bidding transactions happen extremely fast: normally within 100 milliseconds from a user visiting a website.

So just like high frequency trading, digital advertising is a very exciting and fast activity. And also, just like on Wall Street, real time bidding involves computerized, algorithm-driven trading that allows for quick buying of ad impressions. In the background, connectivity also plays an immense role. Advertising opportunities are auctioned off in real time, so you better make sure connectivity is being prioritized.

When you are in the real time bidding market, like Brightroll, latency cannot be an issue. When connected to a public web, there is a realistic risk for latency challenges and network errors that can occur. BrightRoll is an advertising platform for reaching audiences across web, mobile and connected TV. The company powers digital video advertising for the world’s largest brands, including 85 of the top 100 US advertisers and 18 of the top 20 advertising technology companies. To ensure low latency, companies can use public peering via an Internet Exchange platform such as AMS-IX or through dedicated private peering links. For those assurances, Brightroll connected to AMS-IX.

However online advertising and real time online bidding exists for a while now, we see an extreme growth at the moment. With the increase of mobile advertising, real time (mobile) bidding also shows an explosive growth. On mobile platforms, real time bidding is extremely powerful, because customers take their mobile devices anywhere: shopping, at work, to school, to a restaurant, etc. By the time a customer opens a page on their device about the nearest coffee shop, you have already placed your bid. As long as your connection is all right, of course.

[NaMeX]: Article about NAMEX on "La Repubblica"

Following the articles appeared on the paper and online editions of "La Repubblica" newspaper [1][2] which contain false or inaccurate information about NAMEX, we want to reassure our members that no unauthorized access to our datacenter has taken place.

Reporters tried to access the building but were promptly stopped by reception personnel and then taken outside the building, all action took place in nearly 5 minutes, as documented by our internal video surveillance systems.

It is also false that such reporters have exchanged words with NAMEX personnel, as our personnel does not attend foreigners reception and its offices are located in another area of the building.

We remind our members that access security measures implemented  in our datacenter have been recognized by ISO 27001 certification as thy follow the highest standards and best practices.

AMS-IX East Africa - From Start to Finish

Preparation is everything. And that goes for the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point in Mombasa, Kenya as well. As information about delivery lead times in Kenya were not available, the project team decided to order the necessary equipment at the earliest opportunity, configure as much equipment in Amsterdam as possible and ship this to Mombasa directly after the configuration.

In the beginning of April, a delivery date for the equipment finally came through so engineers Michiel Appelman and Tom Visbeek of AMS-IX packed their suitcases and flew to Mombasa. Together with Barry Apudo of TESPOK, the Telecommunications Service Providers Association of Kenya that operates KIXP, they installed the platform in the SEACOM cable landing station. This peering platform consists of an MPLS/VPLS infrastructure comparable to the one in Amsterdam, and offers port capacities to networks of (Fast) Ethernet (E/FE), Gigabit Ethernet (GE), 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE), or multiples of these on the access devices. To provide more resilience in the customer connections at 10GE, these are terminated on a photonic cross-connect (PXC).

Installation time did not take long. After 7 days of hard work the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point was all set up and ready to go live.


First Traffic Being Exchanged at AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point

The AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point, which AMS-IX deploys together with KIXP (Kenya Internet Exchange Point), is taking off now! Google Inc. and Jamii Telecommunications Limited are exchanging traffic, with already a peak traffic rate of over 750 Mbps. In addition, several other parties have applied for a connection.

The partnership between AMS-IX and KIXP started in 2011 with the donation of Gigabit Ethernet equipment to Kenya and a training course for the engineers of KIXP at AMS-IX in Amsterdam. By doing this AMS-IX has helped strengthen the capacity, resilience and stability in the East African region.

In the second half of 2013, AMS-IX and KIXP decided to further extend their partnership with the start of a new regional Internet exchange in Mombasa, Kenya. They believe that AMS-IX’s expertise and global experience combined with KIXP’s knowledge of the Internet market and regulatory affairs in East Africa will help making this Internet exchange successful.

“It is great to see the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point become a reality with the first exchange of bits and bytes on its platform,” says Fiona Asonga, CEO of KIXP. “I’m looking forward to seeing this peering platform further grow and making Kenya the ICT hub in the East African region.”

AMS-IX Joins GSMA as Associate Member

The GSMA, which represents the interests of mobile operators worldwide, has added AMS-IX as an Associate Member. This membership gives AMS-IX the opportunity to contribute to the development of the mobile ecosystem by participating in working groups and projects as well as working closely together with other members.

AMS-IX has already worked together with the GSMA since the beginning of the 21st century. The GSMA asked AMS-IX for advice regarding an interconnectivity model for mobile operators similar to the Internet peering model. The result was GRX, a unique Global GPRS Roaming Exchange, which AMS-IX implemented on its platform in 2001. A few years later, the GSMA used the GRX model to develop IPX. AMS-IX was the first to define a service around IPX and offer a dedicated IPX exchange (Inter-IPX) and related carrier-grade SLAs.

Les inscriptions pour la demi-journée de restitution du baromètre 2014 sur la filière numérique sont ouvertes

 

L’édition 2014 du baromètre numérique Rhône–Alpes place au centre de ses réflexions la question de la filière numérique qui joue un rôle central dans l’ensemble de l’économie. Les technologies, produits et services numériques, sont aujourd’hui au cœur de l’innovation dans la plupart des activités industrielles et de services.

 

Au-delà de la dimension « économique » de la filière, le numérique est plus que jamais au centre des profondes mutations qui dessinent dès à présent les organisations et les modes de vies de demain tant chez les particuliers, que dans le monde des entreprises et des collectivités : mobilité, e-commerce, télétravail, e-santé, e-traçabilité, smartgrid, smarticity, e-procédures, e-government, open data…

 

Le 09 juillet 2014 de 14h00 à 18h00, la Région vous propose de venir échanger et débattre, à l’hotel de Région, sur ces sujets avec des personnalités qualifiées. Ce sera aussi l’occasion de découvrir les indicateurs extraits du baromètre TIC 2014 concernant la filière.

Akamai Signs On To AMS-IX New York

Presence at AMS-IX New York brings Akamai first connection to an Open-IX certified Internet Exchange

AMS-IX has announced that Akamai, the leading provider of cloud services, has become a member of AMS-IX New York. This peering platform is the only Open-IX certified Internet Exchange in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. Akamai has been a member of AMS-IX in Amsterdam for years and is also connected to AMS-IX’ exchanges in Hong Kong and Curacao.

Akamai is the leading provider of content delivery and cloud infrastructure services for the delivery of content and applications over the Internet. The connection to AMS-IX New York helps Akamai optimizing its services in the New York/New Jersey area. For Akamai, this is also the first live connection to an Open-IX certified exchange platform in New York.

The Open-IX Association (OIX) is an Internet community-derived effort to improve the landscape of Internet peering and interconnection in the United States. OIX encourages the development of neutral and distributed Internet Exchanges in North America and promotes uniform, cost-efficient standards of performance for interconnections backed by the Internet community. The association aims to promote common and uniform specifications for data transfer and physical connectivity and improves IX performance by developing criteria and methods of measurement to reduce the complexity that restricts interconnection in fragmented markets.

AMS-IX’ counterpart AMS-IX USA Inc. is running AMS-IX New York in collaboration with Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE: DFT), Sabey Data Centers and 325 Hudson. As one of the first neutral and distributed Internet Exchanges in North America, AMS-IX New York recently received the IXP OIX-1 Certification from the Open-IX Association.

“It is great to welcome Akamai to AMS-IX New York. Akamai has been a longstanding member and customer of AMS-IX and it is very valuable to us and other connected parties that they are selecting our exchange in New York/New Jersey to expand in the US market,” says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX.

“The US market is very important to us and we are very pleased to be able to increase our presence in this market together with a trusted partner like AMS-IX. We have great experiences working with AMS-IX in Europe, Asia and the Caribbean and are confident to find the same service levels in the US,” says Martin Hannigan, Director Networks and Data Center Architecture at Akamai.

325 Hudson Offers Connectivity to AMS-IX New York

325 Hudson, the New York carrier-neutral interconnection facility, is now offering connectivity to AMS-IX New York. This exchange platform builds on AMS-IX’s successful Internet exchange model in Europe, allowing multiple Internet service providers, content owners, cloud companies, and other Internet-related companies to interconnect via an open peering fabric.

By having a partnership with AMS-IX New York, 325 Hudson is able to offer efficient and cost effective peering services to its customers. The Open-IX Association supports these services as AMS-IX New York is the only Open-IX Association (IXP OIX-1) certified exchange in the New York and New Jersey Metropolitan area. With the peering services, network performance improves by accessing many networks directly at the exchange that otherwise would have taken several network 'hops' through other parties. The redundancy is served by having many routes at the exchange through which traffic can be sent.

“We are delighted to partner with AMS-IX to offer a neutral, reliable and cost-efficient interconnection platform to our customers,” says Hunter Newby, Joint Venture Partner at 325 Hudson. “With its experience and impressive global customer base, AMS-IX absolutely is the right partner for us.”

“325 Hudson is located at a strategically very interesting location in the heart of New York City. With its capacity and utilities, 325 Hudson is the perfect location for us to further grow our business in the US and to increase the diversity of our services offering,” says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX.”

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors, and other market parties that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet Exchange model in the US. The ultimate objective of Open-IX is to reduce interconnection complexity and associated costs in the US, which have been more complex and higher than in Europe, where the preferred Internet Exchange model is more common.

INEX Joins as Sponsor of Host in Ireland

The Host in Ireland Initiative’s Goal is to Educate End-Users about the Benefits of Hosting Digital Assets in Ireland

Host in Ireland, an industry-led initiative to promote Ireland as an optimum location to host digital assets, announces its sponsorship support from Internet Neutral Exchange Association Ltd.(INEX), the Internet Exchange Point for the island of Ireland. INEX serves as a major asset to companies looking to host digital assets in Ireland, providing high-speed, reliable and resilient IP traffic exchange facilities located throughout Dublin.

An important aspect of hosting digital assets is the connectivity that enables the communications. INEX is a member-governed, not-for-profit association that enables both Irish and international organizations to route IP traffic more efficiently, providing faster, more reliable and lower-latency Internet access for their customers and thereby facilitating the ‘Pipes’ of connectivity to and from Ireland. With over 95% of ‘eyeballs’ on the island of Ireland directly connected to INEX via their Internet service provider, INEX operates five Points of Presence across Dublin, including; Interxion DUB1 and Interxion DUB2 in Park West, Dublin 12; TeleCity Group in Kilcarbery Park, Dublin 22; TeleCity Group in Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24 and Vodafone , Clonshaugh, Dublin 17.

“Sponsors are at the heart of what makes the Host in Ireland initiative so successful. Sustained by the ‘5 Ps’ – policy, people, pedigree, pipes and power – Host in Ireland sought to converge the best that Ireland has to offer within each respective category into one expansive partner ecosystem,” explains Garry Connolly, President of Host in Ireland. “Embodying the fourth ‘P’ – Pipes, INEX provides companies with a higher level of connectivity, allowing them to more efficiently and cost-effectively expand their footprint globally via IP peering capabilities.”

Founded in 2013, Host in Ireland seeks to educate and make accessible digital asset hosting capabilities in Ireland to companies across the globe. At its core, Host In Ireland’s ‘5 Ps’ combine to deliver key benefits including: affordable power and renewable energy; ample connectivity to Europe and America; redundant network and bandwidth capacity; mature, local data center market made up of leading Ireland, U.S., UK and European brands; tax benefits; talented workforce; and an attractive, pro-business structure implemented by Ireland, validating why leading U.S. companies have called Ireland the home of their digital assets for over five decades. An industry-led initiative, Host in Ireland is sponsored by organizations that combined represent the ecosystem that supports and drives the ‘5 Ps’, enabling the successful hosting of U.S. digital assets in Ireland.

“Central to INEX’s offering is the desire, ability and infrastructure to deliver a world-class offering to service provider, content and other businesses who have IP traffic to peer,” says Barry Rhodes, Chief Executive Officer of INEX. “This world-class offering and desire to deliver the very best is reflected right across the industries, infrastructure and financial environment that support companies wishing to host digital assets in Ireland. The Host in Ireland initiative is a significant mouthpiece in ensuring this offering is communicated right across the world and we at INEX are delighted to support this work.”

If Ireland is not part of your digital asset infrastructure architecture, take a closer look at the unique opportunities the country can provide by visiting www.hostinireland.com.

About INEX

INEX is a neutral, industry-owned Association, founded in 1996, that provides IP peering facilities for its members. INEX membership is open to all organizations that can benefit from peering their IP traffic and there are currently 70 members. There is a full list of members available at www.inex.ie/about/memberlist/. To learn more about INEX, visit www.inex.ie.

About Host in Ireland

Host in Ireland is an industry-led marketing initiative that provides timely and accurate information on the Ireland’s Digital Asset Hosting Ecosystem at all times including demonstrating why Ireland is more cost effective, efficient, reliable, secure and accessible than most other regions across the EU. There’s a reason companies like Microsoft, Zendesk, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Adobe and beyond have sought to host their solutions in as well as to/from Ireland. Many of these reasons are immediately realized due to access to affordable power, redundant network and bandwidth capacity along with a variety of data center providers that offer an array of services sustained by the 5 Ps: Policy, People, Pedigree, Pipes, and Power. On top of that is a very attractive business management structure, implemented by Ireland, which is keenly interested to bring new businesses into the market. Ireland supports this initiative through attractive fiscal structures, access to a skilled workforce and full support of the U.S. Safe Harbor and Patriot Acts – ensuring data asset compliance for companies large and small.

NetIX et LyonIX sont désormais interconnectés à 1 Gbs

 

NetIX, structure d'origine Bulgare, développe un réseau sur l'Est de l'Europe et permet à ses clients et membres de rejoindre de nombreux IXP en Europe. Avec des points de présence à Sofia, Bucarest, Varsovie, Prague, Istanbul, Belgrade, Francfort, Paris, Amsterdam et Londres, NetIX transporte aujourd'hui plus de 50 réseaux d'opérateurs sur l'ensemble de ces villes.

En s'interconnectant avec LyonIX, NetIX a également accès aux IXP de la région Rhône-Alpes : GrenoblIX, ADN-IX, SaintetIX. Ainsi, des deux côtés, c'est un ensemble de plus de 150 réseaux qui pourront s'échanger gratuitement du trafic, et ce dans le cadre d'accord de peering via les Route Servers. La connectivité entre l'Europe de l'Est et les IXP de LyonIX va donc être fortement améliorée.

Quanza Engineering is nieuwe reseller AMS-IX

Quanza Engineering is toegevoegd aan het reseller-programma van AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange). Quanza heeft een uitgebreide expertise in het leveren, ontwerpen, implementeren en bouwen van IT-infrastructuren. Quanza is een unieke partner van AMS-IX, aangezien het bedrijf naast het verbinden van haar klanten met de exchange, waarde toevoegt door op te treden als kennispartner van AMS-IX.

AMS-IX heeft een breed partnernetwerk met partners die onderdeel zijn van het AMS-IX partnerprogramma. Dit programma maakt het mogelijk voor externe partijen om AMS-IX poorten beschikbaar te stellen op elke locatie waar zij een infrastructuur hebben aangesloten op co-locaties van AMS-IX in Amsterdam. De partners die vallen onder dit programma zijn gecertificeerd om de diensten van AMS-IX op afstand aan te bieden. Het programma is opgericht om nieuwe klanten via de partners een eenvoudiger toegang tot de diensten van AMS-IX te verlenen. Dit wordt mogelijk gemaakt door de toegevoegde waarde van de exchange en de voordelen die peering blijvend met zich meebrengen.

“Wij zijn erg blij om Quanza Engineering te verwelkomen als nieuwe partner”, zegt Job Witteman, CEO van AMS-IX. “De kennis en diensten van Quanza zijn erg waardevol voor ons partnerecosysteem. Waar de meeste partners AMS-IX ondersteunen met het bieden van LAN extension- of transportdiensten, is Quanza juist een partij die kennis toevoegt.”

“De samenwerking tussen AMS-IX en Quanza begon ruim 10 jaar geleden. Wij ondersteunen de exchange al sinds 2001 bij de bouw van hun infrastructuur of regelen de aanvragen van onze klanten voor een aansluiting op AMS-IX”, zegt Frans ter Borg, eigenaar van Quanza. “Onze klanten willen graag dat wij onze diensten als ‘one-stop-shop’ bieden voor al hun infrastructuur gerelateerde vragen. Dit was de perfecte aanleiding om officieel partner te worden van AMS-IX.”


Quanza Engineering New Reseller AMS-IX

Quanza Engineering is the latest partner to join the reselling program of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange). Quanza has extensive expertise in offering its customers the delivery, design, implementation and management of their IT infrastructure. Quanza will become a unique partner for AMS-IX, since the company will not only help connecting their clients to the exchange, but will also act as knowledge partner for AMS-IX.

AMS-IX’ broad partner network allows third parties to resell AMS-IX ports anywhere they have infrastructure connected to the AMS-IX colocations in Amsterdam. Under the program these parties and their services are certified to offer the AMS-IX service remotely. The program is aimed to provide easier access to AMS-IX for new (remote) customers through the partners and to consequently increase the value of the exchange through increased peering benefits.

“We are very pleased to have Quanza Engineering as our new partner,” says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “The knowledge and services of Quanza are a very valuable addition to our partner ecosystem. Where most existing partners support AMS-IX with LAN extension or transport services, Quanza is a true knowledge partner for AMS-IX.”

“AMS-IX and Quanza already started working together more than 10 years ago. We support AMS-IX since 2001 with the setup of their infrastructure or with the connection of our clients to the exchange,” says Frans ter Borg, owner of Quanza. “A part of the arrangement took place between AMS-IX and the customer. However, various customers requested us to offer services as a ‘one stop shop’ for all their infrastructure related requests. In this request, we saw a great opportunity to become an official AMS-IX partner.”

22.05.2014 Fenix is the new name of the Secure VLAN project

Prague, 22nd May 2014 – Fenix, based on the mythical indestructible Phoenix bird, is the new name of the NIX project known to the Czech and general audience under the name Secure VLAN. Alongside with the new name, the representatives of the Czech peering node revealed the new logo and brand of the project at the Internet and Technologies ’14 conference today. Each company partaking in the project which goal is a greater protection against the DoS and DDoS attacks.   “We have been talking of the next steps regarding the branding of the project from the very beginning. Creation of an official name, a logo and an icon that can be used by the partaking companies was just a natural development” said Martin Semrád, the executive director of NIX.CZ. “The logo originates in the triangular structure of the NIX.CZ logo and it depicts the flying Phoenix. The brand name consists of two sets of letters (2-3), the second set carries the name of the organization which initialized the project.”   The goal of the Secure VLAN/Fenix project is a greater protection against DoS and DDoS type attacks on popular Internet services in the Czech Republic. The project originates at NIX.CZ, the Czech peering node, and is kind of a reaction to last year’s (March) intensive DoS attacks. Companies signing up for this project, by doing so, clearly indicate their resolution to make the network security in the Czech Republic higher and ensure a bigger safety for their customers.   Abouth the legendary bird and the name of the security project   The characteristic of the mythical bird is its ability to renew itself; it starts with a self-destruction in fire (metaphorically speaking, in reality this would mean the project’s member’s disconnection from the Internet) in order to rise from ashes (allowing the project member to reconnect to the Internet ones the attacks are over). Among other alleged characteristics of Phoenix is that it cannot be found as the place where it lives is mysterious and undiscovered (the same way are the members of the trusted network hidden from a potential attacker in case they decide to go into hiding).

AMS-IX New York is Now Operational at DFT's NJ1 Data Center

AMS-IX New York is now operational at DuPont Fabros Technology’s NJ1 data center located in Piscataway, New Jersey. Moreover, DuPont Fabros has received the Open-IX OIX-2 certification for this data center. 

AMS-IX New York is a neutral and distributed Internet Exchange Point (“IXP”) that was officially launched in New York City by the Mayor of Amsterdam on April 11, 2014. AMS-IX New York was awarded OIX-1 certification by the Open-IX Association earlier this year and its presence will enable DFT’s NJ1 customers in Piscataway, New Jersey to access the peering platform.

The Open-IX Association was setup in September 2013 as a neutral, non-profit industry association formed to promote better standards for data center interconnection and Internet exchanges in North America.

AMS-IX New York’s core and edge switches are located at DFT’s NJ1 data center, which is diversely connected via dark fiber to other AMS-IX New York points of presence. AMS-IX New York’s Internet Exchange node at NJ1 has the capability of providing ports to customers with speeds ranging from 1 to 100 Gigabits per second (“Gbps”). Lower port capacities are available through resellers.

“Having the AMS-IX New York Internet Exchange at NJ1 is a huge step towards our data center becoming a key connectivity hub in the New York metro area,” said Vinay Nagpal, Director of Carrier Relations for DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. “AMS-IX New York’s platform will provide our customers with a resilient and low-latency local peering option to exchange traffic amongst other peers in the distributed exchange platform in Piscataway.”

“AMS-IX New York is very pleased to be partnering with DFT. Bringing together the robust infrastructure and operational excellence of a best-in-class data center building with a world leading connectivity platform provided by AMS-IX Internet Exchange is a great benefit for both of our customers,” added Job Witteman, Chief Executive Officer of AMS-IX. “At NJ1, we are expecting to service our existing members and attract new members including carriers, content providers and eye-ball networks to join our local peering platform.”

DE-CIX Selects Zayo to Deploy Internet Exchange Infrastructure in New York

zColo, the colocation division of global Bandwidth Infrastructure provider Zayo Group, LLC...


Racing & networking

For the 12th consecutive year AMS-IX sponsored the Quanza ISP Kart event. At this event the Dutch Internet community could gather in an informal setting, practice go-kart racing and enjoy the various entertainment offered by the sponsors.

This year’s event theme was Arcade meets Wild West. In line with this theme attendees could play against each other on various arcade machines, such as car and cycle machines. Moreover, they could go back in time to the Wild West, which means they could ride an (electric) bull, practice their shooting skills in the target shooting game, and in the meantime eat a hotdog with fries. For the ones who preferred less noise and crowd, quiet areas were set up for a drink and catch-up.

As in previous years 40 different companies competed against each other in a go-karting race. Due to the large amount of participating companies, the race was split in two timeslots and allowed only 20 teams to race per timeslot. The top 3 companies with the most laps won an ISP kart event trophy.

AMS-IX formed a team together with a few employees of Flexwebhosting. The team proved to be a very enthusiastic and motivated team. However, these qualities were of little avail as we ended very low in rank.

Still, if there had been a prize for best-personalized gear we know for sure we would have won. This year the AMS-IX team had personalised helmet covers and vests. If you were at the event you could not have missed it. Otherwise see below picture to get an idea.

Even though the go-karting was not a success, we did enjoy the overall atmosphere with the Internet community and the adrenaline rush of the racing. This is certainly an event worth attending next year!

AMS-IX New York Officially Launched

To celebrate the launch of AMS-IX New York, we brought classic Amsterdam heritage to the Hudson River with the three-masted clipper Stad Amsterdam. On Friday, April 11 our customers and partners joined AMS-IX’s CEO Job Witteman and Amsterdam’s Mayor Van der Laan to welcome the first neutral and distributed Internet Exchange to open its doors in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area.

What makes us stand out is that AMS-IX New York is Open-IX certified. Open-IX has been formed by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors that encourage the development of the ‘European style’ neutral and distributed Internet Exchange model. The biggest advantage of this model is that connected parties are able to easily and effectively exchange IP traffic with all other connected parties directly, without a commercial transit provider being involved. While this Internet Exchange Model has been common in Europe for over two years, this is first time the American interconnection market is seeing anything like this.

This neutral, non-profit model not only makes it possible to exchange IP traffic with other parties within one specific data center – as is the case in existing US Internet Exchange models – but also with other parties in the exchange network that are located in other data centers. By investing in a standardized approach to establishing Internet Exchanges, the exchange of traffic between Internet related parties will become less complex and the associated costs will be reduced. We’ve already welcomed our first customers and have received a number of interested applications.

Amsterdam shares a lot of similarities with New York – a reputation for liberal values, free thought, entrepreneurship and innovation. Both cities have great quality of life, a diverse population and a love for bicycles. What makes this step extra special for us is that the country that ‘invented’ the Internet is using Dutch expertise to further optimize the US interconnection market.

AMS-IX New York Launches Point-of-Presence at Sabey Data Centers’ Intergate.Manhattan

Seattle-based Sabey Data Center Properties, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owners and developers, and AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), the world’s leading Internet exchange operator, announced today the launch of an AMS-IX New York point-of-presence -- the only distributed and neutral Open-IX certified Internet exchange in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area -- within Intergate.Manhattan, Sabey’s 1 million-square-foot facility at 375 Pearl Street in Lower Manhattan.

At a launch ceremony led by Eberhard van der Laan, Mayor of the City of Amsterdam, Netherlands, participants welcomed the telecommunications industry’s increasing support for the Open-IX model which is driving the movement to spread the European neutral and distributed model for exchanging traffic between major networks.

The exchange has already signed Netflix, the world’s leading Internet television network, and IX Reach, a global leading provider of wholesale carrier solutions, as the first two customers for AMS-IX New York. At present, 16 additional customers have applied for a connection to the exchange. The exchange is owned and governed by its members and is operated by AMS-IX USA Inc., a newly formed subsidiary of AMS-IX.

Mayor van der Laan said, “Historically, the Dutch people are global trading leaders. We were the first European settlers to come to this island, and we named it New Amsterdam. Today, I envision the same business potential here that my ancestors recognized – New York City as a global center of the new Internet economy.”

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors, and other market parties that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model in the US. The ultimate objective of Open-IX is to reduce interconnection complexity and associated costs in this country, which have been more complex and higher than in Europe, where the preferred Internet exchange model is more common.

John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “The Open-IX model creates neutral, member-governed exchanges that allow participants to trade traffic. Open-IX spreads exchange operations across multiple data centers in a market. This allows users and carriers the ability to connect and peer traffic not only in New York City but across the United States and Europe and to potentially avoid legacy building risks and expense.”

Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX, said, “I strongly believe that a distributed exchange model offers the best value by enabling a choice of connectivity options in as many data center locations as makes business sense. In Amsterdam, the AMS-IX exchange platform is currently distributed over 12 different data centers serving well over 650 IP networks from around the globe, making it the largest Internet exchange in the world.”

Mr. Sabey added, “We are very happy to partner with AMS-IX New York on this important market-changing initiative. Offering more choice in the New York City market to carriers and customers is good for everyone.”

Intergate.Manhattan represents an exponential expansion to New York City’s computing infrastructure capacity. The 32-story Intergate.Manhattan is also the most efficient data center in New York City, with brand new infrastructure and state-of-the-art climate control and electrical systems. The building’s Con Ed substation is on the second and third floors, eliminating a risk from storm surge damage that affected so many buildings in Lower Manhattan during Superstorm Sandy.

Mr. Witteman added, "The opportunity to start neutral, distributed Internet exchanges in the US with the endorsement of the Open-IX community fits our strategy of building Internet exchanges in connectivity hub locations around the world. We believe the model will bring the North American IP interconnection market tremendous value by decreasing complexity as well as the associated costs.”

Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX, said, “I strongly believe that a distributed exchange model offers the best value by enabling a choice of connectivity options in as many data center locations as makes business sense. In Amsterdam, the AMS-IX exchange platform is currently distributed over 12 different data centers serving well over 650 IP networks from around the globe, making it the largest Internet exchange in the world.”

Mr. Sabey added, “We are very happy to partner with AMS-IX New York on this important market-changing initiative. Offering more choice in the New York City market to carriers and customers is good for everyone.”

Intergate.Manhattan represents an exponential expansion to New York City’s computing infrastructure capacity. The 32-story Intergate.Manhattan is also the most efficient data center in New York City, with brand new infrastructure and state-of-the-art climate control and electrical systems. The building’s Con Ed substation is on the second and third floors, eliminating a risk from storm surge damage that affected so many buildings in Lower Manhattan during Superstorm Sandy.

Mr. Witteman added, "The opportunity to start neutral, distributed Internet exchanges in the US with the endorsement of the Open-IX community fits our strategy of building Internet exchanges in connectivity hub locations around the world. We believe the model will bring the North American IP interconnection market tremendous value by decreasing complexity as well as the associated costs.”


Pays Voironnais Network se transporte jusqu'à LyonIX

La Délégation de Service Public (DSP) Pays Voironnais Network (PVN) s'est interconnecté sur le noeud d'échange Internet de Lyon, sur le POP LyonIX 2. LA DSP du Pays voironnais propose des offres sur fibre optique et DSL sur le territoire de Voiron (Isère). Elle ne vend pas en direct aux entreprises car c'est un opérateur d'opérateur. Toutes les offres sont donc portées par des opérateurs Telecom ou Internet.

Jusqu'à aujourd'hui, peu d'opérateurs avaient fait le pas, de commercialiser des services sur PVN car il leur fallait rejoindre physiquement le réseau de PVN depuis Grenoble ou Lyon ce qui engendrait des coûts importants, surtout pour les premiers clients.

Désormais Pays Voironnais Network permet à tous les opérateurs qui veulent fournir des services sur le territoire de Voiron de le faire directement depuis LyonIX, au même coût que si ils étaient physiquement sur Voiron, cette offre locale restant toujours valide.


PVN neutralise ainsi l'isolement relatif de Voiron en terme de Telecom et permet d'accélérer le développement des offres et des débits, avec une baisse des prix attendue pour les utilisateurs finaux (entreprises, collectivités publiques).

Les avantages de l'interconnexion

Pour Alain Sommerlatt, responsable de PVN, "C'est un nouveau départ pour la zone économique de Voiron car LyonIX regroupe la majorité des acteurs Telecom de la région Rhône-Alpes, et il leur sera maintenant plus simple et plus rapide de rejoindre notre réseau de fibre voironnais, sans aucun surcoût."

Samuel Triolet, directeur de Rezopole rajoute : "On peut donc s'attendre à une redynamisation de cette DSP qui dispose déjà d'un beau réseau, passant au plus près des entreprises du territoire. Grâce à la concentration des offreurs Telecom et Internet sur les IXP LyoIX et GrenoblIX, des projets de DSP comme PVN peuvent proposer plus d'offres, plus rapidement, avec de meilleurs débits, et les utilisateurs finaux ne pourront qu'en profiter."

14.04.2014 NIX.CZ is going to become a partner to the Internet and Technology 14 conference

The Czech peering node, NIX.CZ is going to become a partner to the upcoming Internet and Technology event on May 22 and 23 in Prague. The programme of this traditional get-together for the members of the Internet community in the Czech Republic will accommodate also the presentation on the Secure VLAN project. The Internet and Technology 14 conference will be held in the representative rooms of the Staropramen brewery in Smíchov (Pivovary Staropramen, Nádražní 84). The programme as well as the registration forms will be published by the conference organiser, CZ.NIC on www.nic.cz/it14 by the end of April. The opening of the registration for the event will be announced via our NEWS section.  


OpenWide améliore sa connexion sur LyonIX

Openwide est le premier membre qui passe en attachement double port sur LyonIX. Depuis 10 ans, OpenWide (anciennement Accelance) est connecté sur LyonIX. En tant qu'hébergeur et infogérant de plateformes web (-ecommerce, sites publics), la connexion sur LyonIX est devenue critique pour OpenWide car plus de 30 % du trafic est fait en peering sur le noeud d'échange lyonnais.

Aussi, il est bon d'être certain que le peering s'écoule toujours sur le GIX. Mais OpenWide utilise également la connexion sur LyonIX pour acheter et vendre des services. Mélanger le peering et
l'achat/vente n'est pas toujours évident techniquement.

Aussi, depuis Avril 2014, la connexion vers LyonIX a été doublée.

L'évolution de LyonIX

LyonIX est en effet un IXP (Internet eXchange Point pour le peering) mais également un NAP (Network Access Point, pour les échanges commerciaux). Étant donnée l'augmentation actuellement des volumes de trafic et la criticité croissante des échanges entre les membres, il devient important pour LyonIX de garantir un fonctionnement sans perturbation pour les deux types de trafics. La solution la plus simple est de les isoler chacun l'un de l'autre.

Lancement du Guichet d'Information Télécom Grenoble

Grenoble Alpes Metropole, en partenariat avec Rezopole, lance le lundi 24 Février le Guichet d'Information Télécom de la métropole grenobloise. Une réunion de présentation de l'outil à 11h00 et un cocktail déjeunatoire à partir de 12h00 ont été prévus à cette occasion.

Le Guichet d'Information Télécom

Le Guichet d'Information Télécom est un service dédié aux entreprises, opérateurs et prestataires de service Télécom, mais aussi aux collectivités locales.

Results: AMS-IX Member/Customer Survey 2013

Every year we ask our members and customers to carry out our customer survey and give us their honest opinion about our services, platform and other activities. This information gives us an idea of what we need to improve and where we can continue in a similar manner.

This year 73 parties completed the survey. Of those, most originate from the Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom. Other countries that are being represented include France, Italy, Russia, Argentina, United Arab Emirates and Korea. Almost half of the respondents (40%) are thinking about upgrading in 2014, of which most to a multiple of 10GEs or 100GE.

Parties may have different reasons for connecting to an Internet exchange. Quality of service, the number of connected parties and neutrality & independence have made the top 3, directly followed by number of routes and cost-effectiveness. But how does AMS-IX score on these attributes? AMS-IX has given a full 4 out of 5 points for the number of connected parties, connecting to a stable and future-proof platform and obtaining technical support. Cost-effective means of exchanging traffic and obtaining peering support have scored above 3.5 out of 5 points. The ability to have a say in the Association has been rated almost 3.5 out of 5 points.

To have an AMS-IX membership is for half of the respondents (51%) valuable, however they do not vote. For 37% this membership is very valuable and also actively participates in voting. To the question if respondents would be interested in a SLA stated 24% a yes. This is about the same level as last year. A reason for this low interest could be the high confidence connected parties have in the AMS-IX platform.

All departments at AMS-IX have scored well. Both sales and marketing have achieved above 3 out of 5 points. Member relations and financial support have been rated a 3.5 out of 5 points. But the department that have performed the best, according to the respondents, is the NOC with a full 4 out of 5 points.

Overall AMS-IX has scored well. Let’s try to give the same level of quality or even better to our customers and members this year.

Discussing Commercial Opportunities in the Caribbean Content Market

Earlier this month, Nico Scheper, Business Development Manager at AMS-IX Caribbean, travelled to the Dominican Republic to attend Capacity Caribbean, an event for the wholesale Caribbean community, of which AMS-IX Caribbean was a sponsor. Besides meeting new parties and existing customers, Nico participated in a panel discussion regarding commercial opportunities in the Caribbean market, together with Oleg Baccovich of Canal+ Caraibes, Spencer Thomas of National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Grenada, Shermon Osepa of Internet Society and Vicky Coelho of Logic Bemuda.

“Since the presence of AMS-IX Caribbean in the Caribbean area the commercial opportunities have grown considerably”, Nico explained during the panel discussion. “Following Google’s and Akamai’s connection to the exchange platform, content of these providers is available on a much shorter distance, having resulted in a better user experience and at the same time in demand of Internet connections and higher broadband packages”.

Even though other attendees confirmed the commercial opportunities in the region also concerns about net neutrality and disruptive business models exist. “I have noticed that people are looking for ways to commercially deal with ‘over the top’ services. Agreements about possible solutions are still underway.”

Nico missed a good definition of Caribbean content during the panel discussion. “Discussions about content tended to focus too much on the production and distribution of local Caribbean content while most content used in this region is popular international content. So a good subject for a panel discussion at next year’s Capacity Caribbean event would be what people define as Caribbean content.”


AMS-IX New York Receives Open-IX Certification

AMS-IX New York has received the IXP Open-IX certification for the New York/New Jersey metropolitan statistical area. With this qualification from the Open-IX Association (OIX), AMS-IX New York becomes one of the first OIX certified neutral and distributed Internet exchanges in North America.

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors, and other market parties that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet Exchange model in the US.

All interested datacenter parties and Internet exchanges can adopt Open-IX standards and apply for certification. Becoming certified signifies that parties are not only adopting the standards but Open-IX has jointly certified the operations and provides its members with the right to utilize its certification marks so that the public can easily identify an OIX Internet exchange or datacenter and enjoy the additional benefits.

The technical requirements for Open-IX certification have been set by the IXP Standards Committee of the Open-IX Association, lead by AMS-IX’s CTO Henk Steenman. These include requirements regarding neutrality, openness, service offering, infrastructure and operations. AMS-IX New York has met all criteria and has received the IXP OIX-1 Certification for the New York / New Jersey metropolitan area. AMS-IX New York is currently deployed in Digital Realty’s 111th 8th datacenter and will soon operate from DuPont Fabros Technology (Piscataway New Jersey), Sabey’s Intergate Manhattan datacenter (375 Pearl Street) and the new 325 Hudson Street interconnection facility.

To receive the IXP OIX-1 Certification AMS-IX New York also needed to have a customer advisory board to help provide feedback and guidance on customer related matters. Part of this board is Aaron Hughes, Founder & CEO of 6connect. "This role gives me the opportunity to support the Open-IX initiative and help AMS-IX New York to further growing its business."

“We are very pleased to be certified by the Open-IX Association,” says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “This certification underlines our expertise and track record in building and deploying neutral Internet exchanges. By meeting the OIX Standards we expect to quickly increase our US customer base, and therefore increase the value of the exchange. That Aaron is willing to support us by being part of AMS-IX New York’s customer advisory board is greatly appreciated. This certification also acts as a first step for expansion of AMS-IX USA to other US metropolitan areas.”

L'activité des DataCenters continuent de s'étendre sur Lyon, et la région Rhône-Alpes avec non seulement des extensions dans les centres existants, mais aussi avec de nouveaux projets de centres d'hébergement informatiques qui devraient voir le jour dans les mois à venir sur tout le territoire régional. On assiste d'ailleurs au même phénomène sur les autres villes où Rezopole a créer des IXP dans la région Rhône-Alpes : Grenoble, St Etienne, Valence. Tous les Datacenters viennent également se connecter sur nos noeuds d'échange locaux" déclare Samuel Triolet, directeur de Rezopole.

Aicent Lifts IPX Peering To New Heights With New Dual 10GE Connection at AMS-IX

Aicent, the world’s leading multi-service IPX of mobile data network services and solutions for mobile carriers globally, has announced that its IPX peering connection at AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) has now grown to dual 10GE peering connections, a world first in the IPX peering history. This is a major milestone in the growth of LTE roaming data and demonstrates Aicent's global leadership in driving data roaming in the world of LTE.

Highlights

With the continued growth of mobile subscribers worldwide and rapid adoption of next generation mobile services such as LTE and VoLTE, the need for greater capacity to handle the increase in data transported between mobile networks is becoming progressively more critical. As a leading roaming hub, Aicent’s quality of service and continued capacity growth on a global level relies heavily on the establishment of high capacity and secure data connections.

As a trusted GRX peering location for not only Aicent, but all GRX providers for over the last ten years, AMS-IX has proven itself as a supplier of stable, fast and cost-effective Internet services making it a secure choice for Aicent when deciding to further expand its IPX capacity.

As the first IPX provider to move to a dual 10GE capacity, Aicent now leads the world in roaming exchange traffic with the largest amount of data capacity.

Supporting quotes

Job Witteman, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), AMS-IX
“We are pleased that Aicent, one of the foremost mobile interconnects, has decided to upgrade their Inter-IPX connectivity towards AMS-IX. This first redundant 10GE IPX peering connection will definitely help them to handle expected traffic growth with roaming over LTE. The connection also demonstrates Aicent’s trust in the robustness and cost-effectiveness of the neutral AMS-IX platform as the main IPX peering point. Together with IPX providers, such as Aicent, we can continue to work on making IPX the modus operandi for the roll out and interconnection of next generation mobile services and networks.”

Vivian Ding, Vice President, Operations Aicent, Inc.
“With AMS-IX’s support for dedicated GRX/IPX peering along with an extensive peering network, Aicent is able to support a wide range of peering customers through a broad, secure, and fast connection. By doubling our capacity with AMS-IX we have broadened our capabilities to provision next generation services including content delivery and VoLTE for the carrier, enterprise and consumer markets.”

03.02.2014 The NIX.CZ Association has launched a new project that will make Czech Internet safer

  Prague, February 3rd - ACTIVE 24, CESNET, CZ.NIC, Dial Telecom, Seznam.cz and Telefónica Czech Republic are the six companies that joined the new project called Secure VLAN. It is designed to help to cope with the DoS and DDoS attacks which are targeting the popular Internet services in the Czech Republic. The Secure VLAN project has home to existence on the NIX.CZ platform as a reaction to massive DoS attacks of March 2013. By joining the project, these companies clearly indicate their intention to make Czech Internet safer for their customers. Currently, there are other companies preparing to join the project too.   “Naturally, for a significant number of companies connected to NIX.CZ it is their key Czech customers that matter the most. During attacks it becomes impossible for affected customers to connect to important Internet services. In an event of such an attack a company joined in the project has a possibility to maintain a connection through the Secure VLAN and provide access to services thanks to other companies joined in the Secure VLAN project and this is the basic idea of the project.” explains Martin Semrád, the director of the NIX.CZ Association.   A participation in the project is subject to a number of conditions set in the Terms which must be fulfilled by each company wishing to join the project. For example, the company must be connected to NIX.CZ for a certain time period prior to joining the project, it must be trustworthy and it has to actively participate at the Working groups.   “To become a member of the Secure VLAN  a company must have a first-rate level of technology. Potential participants must fulfil strict security conditions and they have to make adjustments of their networks, such as implement safety measures against IP spoofing, which is the most common method to hide the true origin of DoS attacks.” adds Adam Golecký, the technical director of the Czech peering node.   The Secure VLAN is governed by its members, who are fully independent from NIX.CZ and have a full autonomy in their decisions. The project started to emerge last year and the representatives of the NIX.CZ Association have been discussing it on a number of Working groups and meetings.   “I am firmly convinced that a membership in such a project will become vital for companies that provide connection for important services, these need to maintain an uninterrupted connection even in the most critical moments. For many this step will mean a financial investment which will however return in a bigger marketing potential due to the membership in such a project.” says Martin Semrád.

SFR optimise son réseau en 10Gb/s sur l'infrastructure LyonIX

SFR a upgradé ses équipements en 10Gb/s sur infrastructure Internet LyonIX, afin de gérer le trafic en forte croissance qui passe par Lyon.
SFR, connecté depuis 2006 sur l'infrastructure de Rezopole en 1Gb/s, est passé à l'étape suivante, et a configuré son réseau en 10Gb/s. Cela lui permettra de bénéficier d'un débit 10 fois plus important, ce qui aura un impact positif sur la connexion Internet des utilisateurs et clients.

« Pour SFR, il est important d'être proche de ses clients et de leur délivrer le meilleur service en proximité afin qu'ils puissent développer leur business en toute sérénité. Il était important pour nous d'upgrader par avance vers 10 Gbs car nous constatons depuis quelques mois une forte croissance du trafic local. » affirme Gilles-François Notari, Responsable Peering chez SFR.

NL-ix Backbone hits 500Gbit/s

This week the NL-ix Internet Exchange platform exceeded the 500 Gb traffic level for the first time in history!

With this milestone NL-ix is now scored as the global number 7 IXP looking at traffic levels, while being ranked as number 5 counting the number of connected members (source: http://www.pch.net/ixpdir).

This impressive traffic increase is mainly caused by a significant growth in video-traffic, and the recent introduction of 100 Gb ports at NL-ix.


List of AMS-IX Gold & Silver Partners Announced

AMS-IX can announce that eight of its reselling partners are qualified Gold or Silver Partner. Parties who are allowed to use the name AMS-IX Gold Partner are Atrato IP Networks, Equinix, EvoSwitch, Hutchison Global Communications (HGC) and IX Reach. AMS-IX Silver Partners are FiberRing, Liazo and Rascom

AMS-IX’s reselling partners have been bringing in a lot of new customers the past few years. To therefore further increase partner involvement and to reward successful partners, AMS-IX has introduced a revised partner program last October with new partner levels: Gold Partner, Silver Partner and Partner. 

To qualify as Gold Partner, partners had to sell more than 14 applications or 60GE (Gigabit Ethernet) of port capacity in 2013. To become Silver Partner, partners had to sell over 5 applications or 30GE of port capacity. 

For 2014, AMS-IX has set up new conditions for becoming a Gold or Silver Partner. To qualify for the first status, resellers have to sell more than 20 applications or 100GE of port capacity. For our colocation partners the selling capacity needs to be 300GE. To be named Silver partner, resellers have to sell more than 10 applications or 50GE of port capacity, which is 150GE for our colocation partners. 

If other AMS-IX reselling partners reach the Gold or Silver level this year they also will be upgraded. The status is valid until the end of 2014. In January 2015 AMS-IX will review again who can be named Gold or Silver Partner.

AMS-IX New York Selects Zayo as Fiber Provider

International Bandwidth Infrastructure provider Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”), has been selected by AMS-IX USA Inc. to supply fiber connectivity between the multiple data centers in the United States where AMS-IX New York operates its Internet peering platform. The U.S. exchange platform builds on AMS-IX’s successful Internet Exchange model in Europe, allowing multiple Internet service providers, content owners, cloud companies, and other Internet-related companies to efficiently and cost-effectively interconnect via an open peering fabric.

Zayo will provide dark fiber and Layer 2 connectivity for Internet Exchange customers using the Digital Realty data center in New York (111 8th St., Manhattan), DuPont Fabros Technology’s NJ1 data center in New Jersey (101 Possumtown Rd., Piscataway), Sabey Data Centers (375 Pearl St., Manhattan), and the 325 Hudson interconnection facility. Zayo’s fiber network will allow AMS-IX New York to have a direct flow of traffic between its major peering points of presence, with the fewer network hops supporting faster transportation of data.

“Providing connectivity for AMS-IX New York’s initial deployment brings the ease of the European peering model to our customers in the U.S.,” says Max Clauson, vice president of IP Services at Zayo Group.

“Zayo’s extensive network reach, especially into major data centers, made the provider our first choice to deliver interconnectivity between AMS-IX New York’s points of presence,” says Henk Steenman, Chief Technical Officer at AMS-IX. “The scalability of the dark fiber product enables Zayo to meet our needs as the exchange develops.”

This new exchange is part of AMS-IX’s global deployment of peering platforms. AMS-IX plans to deploy distributed Internet Exchanges in the Chicago and Silicon Valley markets in the first and second quarters of 2014.

NL-ix welcomes its 400th member

NL-ix celebrates the fact that the 400th member signed for NL-ixmembership: Feral Hosting , based at Bristol, United Kingdom.

This new milestone clearly shows that the amount of companies, ISPs, operators and hosters connecting to NL-ix is growing exponentially. Earlier we welcomed member 200 (Breezz) at the end of 2008 (6 years after start NL-ix), and member 300 (Benesol) came in winter 2012 (3,5 years later).

Now, january 2014, Feral Hosting connects to NL-ix as member 400 (only 2 years later). If this trend would go on, NL-ix may envision milestone member 500 even sooner. For more statistics on NL-ix members and ports, please have a look at: http://www.nl-ix.net/network/statistics/


Looking into AMS-IX’s New Connections of 2013

AMS-IX grew strongly in 2013, adding in total 110 new parties to the exchange platform. This number is higher than in previous years (89 in 2012, 106 in 2011 and 59 in 2010). Among the new connected parties are Booking.com, Adobe Systems, Wargaming Interactive, COMBELL and Iceland Telecom.

To give you a better idea of these new additions, the following paragraphs will go into this more deeply, addressing subjects as the origin and type (member/customer) of the parties.

Close to 20% of the new connected parties at AMS-IX originate from the Netherlands, making it the country where most of the new parties are based. The same percentage is also being reflected in our total number of connected networks. Besides the Netherlands most parties that started peering at AMS-IX in 2013 originate from the United Kingdom, France and the United States.

Overview Countries 2013

Overview World Parts 2013
Continent of origin of new connected parties in 2013


Parties who apply for a connection directly have the option to become a member of the AMS-IX Association or a customer. The only difference between the two options is that members may attend and vote in the AMS-IX Association General Meeting, and their representatives may be nominated for the AMS-IX Executive Board. Last year, 32% of the connected parties connected directly to AMS-IX, of whom 14% chose to become a member and 18% a customer. The other 68% were added to the exchange through a partner or reseller.

IX Reach Becomes First Reseller of AMS-IX New York

IX Reach, global leading provider of wholesale carrier services and connectivity solutions, is the first reselling partner of AMS-IX New York. AMS-IX New York has recently been established according to AMS-IX’s successful and proven European business model. It is the first Internet Exchange of AMS-IX USA Inc. that was founded following the Open-IX initiative. The partnership enables IX Reach to remotely connect parties to peer at the exchange and enhance their IP service offering.

IX Reach has been a reseller of AMS-IX in Amsterdam since 2007. Until now, they have managed to bring a large number of customers to Amsterdam. In 2013, IX Reach was the reseller connecting the most parties, 21 in total, to AMS-IX in Amsterdam “We are very pleased that IX Reach has also joined our Partner Program in the USA”, says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “With IX Reach joining AMS-IX New York, we have managed to engage with a valuable player. They have a very extended network in the USA, which makes it easier for parties outside of New York to connect to AMS-IX New York.”

AMS-IX has introduced the AMS-IX Partner Program to allow third parties to resell AMS-IX ports anywhere they have infrastructure connecting to the AMS-IX locations in New York. Under the program these parties and their services are certified to offer the AMS-IX service remotely. The program is aimed to provide easier access to AMS-IX for new (remote) customers through the AMS-IX partners and to consequently increase the value of the exchange through increased peering benefits.

Key benefits of the AMS-IX Partner Program are that partners are able to deliver full service to their customers – including IP transport, AMS-IX peering ports and customer support -, no investments in equipment have to be made and lower port capacity is available when needed.

Steve Wilcox, Founder and Technical Director of IX Reach, commented: "AMS-IX has always been a very important partner for IX Reach, so we're very pleased to be a part of their expansion to the US. Peering and the Internet are always evolving and established IXPs like AMS-IX are key to the growth of the Internet. Being able to now offer connectivity to AMS-IX New York is an exciting addition to our peering services."

Rezopole héberge une Ancre Ripe

En Octobre 2013 le RIPE a mis en service le projet Atlas Trust Anchor visant à produire un outil de mesure de la qualité de l'Internet par le déploiement de près de 50 Ancres autour du monde pour la fin 2014.

Depuis début janvier, Rezopole héberge une Ancre RIPE Atlas. Ces Ancres, en interaction avec les sondes RIPE, permettent d'effectuer des tests personnalisables (ping, traceroute, DNS, SSL) et fiables de la qualité de l'Internet, avec une capacité de mesure supérieure aux sondes. L'hébergement des Ancres permet de quadriller les réseaux et donc d'obtenir des informations en local comme en régional facilitant notamment l'identification de certaines pannes très localisées.


ripe ancre photo

Ce projet apportera donc des informations sur la connectivité, les performances et l'accessibilité des réseaux pour les hébergeurs d'Ancres mais profitera également au reste de la communauté.

Rezopole met en place une sonde Border6

En plus de ses activités d'IXP, Rezopole a également mis en place de nombreux services destinés à la communauté internet. Quelques exemples : une base FTP, un service de visioconférence, un service de partage de fichiers... Pour assurer une bonne qualité de service, Rezopole a mis en place la solution Non Stop Internet de Border 6 afin d'optimiser ses routes BGP. La sonde Border 6 permet de favoriser certaines routes pour les rendre plus rapides et plus fiables.




La solution effectue des tests sur l'ensemble du réseau, générant ainsi une évaluation des performances et de la connectivité. Les données recueillies servent à optimiser le routage BGP en fonction du délais et de la perte de paquet vers les destinations test ou celles les plus utilisées.

07.01.2014 The Czech Neutral Internet exchange point, NIX.CZ, presents its new corporate identity

After more than five years it's time the Czech national Internet exchange point, NIX.CZ, had an overhaul!Our corporate rebranding involves all graphics, such as the corporate logo, website, printed and promotional materials and confirms the NIX.CZ Association, one of the top 10 European exchanges, in its commitment to transparent and effective communication with its members, customers and the general public.   "Our aim is to enhance communication and increase awareness of the NIX.CZ Association as an entity with a unique position not just in the realms of the Czech Internet. Naturally, the change of the visual design is an inseparable part of our corporate communication. The corporate logo, website and other graphics are all to be replaced after 5 years of sterling service. The new version of the logo takes the shape of the letter “X” which is characteristic for our field of activities" explains Martin Semrád, executive director of the NIX.CZ Association.   The new graphic design of the NIX.CZ Association has been drafted by Lemon Design studio whose previous clients include Prague 11 district authority, The Hussite Museum in Tábor and The British International School in Prague.

Open-IX Dialogue in New York

Earlier this month, AMS-IX’s CCO Mark Cooper was in New York City to not only raise the profile of AMS-IX New York but also to clarify to different market groups what the Open-IX initiative is. During his participation in the Data Center Panel, organised by JNK Securities for the data centre investment market, Mark found out that Open-IX was still unclear to people with a financial background. Two examples of questions raised during the panel discussion were is Open-IX an Internet Exchange and does it have an impact on cross connects in data centres. Together with Hunter Newby from 325 Hudson, George Cornachini from Digital Realty Trust, Inc. and Vincent Rais from EvoSwitch, Mark explained that the Open-IX initiative has been formed to improve the interconnection model in the United States, making it less complex and more secure and resilient.

Open-IX was also a hot topic during BWGStrategy's Data Center roundtable, attended by a mixture of technology and invest community executives from companies including NYSE, UBS, Digital Realty Trust, Inc. and TW Telecom. During the roundtable Mark discussed the peering model and the reasons for AMS-IX to go to the United States. The main focus of the discussion raised during the roundtable were the possible impact on organisations looking to optimise their connectivity and their future requirements from data centre operators.

The Open-IX website is now live. Check it out if you would like to know more about this initiative.

Minister Kamp brengt bezoek aan AMS-IX

Amsterdamse Internetinfrastructuur van groot economisch belang voor Nederland

Minister van Economische Zaken Henk Kamp heeft op maandag 16 december een bezoek gebracht aan AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange). AMS-IX ontving Minister Kamp in datacenter TelecityGroup AMS5 in Amsterdam om hem inzicht te geven in het functioneren van ’s werelds grootste Internetknooppunt en te spreken over het belang van het Internet ecosysteem voor de Nederlandse economie.

Met 630 aangesloten netwerken is AMS-IX de grootste Internet Exchange ter wereld. Op het neutrale en onafhankelijke platform wordt op piekmomenten meer dan 2,5 Terabit per seconde aan Internetverkeer uitgewisseld. Tijdens zijn bezoek aan TelecityGroup AMS5 maakte Minister Kamp kennis met het not-for-profit verenigingsmodel van AMS-IX en de waarden en ontwikkelingen die aan het succes van AMS-IX ten grondslag liggen. Bovendien verkreeg hij inzicht in de technische werking van de Internet Exchange als kerncomponent van de succesvolle en waardevolle Nederlandse Internetinfrastructuur.

Uit recent onderzoek van AMS-IX, Deloitte, de Dutch Hosting Provider Association (DHPA), ECP en Rabobank blijkt dat de digitale infrastructuur – na Schiphol en de Rotterdamse haven – de derde mainport van Nederland vormt. Dankzij een innovatieve houding en de juiste condities behoort de Nederlandse digitale infrastructuursector tot de top van de wereld en concurreert deze met Londen, Parijs en Frankfurt. De Nederlandse markt voor internetdiensten is open en neutraal. Hierdoor is Nederland een aantrekkelijke (vestigings)locatie voor bedrijven in de digitale infrastructuursector. De aantrekkingskracht van AMS-IX en het omringende ecosysteem van datacenters, netwerken en hosting providers blijkt onder meer uit het gegeven dat de regio Amsterdam in de eerste helft van 2013 veruit de sterkste groei in datacentercapaciteit kende in de Europese markt.

Naast het economische belang van AMS-IX op nationaal niveau is met Minister Kamp gesproken over de rol van AMS-IX in het internationale Internetverkeer: het succesvolle, neutrale en not-for-profit Internet Exchange model wordt zelfs naar andere werelddelen geëxporteerd en creëert als zodanig schaalvoordelen en toegevoegde waarde voor zowel bestaande als nieuwe leden. Na het Caribisch gebied, Hong Kong en Oost-Afrika heeft AMS-IX met AMS-IX New York onlangs zijn eerste neutrale exchange geopend in de Verenigde Staten.

“Een goede internetinfrastructuur is belangrijk voor de Nederlandse economie. AMS-IX levert daaraan een belangrijke bijdrage", zegt Henk Kamp, Minister van Economische Zaken.

"Wij zijn verheugd om te zien dat de Nederlandse overheid veel belang hecht aan investering in innovatie en connectiviteit en dit onderstreept met het bezoek van Minister Kamp aan AMS-IX", zegt Job Witteman, CEO van AMS-IX. “Met heldere regelgeving en ruimte voor innovatie kan Nederland wereldwijd een voortrekkersrol blijven vervullen op het gebied van digitale infrastructuur en e-business. Het is daarbij van belang dat beleidsmakers de randvoorwaarden creëren zodat marktpartijen blijven investeren in deze sector.”

Inter-IPX service now available at AMS-IX Hong Kong

Hutchison Global Communications Limited (HGC) and the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) have launched the Inter-IP Packet Exchange (Inter-IPX) service at AMS-IX Hong Kong, an Internet peering platform, to allow IPX providers to securely peer high-quality Internet Protocol (IP) traffic at a local level, and offer their customers added value at a more cost-effective price.

AMS-IX Hong Kong offers the Inter-IPX peering platform tailored to local market conditions. The service offers a place where regional and neighbouring IPX networks can efficiently link to one another and cover more territory via AMS-IX Hong Kong. The service complies with the high quality standards required by Global System for Mobile Communications Association and includes an Inter-IPX Service Level Agreement.

Andrew Kwok, HGC President of International and Carrier Business, said: “Launch of Inter-IPX service by AMS-IX Hong Kong is crucial to coping with growing demand for mobile data exchange following development of the 4G LTE network. Inter-IPX facilitates quicker rollout of interconnections among IPX platforms to deliver roaming and interworking traffic."

Job Witteman, Chief Economic Officer at AMS-IX said: “As mobile traffic is growing fast around the globe and the number of 4G deployments grows, an Inter-IPX service at AMS-IX Hong Kong and AMS-IX Caribbean is valuable to its customers. It responds to the business needs of local mobile operators for exchanging more content and volume with critical business partners.”

AMS-IX Hong Kong is a collaboration between HGC and AMS-IX. It was the first Internet Exchange platform in Asia between an Asia-based carrier and a Europe-based exchange. HGC is an exclusive worldwide sales and marketing arm for AMS-IX Hong Kong service.

Rezopole ouvre une 4ème baie sur LyonIX 1

Afin de répondre aux demandes d'interconnexions, Rezopole met en place une baie supplémentaire sur LyonIX 1. Les équipements sont identiques aux autres baies déjà occupées sur le Point de Présence (PoP) de Villeurbanne qui continue sa croissance.

LyonIX 1D démontre ainsi l'importance de maintenir un
point de présence dans un DataCenter neutre, celui de l'IN2P3 (le laboratoire de physique nucléaire du CRNS). Ce DataCenter permet en effet à tout acteur Télécom de venir s'interconnecter sans être situé dans un bâtiment privé.

LyonIX 1 reçoit déjà les équipements de plus de 28 structures différentes (opérateurs, grandes entreprises ou comptes publics). Les trois premières baies (LyonIX 1 A B C) étant pleines, une extension était nécessaire, ce qui est fait depuis début Décembre 2013.

Netflix Signs On To New York Open Internet Exchange

Netflix is first AMS-IX New York customer, one of eight that have applied for a connection

AMS-IX today announced that Netflix, the world’s leading Internet television network, is the first customer for AMS-IX New York. This location is the first Internet Exchange for Netflix to connect to that has been established as a reaction to the Open-IX initiative in the United States. This agreement follows Netflix’s connection to AMS-IX in Amsterdam earlier this year.

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors, and other market parties, including Netflix, that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet Exchange model in the US. The ultimate objective of Open-IX is to reduce interconnection complexity and associated costs in this country, which have been more complex and higher than in Europe, where the preferred Internet Exchange model is more common.

AMS-IX’s counterpart AMS-IX USA Inc. reached agreements with Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE: DFT), Sabey Data Centers and 325 Hudson in the first week of November to operate and build an Open-IX Internet Exchange in the New York/New Jersey area. Depending on the market demand and the willingness of other data center providers to partner with AMS-IX USA Inc., additional locations may be added. AMS-IX will also deploy distributed Internet Exchanges in the Chicago and Silicon Valley markets, which are currently planned to go live in respectively the first and second quarter of 2014.

“We are very pleased to have Netflix as the first customer of AMS-IX New York. One of the main reasons to broaden our scope to the US is to offer our US-based customers the value of a neutral and distributed Internet Exchange. Netflix is the first customer to take advantage of this,” says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX.

“Netflix has been one of the key drivers of the Open-IX initiative. With our connection to AMS-IX New York we can finally get benefit from the European Internet Exchange model in the US,” said David Temkin, Director of Network Architecture and Strategy and Chair Board of Directors of the Open-IX Association. “Moreover, our experience with AMS-IX in Amsterdam made it an easy choice to connect to AMS-IX New York as well.”

With our connection to AMS-IX New York we can finally get benefit from the European Internet Exchange model in the US,” said David Temkin, Director of Network Architecture and Strategy and Chair Board of Directors of the Open-IX Association. “Moreover, our experience with AMS-IX in Amsterdam made it an easy choice to connect to AMS-IX New York as well.”

Gaming Asks for Connectivity

The online gaming industry is booming. How do we know? By the impressive data traffic growth figures we see at our platforms. As the world's largest Internet Exchange, we welcome more and more gaming (related) companies every year. These companies exchange large volumes of data. Connectivity is obviously key for the future of gaming!

Gaming on smartphones, tablets and social channels has exploded and game development companies respond to the increased importance of Internet connection by taking control of the complete gaming supply chain. They not only develop, produce and publish their games, but they also start to play a role in the maintenance of the Internet infrastructure on which these games depend. Online games need to be fast and available every second of the day. Game developers, managed hosting providers and online gaming platforms are all investing in Internet interconnectivity so that they can take a share in the ever-growing online gaming market.

Gaming companies want to make sure that they can offer a more predictable quality of service. Managing the infrastructure inhouse not only helps in optimizing availability, but also leads to a shorter decision-making process and faster implementation of games. What we see is that gaming companies are starting to embrace Internet Exchanges to make IP peering easier and to broaden their market. Companies like Wargaming, i3D.net, Gameforge.com, Trion Worlds and Nforce are already connected to AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) and more parties will follow in the upcoming months.

Why are all these parties connecting to an Internet Exchange? Connecting to a global Internet hub first of all is the most cost-efficient way to reach other Internet companies. Gamers connect to different ISPs or telecom companies to play online. For online game providers, an Internet Exchange is the easiest way to connect with all these companies. At AMS-IX Amsterdam, over 600 networks share IP traffic, with a peak of more than 2.5 Terabit per second, reaching the most international mix of connected networks. Another advantage is that AMS-IX is introducing new services and technological improvements continuously, making sure that sufficient bandwidth and speed is available at all time and all platforms (including mobile) are supported. Located at the ports of Europe (Amsterdam), Asia (Hong Kong) and the US (New York), AMS-IX is an important landing platform for Internet related companies who are serving your gamers.

AMS-IX will be present at GameConnection in Paris on December 3. If you want to discuss what we can do for your game, drop us a note!

AMS-IX appoints Mark Cooper as Chief Commercial Officer

Mark Cooper replaces Cara Mascini, who is now Chief Strategy Officer

Mark Cooper (44) has been appointed Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) at AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange). He took over the position from Cara Mascini (43), who fulfilled this role as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) for the past 10 years. Cara Mascini has started a new challenge as Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) at AMS-IX.

As CSO, Cara Mascini is responsible for the long-term strategy development, creating the strategic context, stakeholder management, strategic relations, organisational development and company culture. With the recent international expansions, the need for more strategic context was growing to make sure the organization develops according to the objectives that are set for a longer term and the strategy is executed accordingly.

Before joining AMS-IX, Mark Cooper was Director Strategy & Marketing at Interxion within the Network Service Provider and Content Delivery Network division. Prior to Interxion, Mark Cooper was employed by KPN International in the role of Product Manager and before that by KPNQwest in the role of Product Marketing Manager. As the new CCO of AMS-IX, Mark Cooper is responsible for the management and further development of marketing, sales, business development and customer relations within AMS-IX.

“I feel AMS-IX is the absolute leader in the field of Internet Exchanges”, said Mark Cooper. “This role offers me the opportunity to join an organization with a focus on expansion into new international markets. This function allows me to further develop my experience of team management and leadership, particularly in the area of marketing.”

“After 10 years of building the commercial operation, it was time for a new role and challenge. With Mark Cooper, AMS-IX has found an excellent successor, because he has an excellent track record in the areas of marketing and business development”, said Cara Mascini. “Typically in a fast growing and technical high performance oriented environment, there is less attention for long term and organisational development. So I decided that will be my challenge from hereon.”

So I decided that will be my challenge from hereon.”


AMS-IX appoints Mark Cooper as Chief Commercial Officer

Mark Cooper replaces Cara Mascini, who is now Chief Strategy Officer

Mark Cooper (44) has been appointed Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) at AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange). He took over the position from Cara Mascini (43), who fulfilled this role as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) for the past 10 years. Cara Mascini has started a new challenge as Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) at AMS-IX.

As CSO, Cara Mascini is responsible for the long-term strategy development, creating the strategic context, stakeholder management, strategic relations, organisational development and company culture. With the recent international expansions, the need for more strategic context was growing to make sure the organization develops according to the objectives that are set for a longer term and the strategy is executed accordingly.

Before joining AMS-IX, Mark Cooper was Director Strategy & Marketing at Interxion within the Network Service Provider and Content Delivery Network division. Prior to Interxion, Mark Cooper was employed by KPN International in the role of Product Manager and before that by KPNQwest in the role of Product Marketing Manager. As the new CCO of AMS-IX, Mark Cooper is responsible for the management and further development of marketing, sales, business development and customer relations within AMS-IX.

“I feel AMS-IX is the absolute leader in the field of Internet Exchanges”, said Mark Cooper. “This role offers me the opportunity to join an organization with a focus on expansion into new international markets. This function allows me to further develop my experience of team management and leadership, particularly in the area of marketing.”

Breed sectoronderzoek wijst uit: digitale infrastructuur is derde mainport van Nederland

Digitale infrastructuur ruggengraat van verdere economische groei

Na Schiphol en de Rotterdamse haven is de digitale infrastructuur de derde mainport van Nederland en daarmee essentieel voor de verdere uitbreiding en toekomstige groei van de Nederlandse economie. Dat blijkt uit een gezamenlijk onderzoek van AMS-IX, Deloitte, de Dutch Hosting Provider Association (DHPA), ECP en Rabobank. Onder digitale infrastructuur wordt verstaan: housing, hosting en connectiviteit. De partijen presenteren het onderzoek vandaag tijdens het Jaarcongres van ECP in Den Haag.

Digitale diensten worden een steeds groter onderdeel van onze economie. De verwachting is dat het wereldwijde IP-verkeer tussen 2013 en 2017 verdubbelt, met een jaarlijkse groei van 23 procent. Voor wat betreft de workload van datacenters in West-Europa gaat het onderzoek uit van een groei van zestig procent tussen 2013 en 2016, met een jaarlijkse toename van twintig procent. De digitale infrastructuur is hiervoor de voedingsbodem: (nieuwe) technologiebedrijven zijn in korte tijd snel uitgebreid en bedienen klanten over de gehele wereld. Naast de grote organisaties zijn naar schatting in Nederland ook zo’n duizend mkb’ers actief in de digitale-infrastructuursector.

Dankzij een innovatieve houding en de juiste condities behoort de Nederlandse digitale-infrastructuursector tot de top van de wereld en concurreert met Londen, Parijs en Frankfurt. Nederland loopt voorop op het gebied van internetinnovatie en participeert actief in internetcommunity’s. De markt voor internetdiensten is bovendien open en neutraal. Hierdoor is Nederland een aantrekkelijke (vestigings)locatie voor bedrijven in de digitale-infrastructuursector.

Dat Nederland een leidende positie in de wereld heeft, blijkt ook uit de omvang van de Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX). Dit is de grootste Internet Exchange in de wereld als het gaat om verbonden IP-netwerken, en de op een na grootste in termen van dataverkeer (gigabits per seconde). AMS-IX is dé mainport voor het internet – meer dan Rotterdam is voor containers en Schiphol voor passagiers. Gekeken naar breedbandpenetratie en gemiddelde verbindingssnelheid, staat Nederland op de tweede plek de EMEA-regio (Europa, het Midden-Oosten en Afrika), en op de zesde plaats wereldwijd.

Daarnaast lijkt industrialisatie van het datacenter nog maar in de kinderschoenen te staan. Het merendeel van de IT-apparatuur is nog altijd gehuisvest in in-house serverruimten en datacenters, maar het vooruitzicht is een consolidatie van grote geïndustrialiseerde datacenters die vaak energie-efficiënter zijn. Deze consolidatie draagt bij aan het verkleinen van onze ecologische voetafdruk.

Volgens het onderzoek is de leidende positie in deze wereldwijde sector ook snel weer te verliezen. De grenzen tussen landen in de digitale economie zijn vaag – bedrijven kunnen eenvoudig hun apparaat en organisatie verplaatsen naar een andere plek in de wereld. Daarnaast trekken veel landen actief nieuwe internetbedrijven en -activiteiten aan. Bovendien is de digitale economie sterk afhankelijk van fysieke factoren als ruimte en elektriciteit – twee aspecten waarvoor langetermijnplanning nodig is om beschikbaarheid te garanderen.

Aanbevelingen voor het behoud van de leidende positieDe onderzoekers formuleerden zes aanbevelingen om de leiderspositie van Nederland te versterken. 
  • Focussen op innovatie en de ondernemersgeest stimuleren. Zo hebben we immers ook onze huidige positie bereikt. 
  • Gebruik maken van geschikte industriemodellen die passen bij de belangrijkste producten en diensten in deze snel veranderende markt. Op dit moment is de digitale-infrastructuursector bijvoorbeeld onzichtbaar in de economische statistieken vanwege SBI-codes die niet passen bij de producten en diensten in deze nieuwe sector. 
  • Opleidingen verbeteren, zodat we straks personeel hebben dat gekwalificeerd is voor de eisen van de digitale economie. 
  • Een evenwichtige regelgeving opstellen op basis van een gedetailleerd inzicht in de sector in internationaal perspectief. Die kan een gezonde basis zijn voor de digitale economie, maar de overheid moet ervoor zorgen dat dit bedrijfsactiviteiten of klantervaring niet meer dan nodig in de weg staat. 
  • Beschikbaarheid van ruimte en elektriciteit op de lange termijn zeker stellen. Verschillende stakeholders (zoals de sector, overheid, energieproductie en -distributie) moeten hiervoor samenwerken. 
  • Investeringsmethoden, met specifieke kennis van de digitale sector, stimuleren. In het huidige economische klimaat hebben vooral kleinere bedrijven namelijk moeite om voldoende investeerders aan te trekken.

“Dit onderzoek toont ondubbelzinnig het enorme belang van de Nederlandse digitale infrastructuur”, zegt Michiel Steltman, directeur van de DHPA. “Deze derde mainport is de motor voor groei en biedt bovendien Nederlandse mkb’ers grote kansen in de internationale online wereld. De bal ligt nu bij de overheid en het bedrijfsleven. Zij moeten deze infrastructuur nog meer gaan gebruiken als basis voor economische groei. Daar is uitgebalanceerd beleid voor nodig – niet alleen als reactie op excessen, maar dat ook rekening houdt met het economisch belang.”

Prague, 12 November 2013 – The Czech Internet eXchange Point NIX.CZ has launched a Partnership Program which aims to make it possible for smaller or local companies to connect to NIX.CZ. This offer can be used by businesses whose traffic is less than 1GE and who find it interesting to connect to a peering node. Currently, the contractual partners of the program include Atrato IP Networks, ČD Telematika, Kaia Global Networks Ltd., Slovak SITEL and Telefónica O2.   "In order to become a member or a customer of NIX.CZ and thus benefit from all the opportunities that this membership brings, every company must meet a number of requirements. This partnership program has been introduced for smaller entities that fulfill these requirements but did not find this connection financially attractive. This program will enable them to connect to our node through our contractual partners. Also, this method makes our cooperation much easier," explains Martin Semrád, Director of NIX.CZ.   More information is available on the website of NIX.CZ ( www.nix.cz/cz/carriers ), which also contains contact details of contractual partners that are ready to provide further details. The program was launched at the beginning of the year and is expected to continue in the years to come.

AMS-IX USA Inc. gaat van start met Open-IX Internet Exchange in New York

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), ’s werelds grootste Internetknooppunt, heeft met zijn dochteronderneming AMS-IX USA Inc. een definitief akkoord bereikt met Digital Realty (NYSE:DLR), DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE:DFT), Sabey Data Centers en 325 Hudson. In samenwerking met deze partijen wordt in de regio New York/New Jersey een gedistribueerd Internetknooppunt opgezet en beheerd onder de naam AMS-IX New York.

AMS-IX zal ook gedistribueerde en op zichzelf staande Internet Exchanges in Chicago en Silicon Valley uitrollen. Deze knooppunten zullen opeenvolgend geïmplementeerd worden in het eerste en het tweede kwartaal van 2014. Dit nieuwe business initiatief volgt op het certificeringsproces van de Open-IX Association voor het opzetten van neutrale en gedistribueerde Internetknooppunten in de Verenigde Staten.

In alle drie de markten zal AMS-IX Internetknooppunten uitrollen die verschillende gebieden dekken, beginnende met AMS-IX New York. De Internet Exchanges zullen niet onderling gekoppeld worden en ook niet in verbinding staan met AMS-IX in Amsterdam. De uitrol in New York vindt plaats in de datacenters van Digital Realty en DuPont Fabros Technology in New York (111 8th) en New Jersey (101 Possumtown Road, Piscataway). Afhankelijk van de vraag uit de markt en de bereidheid van andere datacenterleveranciers om samen te werken met AMS-IX, zullen andere locaties worden toegevoegd. De andere twee locaties die zijn geselecteerd voor de AMS-IX New York Internet Exchange zijn Sabey Data Centers’ Intergate.Manhattan en de nieuwe 325 Hudson Street interconnectie colocatie. Meer datacenter locaties volgen in een later stadium. AMS-IX is er van overtuigd dat een gedistribueerd exchange-model de meeste waarde toevoegt voor klanten door een grote keuze aan connectiviteitsopties in zo veel mogelijk datacenters. Het AMS-IX exchange-platform in Amsterdam is momenteel verdeeld over 12 verschillende datacenters en bedient ruim 600 IP-netwerken wereldwijd. Dit maakt AMS-IX Amsterdam tot het grootste Internetknooppunt ter wereld.

Open-IX is een initiatief dat is gestart door een groep van Internet netwerk operators, contenteigenaren, distributeurs en andere Internetgerelateerde partijen, zoals datacenters. Open-IX stimuleert de ontwikkeling van het neutrale en gedistribueerde exchange-model in Noord-Amerika. Deze groep vormde ook de Open-IX Association en installeerde een interim bestuursraad naar aanleiding van de aftrap van het initiatief in augustus van dit jaar.

Internetknooppunten en datacenterbedrijven zoals AMS-IX, Digital Realty en DuPont Fabros Technology, zullen worden beoordeeld volgens de technologiestandaarden die zijn vastgesteld door de Open-IX community. Het Open-IX framework verzekert toekomstige continuïteit van het neutrale governance-model en de technische compliance van alle deelnemende Internetknooppunten. Het ultieme doel van Open-IX is om complexiteit op het gebied van interconnectie en de gerelateerde kosten te verminderen in Noord-Amerika, waar dit veel complexer en duurder is dan in Europa. In Europa is het neutrale en gedistribueerde exchange-model veel meer gemeengoed. Het initiatief van AMS-IX, Digital Realty en DuPont Fabros Technology past binnen de visie van het Open-IX framework. Alle partijen rekenen dan ook op de ondersteuning door Open-IX wanneer zij het proces in gang zetten.

Job Witteman, CEO van AMS-IX, zegt: “De kans om met de versterking van de Open-IX community neutraal gedistribueerde Internetknooppunten in de VS te starten, past bij onze strategie om Internetknooppunten te bouwen op wereldwijde hublocaties. Dit model zal zowel de complexiteit als de gerelateerde kosten verminderen, waardoor wij overtuigd zijn van de toegevoegde waarde van het model voor de Noord-Amerikaanse markt voor IP interconnectie. AMS-IX streeft ernaar om deze markt te transformeren. We zijn dan ook erg verheugd dat we gaan partneren met twee grote partijen op deze markt: Digital Realty en DuPont Fabros Technology.”

We zijn verheugd dat we gaan samenwerken met AMS-IX voor dit belangrijke initiatief”, zegt Michael F. Foust, Chief Executive Officer van Digital Realty. “Door mee te werken aan het opzetten van een werkelijk open omgeving voor een Internetknooppunt, ondersteunen we de vraag van de Open-IX community naar neutrale knooppunten die efficiënter en kosteneffectiever zijn dan wat op dit moment op de markt beschikbaar is. Hierdoor zullen onze klanten toegang krijgen tot een verbeterde interconnectiviteit en Internetpeering-mogelijkheden.

Hossein Fateh, President en Chief Executive Officer van DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. voegt toe: “Hiermee borduren wij voort op ons carrier-neutrale basisprincipe. We zijn dan ook erg verheugd om de Open-IX Association, maar ook de ontwikkeling van de AMS-IX New York Internet Exchange te ondersteunen in ons Piscataway NJ1 datacenter. De AMS-IX Internet Exchange zal via NJ1 de netwerkproviders en de New York Stock Exchange ondersteunen. Zij bieden momenteel connectiviteitsdiensten aan onze klanten. We verwachten dat onze klanten hierdoor kunnen profiteren van deze open peering en interconnectiviteit omgeving.”

John Sabey, President van Sabey Data Centers, stelt: "We zijn erg blij om samen met AMS-IX dit belangrijke marktveranderende initiatief te starten. Het aanbieden van meer keuze aan de carriers en de klanten in New York City is goed voor iedereen."

AMS-IX New York neemt met ingang van vandaag opdrachten aan. De 111 8ste Digital Realty faciliteit is de eerste omgeving waarbinnen klantpoorten nu al beschikbaar zijn. De andere twee Internet Exchanges (AMS-IX Chicago en AMS-IX Silicon Valley) zullen respectievelijk volgen in het eerste en tweede kwartaal van 2014. Henk Steenman, CTO van AMS-IX, zegt : "Door onze ervaring met het bouwen en beheren van Internet Exchanges in Europa, Azië, het Caribisch gebied en Oost-Afrika hebben we een blauwdruk voor het uitrollen van nieuwe Internet Exchanges. Alle configuratie-, beheer- en monitoringsystemen zijn vooraf gedefinieerd en klaar voor gebruik. De belangrijkste prioriteit is om de organisatie en het team uit te breiden en om de apparatuur en de lokale Dark Fiber tussen de verschillende datacenters te implementeren. Vervolgens kunnen we aan de slag met andere commercieel interessante partijen die met AMS-IX willen samenwerken en Open-IX gecertificeerd zijn."


AMS-IX USA Inc. to Deploy an Open-IX Internet Exchange in New York

Presence in Digital Realty, DuPont Fabros Technology, Sabey and 325 Hudson Data Centers with AMS-IX New York accepting orders as of today

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), the world’s leading Internet Exchange operator, announces that its newly-formed subsidiary AMS-IX USA Inc. has reached definitive agreements with Digital Realty (NYSE: DLR), DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE: DFT), Sabey Data Centers and 325 Hudson in the New York/New Jersey area to build and operate a distributed Internet Exchange, named AMS-IX New York.

AMS-IX will also deploy distributed Internet Exchanges in the Chicago and Silicon Valley markets, which are currently planned to go live in respectively the first and second quarter of 2014. This new business initiative is a response to the certification process by the Open-IX Association for the setup of neutral and distributed Internet Exchanges in the United States.

In all three markets, AMS-IX will deploy an Internet Exchange spanning several locations with an initial deployment of AMS-IX New York in Digital Realty and DuPont Fabros Technology data centers in New York (111 8th) and New Jersey (101 Possumtown Road, Piscataway) respectively. Depending on the market demand and the willingness of other data center providers to partner with AMS-IX, additional locations may be added. For the AMS-IX New York Internet Exchange the other two locations that have been selected are Sabey Data Centers’ new Intergate.Manhattan at 375 Pearl Street and the newly opened 325 Hudson interconnection facility. More locations will follow at a later stage. AMS-IX strongly believes that a distributed exchange model offers the best value by enabling a choice of connectivity options in as many data center locations as makes business sense. In Amsterdam, the AMS-IX exchange platform is currently distributed over 12 different data centers serving well over 600 IP networks from around the globe, making it the largest Internet Exchange in the world.

Open-IX is an initiative started by a group of Internet network operators, content owners and distributors and other market parties, such as data centers, that encourages the development of the neutral and distributed Internet Exchange model in North America. This group formed the Open-IX Association and instated an interim board following the launch of the initiative in August of this year.

Internet Exchange operators and data center companies such as AMS-IX, Digital Realty and DuPont Fabros Technology, will be reviewed against the technology standards set by the Open-IX community. The Open-IX framework ensures future continuity of the neutral governance model and the technical compliance of any participating Internet Exchange. The ultimate objective of Open-IX is to reduce interconnection complexity and the associated costs in North America, which have been more complex and higher than in Europe, where the neutral and distributed Internet Exchange model is very common. As the business initiative of AMS-IX, Digital Realty and DuPont Fabros Technology fits the Open-IX framework, all parties expect to be certified by the association when the process commences.

AMS-IX’s Chief Executive Officer Job Witteman says: "The opportunity to start neutral, distributed Internet Exchanges in the US with the endorsement of the Open-IX community fits our strategy of building Internet Exchanges in connectivity hub locations around the world. We believe the model will bring the North American IP interconnection market tremendous value by decreasing complexity as well as the associated costs. AMS-IX is committed to bringing about this market transformation, and is pleased to have found initial partners in two major market participants Digital Realty and DuPont Fabros Technology. "

"We are pleased to be collaborating with AMS-IX on this important initiative," said Michael F. Foust, Chief Executive Officer at Digital Realty. "By helping establish a truly open Internet Exchange environment, we are supporting the Open-IX community's desire for neutral exchanges that are more efficient and cost-effective than those available today. The end result for our customers will be access to enhanced interconnectivity and Internet peering capabilities."

Hossein Fateh, President and Chief Executive officer of DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. commented: “Building upon our carrier-neutrality principle, we are glad to support the Open-IX Association and encourage the deployment of the AMS-IX New York Internet Exchange in our Piscataway NJ1 data center. The AMS-IX Internet Exchange at NJ1 will complement the network providers and the New York Stock Exchange currently providing connectivity services to our customers. We expect our customers to benefit from this open Peering and Interconnectivity environment”.

John Sabey, President of Sabey Data Centers, stated: “We are very happy to partner with AMS-IX New York on this important market-changing initiative. Offering more choice in the New York City market to carriers and customers is good for everyone.”

AMS-IX New York is accepting orders as of today, with the first presence in the 111 8th Digital Realty facility ready to provision customer ports. The other two Internet Exchanges (AMS-IX Chicago and AMS-IX Silicon Valley) will follow respectively in the first and second quarter of 2014. Henk Steenman, Chief Technical Officer of AMS-IX, says: "With our experience of building and managing Internet Exchanges in Europe, Asia, the Caribbean and East Africa we have a blueprint for rolling out new exchange platforms. All of the configurations, management and monitoring systems are pre-defined and ready for deployment. The main priority is to extend the organization, the team and to deploy the equipment and local Dark Fiber between the several data centers, as well as with other companies that are willing to partner with AMS-IX, and are Open-IX certified and commercially feasible."

30.10.2013 NIX.CZ is organizing the second annual Peering Day conference

Prague, October 30th 2013 – The representatives of the Czech national peering node, NIX.CZ  are happy to announce that the second annual Peering Day conference will be held in Vienna in cooperation with VIX.at on March 3rd and 4th 2014.The first edition of the Peering Day conference was organized in May this year. Similarly to this year's conference, the main topics of next year's event will deal with subjects related to Telco companies, data centres and peering nodes throughout the CEE Region. The aim of the conference is to provide neutral grounds for the representatives of these organizations to meet and share their professional experience. One of the partners of the upcoming conference is RIPE NCC, the Regional Internet Registry for Europe and the Middle East. Speaking about the event, Martin Semrád, the managing director of the Czech national peering node, NIX.CZ said: "This year's Peering Day conference proved to be a very successful event. More than 150 attendees interested in the field of telecommunication, peering nodes and data centres were welcomed to Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague, the venue for this year's conference. Since the conference was organized in cooperation with our colleagues from VIX.at from Vienna - and we plan to maintain this partnership - we have decided to organize next year's conference in the Austrian capital". He continued, pointing out that: "Currently we are preparing the programme of the conference and we are approaching potential speakers for the event. We are gradually publishing information on the conference's well-known website, http://www.peeringday.eu, which is already up and running." The programme of the second annual Peering Day conference is of relevance to industry specialists, namely the representatives of peering nodes, Internet Service Providers, cloud solutions and data centre specialists active in the region of Central and Eastern Europe. Naturally, the conference will not only provide an opportunity to share one's professional experience but will also serve as an excellent hub for networking with fellow professionals in the field.


Flamingo TV Reduces Upstream Connectivity Costs with Connection to AMS-IX Caribbean

Flamingo TV, Bonaire’s largest provider of broadband connections for the delivery of cable television as well as optical fiber products, today signed a connection agreement with AMS-IX Caribbean at the 20th LACNIC event in Willemstad, Curaçao. With this connection, Flamingo TV will be able to reduce upstream connectivity costs and latency and improve quality of service. Next to cable and fiber channel products, Flamingo TV also delivers digital television and will soon offer telecom services.

The infrastructure of AMS-IX Caribbean allows members and customers to interconnect and exchange IP traffic, better known as peering, directly with all other AMS-IX Caribbean customers. This reduces the need to send traffic through a commercial transit provider. With many major global IP networks and other Internet players being customers of AMS-IX Caribbean, a connection allows for easy and relatively cheap connectivity to these parties through BGP peering.

“With a connection to AMS-IX Caribbean, we are certain the services to our clients will improve, says Patrick R. Dowling, General Manager of Flamingo TV BV. “With future developments like our digital television and telecom offerings, we need to stay loyal to our proposition of being a trusted broadcast company. By connecting to AMS-IX Caribbean, we will do just that and also reduce costs.”

“It is good to see that parties such as Flamingo TV build on AMS-IX Caribbean to improve their services and reduce connectivity costs at the same time”, says Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “This definitely facilitates future growth of their business. Next to this, AMS-IX Caribbean is proud to welcome Flamingo TV to join our exchange traffic.”

The Internet market in the Caribbean has experienced some excellent growth in the last few years. The exchange traffic at AMS-IX Caribbean grew to twelve members; peak traffic has reached 3.8 Gbps and between 2011 and 2013 the peak traffic grew by 150%.

Structuur nieuwe AMS-IX entiteit in de VS gekozen

Geselecteerde structuur dient AMS-IX B.V. en de AMS-IX vereniging tegen Amerikaanse wetgeving te beschermen

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) kondigde eerder deze maand aan plannen te hebben om een aparte juridische entiteit in de Verenigde Staten (VS) op te zetten. We kunnen nu bevestigen dat een structuur voor deze entiteit is gekozen door de AMS-IX B.V. in samenwerking met Jones Day (internationaal advocatenkantoor), de Raad van Bestuur van de AMS-IX vereniging en een aantal vertegenwoordigers van de leden van de AMS-IX vereniging.

Door de nieuwe entiteit is het mogelijk om Internet exchanges (IX) in de VS op te zetten. Deze IX’s zullen niet fysiek zijn aangesloten op het AMS-IX exchange platform in Amsterdam, maar zullen zelfstandig opereren, zoals gebruikelijk is bij de AMS-IX exchanges buiten Nederland. De Amerikaanse entiteit wordt een Delaware besloten vennootschap, vergelijkbaar met een Nederlandse besloten vennootschap. De entiteit wordt een volledige dochteronderneming van AMS-IX B.V., waarbij de twee bedrijven onafhankelijk van elkaar opereren. AMS-IX B.V. zal alleen fungeren als aandeelhouder. Geen van de medewerkers of executives die in Nederland werken, worden geplaatst in de Amerikaanse entiteit of andersom. Daarnaast zal de AMS-IX B.V. verschillende operationele overeenkomsten met de Amerikaanse entiteit afsluiten, waaronder het operationele kader waarbinnen de entiteit zal opereren, alsmede de vergunningen afgeven voor de benodigde intellectuele eigendommen.

Een dergelijke structuur dient ervoor te zorgen dat het Amerikaanse bedrijf geen bezit, zeggenschap of beheer heeft over de data of apparatuur van de AMS-IX B.V. Daarnaast geldt de Amerikaanse wetgeving, zoals de USA Patriot Act, niet voor buitenlandse entiteiten waarover de VS geen jurisdictie heeft. De USA Patriot Act is daarom niet van toepassing op de AMS-IX B.V. of de AMS-IX vereniging.

Rekening houdend met mogelijke toekomstige veranderingen in de Amerikaanse wetgeving (bijv. de extraterritoriale effecten van de USA Patriot Act) is er altijd de mogelijkheid om een onafhankelijke Nederlandse stichting te vormen. Dit betekent dat de Amerikaanse entiteit buiten de Nederlandse AMS-IX-structuur kan worden geplaatst en dat de zakelijke relatie tussen het Amerikaanse bedrijf en de AMS-IX B.V. zal worden verbroken. De reden voor AMS-IX om niet direct te kiezen voor deze structuur is dat deze structuur het niet mogelijk maakt om de beoogde schaalvoordelen van de organisatie te behalen. Mocht het echter nodig zijn, dan zal AMS-IX zich hierop beroepen en zal binnen één week een stichting gecreëerd worden om de Nederlandse infrastructuur en activa te beschermen.

Gedurende een interactieve infosessie vanmiddag hebben de AMS-IX B.V., de Raad van Bestuur van de AMS-IX vereniging en een aantal vertegenwoordigers van de leden de andere leden van de AMS-IX vereniging geïnformeerd over de voor- en nadelen van de mogelijke structuren van de Amerikaanse entiteit en de redenen voor de gekozen structuur. Tijdens de sessie werden de leden in de gelegenheid gesteld om vragen te stellen en feedback te geven.


Structure New AMS-IX US Entity Chosen

Selected structure to protect AMS-IX BV and AMS-IX Association from US legislation

Following our statement earlier this month on the plan to set up a separate entity in the United States (US), we can now announce that a structure for this entity has been chosen by the AMS-IX BV in cooperation with Jones Day (global law firm), the AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) Board and several representatives of the members of the AMS-IX Association.

The new entity is meant to enable deployment of Internet exchanges in the US, which will not be physically connected to the AMS-IX exchange platform in Amsterdam, but are stand alone IXs, as is customary with the AMS-IX exchanges outside of the Netherlands. The entity (from here 'US Inc') will be a Delaware incorporated company, very similar to a Dutch BV. The US Inc. will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of AMS-IX BV, whereby the two companies act independently from each other. AMS-IX BV will act solely as a shareholder. No employees or executives working in the Netherlands will be placed in the US Inc. or vice versa. Furthermore, the AMS-IX BV will have several operating agreements with the US Inc. that define the operational framework within which the entity can act, as well as license the applicable intellectual property.

Such a structure seeks to ensure that the US Inc. will not have possession, custody or control over AMS-IX BV’s data or equipment. Moreover, as US legislation, such as the USA Patriot Act, does not apply to foreign companies where there is no US jurisdiction, the USA Patriot Act should not apply to the AMS-IX BV or AMS-IX Association.

To guard, however, against potential future changes in US law (leading, for instance, to extraterritorial effect of the USA Patriot Act) an independent Dutch orphan foundation can be formed at any time. This means that the US Inc. can be moved outside the Dutch AMS-IX structure, and the corporate link between the US Inc. and AMS-IX BV would be severed. AMS-IX’s reason for not selecting this structure in the first place is that an independent orphan foundation does not allow for the intended economy of scale of the organisation, but if needed this Dutch orphan foundation will be invoked and created in one week to protect the Dutch infrastructure and assets.

In an interactive information session this afternoon, the AMS-IX Company, Board and the member representatives group informed the other members of the AMS-IX Association on the pros and cons of the possible structures of the US entity, and the reasons for having selected this particular one. During the session, the members were given the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.

Such a structure seeks to ensure that the US Inc. will not have possession, custody or control over AMS-IX BV’s data or equipment. Moreover, as US legislation, such as the USA Patriot Act, does not apply to foreign companies where there is no US jurisdiction, the USA Patriot Act should not apply to the AMS-IX BV or AMS-IX Association.

To guard, however, against potential future changes in US law (leading, for instance, to extraterritorial effect of the USA Patriot Act) an independent Dutch orphan foundation can be formed at any time. This means that the US Inc. can be moved outside the Dutch AMS-IX structure, and the corporate link between the US Inc. and AMS-IX BV would be severed. AMS-IX’s reason for not selecting this structure in the first place is that an independent orphan foundation does not allow for the intended economy of scale of the organisation, but if needed this Dutch orphan foundation will be invoked and created in one week to protect the Dutch infrastructure and assets.

In an interactive information session this afternoon, the AMS-IX Company, Board and the member representatives group informed the other members of the AMS-IX Association on the pros and cons of the possible structures of the US entity, and the reasons for having selected this particular one. During the session, the members were given the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.


Structure New AMS-IX US Entity Chosen

Selected structure to protect AMS-IX BV and AMS-IX Association from US legislation

Following our statement earlier this month on the plan to set up a separate entity in the United States (US), we can now announce that a structure for this entity has been chosen by the AMS-IX BV in cooperation with Jones Day (global law firm), the AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) Board and several representatives of the members of the AMS-IX Association.

The new entity is meant to enable deployment of Internet exchanges in the US, which will not be physically connected to the AMS-IX exchange platform in Amsterdam, but are stand alone IXs, as is customary with the AMS-IX exchanges outside of the Netherlands. The entity (from here 'US Inc') will be a Delaware incorporated company, very similar to a Dutch BV. The US Inc. will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of AMS-IX BV, whereby the two companies act independently from each other. AMS-IX BV will act solely as a shareholder. No employees or executives working in the Netherlands will be placed in the US Inc. or vice versa. Furthermore, the AMS-IX BV will have several operating agreements with the US Inc. that define the operational framework within which the entity can act, as well as license the applicable intellectual property.

Such a structure seeks to ensure that the US Inc. will not have possession, custody or control over AMS-IX BV’s data or equipment. Moreover, as US legislation, such as the USA Patriot Act, does not apply to foreign companies where there is no US jurisdiction, the USA Patriot Act should not apply to the AMS-IX BV or AMS-IX Association.

To guard, however, against potential future changes in US law (leading, for instance, to extraterritorial effect of the USA Patriot Act) an independent Dutch orphan foundation can be formed at any time. This means that the US Inc. can be moved outside the Dutch AMS-IX structure, and the corporate link between the US Inc. and AMS-IX BV would be severed. AMS-IX’s reason for not selecting this structure in the first place is that an independent orphan foundation does not allow for the intended economy of scale of the organisation, but if needed this Dutch orphan foundation will be invoked and created in one week to protect the Dutch infrastructure and assets.

In an interactive information session this afternoon, the AMS-IX Company, Board and the member representatives group informed the other members of the AMS-IX Association on the pros and cons of the possible structures of the US entity, and the reasons for having selected this particular one. During the session, the members were given the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback.


New Peak Traffic Number at AMS-IX: 2,5 Tb/s

AMS-IX exceeded the 2,5 Tb/s of peak Internet traffic on Tuesday evening the 22nd of October. Earlier that day it already crossed the 10 Tb/s of connected capacity.  

The strong growth in Internet video traffic is one of the factors that contributed to this increase in Internet traffic on the platform of the exchange. Other factors are the growth in connected networks at AMS-IX and a higher number of smartphone users in the Netherlands and abroad.


AMS-IX Exceeds 10 Tb/s of Connected Capacity

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) has exceeded the 10 Terabit per second (Tb/s) of connected capacity. AMS-IX is the world’s first Internet exchange offering this amount of connected capacity.

One of the reasons that AMS-IX has crossed the 10 Tb/s of connected capacity is the increase in number of connected IP networks. This year, 85 new networks have already been added to the exchange. This is more than the total number of new connected parties in 2012.

What also contributed to reaching this level of capacity is the take up of 100GE ports. So far, fifteen 100GE ports are enabled at AMS-IX. As a result of the 50% price drop for the 100GE ports in July of this year, we expect that more parties will follow soon.

ROUTE-SERVER CAMPAIGN WITH iPAD-5 AWARD

NL-ix ROUTE-SERVER ACTION MAY GET YOU AN IPAD-5 --

As an option to seriously increase your peering traffic at the NL-ix peering-LAN, members could consider to join the NL-ix Route-servers. By doing this, you dont have to approach all other members for bilateral peerings, since you benefit immediately from the fact that a large amount of current NL-ix members already announces their routes via these route-servers.

Therefor by joining the route servers you automatically will exchange peering traffic with the other route-server users.

NL-ix would like to stimulate the use of our route-servers and therefor kicked off a one-time campaign:

NL-ix starts a raffle in which members that are not using the route-servers yet, but start using the route-servers before 20 December 2013, may win one iPad 5*.

(*: One iPad 5 in total)

NetIX Now Partner of Amsterdam Internet Exchange

NetIX has joined the reselling program of AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange). The partnership enables NetIX to remotely connect parties to peer at the exchange and enhance their IP service offering.

With over 600 connected networks and a growing community of members extending worldwide, AMS-IX is the world’s largest neutral exchange. AMS-IX enables its customers to benefit from the financial and infrastructure benefits of the 2.5 Tbps (Terabit per second) Internet traffic being exchanged at AMS-IX. Nowadays, close to 80% of the connected networks at AMS-IX are networks from outside the Netherlands, making it the most international IX in the world.

AMS-IX has introduced the AMS-IX Partner Program to allow third parties to resell AMS-IX ports anywhere they have infrastructure connecting to the AMS-IX locations in Amsterdam. Under this program these parties and their services are certified to offer the AMS-IX service remotely. The program is aimed to provide easier access to AMS-IX for new (remote) customers through the AMS-IX partners and to consequently increase the value of the exchange through increased peering benefits.

Key benefits of the AMS-IX Partner Program are that partners are able to deliver full service to their customers – including IP transport, AMS-IX peering ports and customer support -, no investments in equipment have to be made and lower port capacity is available when needed.

The connection with AMS-IX will improve the network performance of NetIX’s customers and will help improve the quality of their IP and peering services. They are also able to add other routes to their existing peers from other IXPs, which will improve the resiliency of their network.

“The partnership with AMS-IX opens new opportunities for our clients and operators in the region who now could benefit from the easier and cost effective connection to AMS-IX and could expand their networks”, says Mr. Neven Dilkov, Managing Director at NetIX.

“We are very pleased that NetIX has joined us as partner”, says Cara Mascini, CMO at AMS-IX. “NetIX has a broad network of customers in Eastern and Western Europe. These customers benefit from NetIX’s interconnection and Ethernet services and will now have direct access to our platform.”

AMS-IX Optimizes Partner Program

In the past years, AMS-IX’s partner network has made a valuable contribution to the growth of the exchange. To further increase partner involvement and to reward successful partners, AMS-IX is introducing an optimized partner program.

In the first half of 2013, AMS-IX received already 71 new connection requests, resulting in 600 connected networks by the end of June 2013 and a total of 1,200+ customer ports. AMS-IX’s reselling partners have generated a large part of these new connection requests.

To help partners to become even more successful, AMS-IX introduces a revised partner program, with new partner levels: Gold Partner, Silver Partner and Partner.

To qualify as Gold Partner, partners have to sell more than 14 applications or 60GE (Gigabit Ethernet) of port capacity per year. Gold Partners will be profiled on the AMS-IX homepage and mentioned in AMS-IX’s annual report. Gold Partners are also allowed to use the AMS-IX Gold Partner logo and will receive support on newsletters, flyers and joint events. And last but not least, AMS-IX will sponsor one promotion activity on which both parties agree beforehand. 

To become Silver Partner, partners have to sell more than 5 applications or 30GE of port capacity. Silver Partners will be displayed noticeably on the AMS-IX website and can use the AMS-IX Silver Partner logo. Silver Partners receive support on newsletters, flyers and joint events.
The regular AMS-IX Partners are mentioned on the website and are allowed to use the AMS-IX logo. New parties who become AMS-IX Partner will be displayed on the website as well and receive additional marketing support in the first 2 months of the partnership.

In January 2014, AMS-IX will announce the first partners to receive the Gold Partner or Silver Partner status. This status will be valid for one year. Other partners reaching the gold or silver level during the year will be upgraded.

Statement AMS-IX BV on expansion to the United States

Introduction

Over the last week, AMS-IX has received a lot of media attention related to its plans to expand the organization into the United States (US) to the establishment of Internet Exchanges there. The AMS-IX BV company’s only shareholder is the AMS-IX Association and therefore the members of this Association had to vote on the plan proposed by the Association’s board, a matter between the members and the board of the Association. As such AMS-IX BV, the AMS-IX operating company, was not in the position to react to the statements made in the media by members or respond to all media requests. Now the voting has taken place(1) AMS-IX BV is the party executing the decision, which is why we can share this statement.

Looking at the media messages and questions that were posed to us, it is clear that there is still a lot of ambiguity about the role and the purpose of Internet Exchanges (IXs) in the Internet infrastructure, and about the AMS-IX organization itself. The question ‘Why’ came up often, as well as a lively online and media discussion on the ‘How’. The latter was especially true in relation to the relevance of the Patriot Act and the influence of US government organisations on the Dutch and European Internet infrastructure. In this statement we endeavor to answer many of these questions asked and welcome any new requests.

AMS-IX organisation

AMS-IX interconnects over 600 IP networks(2), which makes it the world’s largest IX, and as such it has an international role in the Internet infrastructure. This is not a recent development; at the foundation of AMS-IX in 1997 only 5 of the 19 founding members were of Dutch origin. Nowadays, 22% of the networks connected to AMS-IX originate from the Netherlands, including access providers KPN, Ziggo and UPC (though nowadays all of these have US shareholders), but also parties such as the Dutch broadcaster NPO, SURFnet, TMG and hosting provider LeaseWeb. The other 78% of the connected parties come from outside the Netherlands, including Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Netflix and Amazon from the United States, European companies like Deutsche Telekom, Orange, BT, Telefónica and Vodafone, but also Korea Telecom from Korea, Etisalat from the United Arab Emirates, Yandex from Russia and the Australian Internode.

Many connected networks at AMS-IX are members of the AMS-IX Association, which is the sole shareholder of the AMS-IX BV(3). It is a non-profit organization and independent from third parties or the government. Neutrality, independence and trust are the founding principles of the organization. Our organization structure compels us to be as open and transparent as possible about our activities, however the company cannot speak for the Association in case of proposals that the board has put forward to the members. As described in the articles of association, AMS-IX’s only goal is to facilitate the exchange of Internet traffic.

The role and meaning of Internet Exchanges in the Internet infrastructure

The Internet is a network of networks, based on the Internet Protocol (IP). Currently, around 45,000 different unique IP networks exist worldwide, providing functions such as access to end-users, content, application, website hosting and transport. To directly connect all of these networks with each other is technically impossible and cost inefficient. Internet Exchanges have an efficiency role as part of the Internet infrastructure. These platforms are physical locations where networks come together to interconnect and exchange IP traffic with one another. This exchanging of regional, national and/or international IP traffic at an IX is generally known as "public peering". Besides that, networks can directly interconnect with one another (“private/direct peering”) and parties buy connectivity from each other on a commercial basis to particular destinations (‘transit’).

Almost every country has one or more IXs. Most IP networks use all three ways of interconnection, including a connection to several exchanges. This means only a part of the Internet traffic passes through an IX. This traffic always moves from one IP network to the other via control of network equipment of the connected networks. There is no control over the destination and source by the IX and the data is not stored at the Internet Exchange. An IX can be described as a large roundabout where traffic moves through the intersection and exits (so-called ports) from one network to the other (the networks are the roads), but only if the parties involved have agreed beforehand to receive traffic from one another. The IX does not have custody and control over the content of the data or the source related and destination networks. It also cannot look into the data.

End-users do not connect at IXs. They use the services of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) or telecom companies. These types of companies store personal information and user data. The same applies to the use of content services, websites or applications at the corresponding companies. The collection of personal information and user data does not take place at AMS-IX.

Large volumes of Internet traffic that the connected parties have decided to exchange with each other pass through public peering at AMS-IX. At this moment, traffic at AMS-IX has a peak of 2,5 Terabit per second (Tb/s) and a daily volume of around 16 PetaByte (PB). It contains fragmented data of millions of individual end-users, companies and online services. When using the roundabout analogy again, the road facilitator (AMS-IX) does not need any knowledge of the traffic’s content or vehicle owners to build and manage the road. Nor does the road facilitator has control over the vehicles or is responsible for the content.

AMS-IX BV strategy and why the US

Each year the members of the AMS-IX Association need to approve the long-term strategy of the company in a plan for the coming four years in a General Assembly Meeting. The current strategic objectives are:
1 - Continued high quality day-to-day operation of AMS-IX Amsterdam
2 - Build AMS-IX Hong Kong into a successful regional hub, a principal market place
3 - Expand AMS-IX Caribbean to become the regional hub for the Caribbean
4 - Through collaborative partnerships and exchange management extend the AMS-IX footprint globally
- in growing/emerging markets
- in (potential) hub locations

During 2013, the Open-IX initiative created the opportunity to expand into the US. Representatives from content providers, telecom operators and other Internet industry experts, such as datacenters, founded this initiative. It aims to encourage the development of neutral and distributed Internet Exchanges and reduce IP interconnect complexity and cost in the US. In the US this is more complicated and higher priced than in Europe, where the neutral and distributed over more than one datacenter Internet Exchange model, that AMS-IX also uses, is more common. Open-IX research among market parties has identified a number of cities in which this model would be very welcome.

In light of the above strategy, AMS-IX BV and the board of the AMS-IX Association were of the opinion that AMS-IX BV should actively pursue this opportunity. A proposal for endorsement therefore needs to be put forward to the Open-IX board before the end of October. However, the management of the BV (and the board of the Association) do not think it’s sound business practice to undertake these activities in the current Dutch BV due to the potential risks this entails. In the press the risks from interception by US authorities and agencies were mostly discussed but also other risks such as liability, financial and commercial risk need to be mitigated as much as possible. Hence the proposal by the board to the members of the Association for the founding of a separate legal entity in the US.

The USA Patriot Act and the risk of interception for Dutch connected parties by US intelligence and surveillance agencies

The Patriot Act(4)  is a series of amendments to existing US regulation on the interception of communication, such as the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act (FISA) and the Stored Communications Act. Under the Patriot Act, US intelligence and surveillance agencies gather intelligence information about non-US persons located outside the US. US-based companies have an obligation to cooperate with the US government in case of valid requests for information or data in their custody or control.

In light of a possible interception risk for the Dutch connected networks by US intelligence and surveillance agencies two aspects are important.

First there is the question whether data exchanged between the connected parties over the Internet exchange is susceptible to lawful interception under the relevant US regulation. Second is whether as a result of the founding of a separate legal entity in the US this particular risk increases for the parties connected to the IX in the Netherlands.

The Amsterdam based SOLV law firm(5), specialized in telecom, Internet and new media law, has advised AMS-IX as follows:

SOLV: Only the US entity to be established by AMS-IX shall have to comply with requests from agencies as prescribed by the Patriot Act with regards to data it retains under its custody or control. The US entity will not have access, not by organization nor by infrastructure, to the traffic peered on the exchange platform in Amsterdam. Moreover, AMS-IX does not, as Internet Exchange platform, in the Netherlands and in the US once formed, have access to the content of such traffic. Nor does the organization have direct control or custody of the data, and the data is not stored on the organization’s equipment. 
In the Netherlands, government requests for information are directed to service providers. Therefore, if US intelligence and surveillance agencies were to argue that AMS-IX B.V. is subject to the Patriot Act on account of its presence in the US, AMS-IX B.V. shall in our opinion not be obliged to comply with requests regarding traffic that is peered on the AMS-IX platform in Amsterdam, as the information is not in its custody or control.

In addition, members/clients that have a presence in the US or that are connected at US based Internet Exchanges, already fall under the scope of the Patriot Act. The incorporation of a US affiliate shall not have an additional impact.

Prof. dr. N.A.N.M. van Eijk and the Institute of Information Law concluded in some research papers that entities that perform activities in the US will have to cooperate with information requests from the US government. Van Eijk acknowledged that an entity cannot produce information to which it has no access, since information requests can only cover information a company has access to, whether stored in the US or outside of the US. Van Eijk also recognized that the effect of organizational safeguards, such as certain organizational structures, was not part of the research.

SOLV adds that a US entity may benefit from additional organizational safeguards, to further limit exposure to the Patriot Act, if it is applicable.

In the period leading up to the voting of last week the management of the company and board of the Association have already been advised by Jones Day(6). Jones Day states the following to the question if the US Patriot Act will have any jurisdiction in relation to the AMS-IX Association and AMS-IX BV when an operational subsidiary in the United States is created.

Jones Day: No.

In the US, courts have held that a company with a presence in the US is obligated to respond to a valid demand for information by the US government (made under the (laws that have been amended by the) US Patriot Act) if the company retains custody or control over the data. These obligations of the company in the US may be extended to data and information held by the US company's affiliates, provided the US company retains custody and control of such data and information (this is for example the case if the foreign affiliate holds information belonging to the US company in connection with the provision of inter-company services). A foreign affiliate of the US company cannot be forced to cooperate with such a request.

Moreover Jones Day confirms that:

Several federal laws define specific rules that may apply to companies providing interconnection services. However, such laws do not extend to foreign entities over which the US government does not have jurisdiction. A similar regime exists under state law. Generally, a US interconnection company can be required under US law to produce documents that are held by a foreign affiliate for criminal proceedings in the US. However, the foreign affiliate will not have liability for such failure.

AMS-IX has no custody or control over the data that is exchanged over its platform, does not store data or has access to any of the personal identity information of the many individual Internet users of the networks that are connected to the exchange platform. AMS-IX is by no means inviting or supporting the US government to come and intercept Dutch, European or traffic of any destination or source. Perhaps clear but worthwhile to repeat, the AMS-IX exchanges are not interconnected to each other. They are separate infrastructures in the particular geographic region. In other words, even if US intelligence and surveillance agencies were to access the US-based IX, there would be no means of reaching the Amsterdam based-IX as there is no direct interconnection between the platforms.

Next steps

AMS-IX company is pleased that the members vote confirmed that the opportunity in the US aligns with the previously communicated strategic direction and will execute accordingly. Jones Day already has prepared initial potential structures for the board and management with the financial, commercial, legal and general business risks. These will now be further detailed. Before a final choice is made, the board will inform the members about the pros and cons of the possible structures in an interactive information session in the second half of October. When the board has reached a decision AMS-IX BV will implement the chosen structure. From that moment on we can share information externally about the particular structure.

Verklaring AMS-IX BV inzake uitbreiding naar de Verenigde Staten

Introductie

In de afgelopen week is er in de media veel verschenen over plannen van AMS-IX om in de Verenigde Staten (VS) een onderneming op te richten om ook daar Internet Exchanges te kunnen opzetten. Aangezien de enige aandeelhouder van het bedrijf AMS-IX BV de vereniging AMS-IX is, hebben de leden van deze vereniging moeten stemmen over een voorstel van het bestuur voor de opzet van dit nieuwe bedrijf. Een dergelijk voorstel dat ter tafel komt, alsmede de stemming zelf, is een zaak tussen de leden en het bestuur van de vereniging, en AMS-IX BV heeft daarom niet in de media kunnen reageren op uitlatingen van enkele leden en een deel van de persvragen. Nu de stemming heeft plaatsgevonden(1), is AMS-IX BV als uitvoerende partij betrokken. Vandaar nu wel een reactie.

Uit de berichtgeving en vragen die ons bereiken, blijkt dat er nog veel onduidelijkheid is over de rol en het belang van een Internet Exchange (IX) in de internet-infrastructuur, alsook over de organisatie AMS-IX. Ook de ‘waarom’ vraag is veel gesteld, naast veel discussie over het ‘hoe’. De toepasselijkheid van de Patriot Act en de invloed van de VS op de Nederlandse/Europese internet-infrastructuur was ook een punt van discussie. We pogen in deze verklaring veel van deze gestelde vragen te beantwoorden en staan daarbij open voor nieuwe verzoeken.

AMS-IX organisatie

AMS-IX is met meer dan 600 aangesloten netwerken(2) de grootste IX wereldwijd en heeft een internationale rol in de internet-infrastructuur. Deze internationale rol was er al vanaf de start: van de 19 organisaties die AMS-IX oprichtten in 1997, waren er slechts 5 van puur Nederlandse oorsprong. Tegenwoordig heeft 22% van de AMS-IX aangesloten partijen een Nederlandse achtergrond, waaronder toegangsnetwerken als KPN, Ziggo en UPC (alhoewel deze tegenwoordig alle drie aandeelhouders uit de VS hebben), maar ook NPO, SURFnet, TMG, LeaseWeb en vele anderen. De overige 78% komt van over de hele wereld naar Amsterdam, en heeft uiteenlopende profielen: denk aan Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Netflix en Amazon uit de VS en Europese bedrijven zoals Deutsche Telekom, Orange, BT, Telefonica, Vodafone, maar ook Etisalat uit de Verenigde Arabische Emiraten, Korea Telecom uit Korea, Yandex uit Rusland en Internode uit Australië.

Een groot deel van deze partijen is lid van de vereniging Amsterdam Internet Exchange, die op haar beurt 100% aandeelhouder is van de AMS-IX BV(3). De organisatie heeft geen winstoogmerk en is onafhankelijk van derden, de overheid incluis. Neutraliteit, onafhankelijkheid en vertrouwen vormen de basis van het bestaan van AMS-IX. AMS-IX is zo open en transparant mogelijk over haar activiteiten. De BV kan echter niet spreken voor de vereniging als het gaat over voorstellen die ter stemming liggen bij de leden. Het enige doel van de organisatie, zoals vastgelegd in de statuten, is het faciliteren van de uitwisseling van (internet-)verkeer.

Rol en belang Internet Exchanges in de internet-infrastructuur

Het internet is een netwerk van netwerken, gebaseerd op het gebruik van het Internet Protocol (IP). Wereldwijd zijn er circa 45.000 verschillende autonome IP-netwerken. Hier horen transportnetwerken bij, de Internet Service Providers (ISPs) die eindgebruikers toegang verlenen, en natuurlijk ook de vele content-, hosting- en applicatieproviders. Het is fysiek en kostentechnisch niet haalbaar deze netwerken allemaal direct aan elkaar te koppelen. Een Internet Exchange (IX) vervult hier een efficiëntie rol als onderdeel van de internet-infrastructuur. IX’s beheren apparatuur op fysieke locaties waar vele van deze netwerken met hun eigen apparatuur op kunnen aansluiten om met elkaar een interconnectie aan te gaan en bilateraal verkeer uit te wisselen (ook wel genoemd 'public peering'). Daarnaast kunnen netwerken ook direct met elkaar koppelen ('private/direct peering') en kopen partijen connectiviteit in bij andere netwerken voor bepaalde bestemmingen op commerciële basis ('transit').

Vrijwel elk land in de wereld kent één of meerdere IX’s. De meeste IP-netwerken maken gebruik van alle drie de manieren van interconnectie, waaronder aansluiting op meerdere exchanges. Bij een Internet Exchange passeert dus slechts een deel van het internetverkeer. Dit verkeer gaat altijd van het ene IP-netwerk naar het andere via aansturing van de netwerkapparatuur van de klant. De IX heeft daar geen controle over en de data wordt niet opgeslagen bij de Internet Exchange. Een IX is als het ware een grote rotonde waar verkeer via de op- en afritten (ook wel genoemd ‘poorten’) van het ene naar het andere netwerk gaat (de netwerken zijn hier de wegen), maar alleen als er vooraf is aangegeven dat de betrokken partijen verkeer van elkaar accepteren. De IX heeft dus geen controle en verantwoordelijkheid over de inhoud van de data en het verkeer tussen de partijen. Daar heeft deze ook geen inzage in.

Bij Internet Exchanges sluiten geen eindgebruikers aan, deze nemen diensten af van ISP’s of telecombedrijven. De ISP's of telecombedrijven hebben de beschikking over hun persoonsgegevens en desgewenst inzage in de communicatie. Dat geldt ook voor het gebruik van content, applicaties of het bezoeken van websites door die eindgebruikers. Daar blijven geen data of gegevens over hangen bij AMS-IX, zelfs niet tijdelijk, en AMS-IX heeft er daarom geen enkele inzage in.

Bij AMS-IX komt op hoog aggregatieniveau het internetverkeer langs dat de aangesloten netwerken bilateraal besluiten met elkaar uit te wisselen via public peering in Amsterdam. Dit gebeurt met enorme snelheden die momenteel pieken op 2,5 Terabit per seconde en een dagelijks volume van circa 16 PetaByte. Dit internetverkeer bevat gefragmenteerde data van vele miljoenen verschillende eindgebruikers, bedrijven en online-diensten van over de hele wereld. De rotonde analogie nogmaals aanhalend: de wegbeheerder heeft geen kennis nodig van de inhoud van het transport of de eigenaar van de voertuigen om de weg aan te leggen en naar behoren te beheren. Noch heeft de wegbeheerder het beheer over de voertuigen of de verantwoordelijkheid daarvoor.

De strategie van AMS-IX BV en waarom de VS

Elk jaar keurt de vereniging de lange-termijn-strategie die de BV dient te volgen in de komende vier jaar goed in een algemene ledenvergadering. De huidige strategische doelstellingen zijn als volgt:
1. Het zo veel mogelijk garanderen van een ononderbroken hoge kwaliteit dienstverlening van AMS-IX Amsterdam (de “main hub”)
2. Het uitbouwen van AMS-IX Hong Kong naar een succesvolle regionale hub, een belangrijk internet-interconnectie-knooppunt
3. Het uitbreiden van AMS-IX Caribbean naar een regio-brede IX
4. Door middel van samenwerkingen en IX-management AMS-IX wereldwijd uitbreiden
a. In groeiende en opkomende markten
b. In (potentiele) hub locaties.

In de loop van 2013 ontstond in de VS het zogenaamde Open-IX-initiatief, opgezet door internettoegang- en contentbedrijven, waarvan vele huidige AMS-IX leden en klanten zijn. Open-IX richt zich op het stimuleren van de ontwikkeling van neutrale en gedistribueerde Internet Exchanges in de VS naar Europees model. Het doel is de verbetering van de IP-interconnectie-infrastructuur en met name het reduceren van de kosten hiervan. Dit is namelijk in de VS complexer en duurder dan in Europa, waar het neutrale en over meerdere datacenters verspreidde IX-model, zoals AMS-IX ook hanteert, meer gebruikelijk is. Open-IX heeft na onderzoek bij marktpartijen een 10-tal steden geïdentificeerd waar een neutrale IX naar Europees model zeer welkom zou zijn.

Gezien de bovenstaande strategie hebben AMS-IX BV en het bestuur van de vereniging gevonden dat AMS-IX BV hier een waardevolle bijdrage zou kunnen leveren en dat we er actief mee aan de slag moesten gaan. Vanwege een endorsement-procedure zou een eventueel voorstel van AMS-IX voor eind oktober dit jaar bij de Open-IX board moeten liggen. Het management van de BV (en het bestuur van de vereniging) vond en vindt het echter niet raadzaam om de activiteiten in de VS in de Nederlandse BV te ontplooien, vanwege risico’s die dat met zich mee kan brengen. In de pers is gerefereerd aan de risico’s rond mogelijke interceptie van IP-verkeer door de diverse Amerikaanse overheids- en veiligheidsdiensten, maar ook aansprakelijkheid en andere bedrijfstechnische risico’s moeten zoveel mogelijk worden uitgesloten. Vandaar het voorstel van het bestuur aan de AMS-IX vereniging voor de oprichting van een aparte juridische entiteit in de VS.

De USA Patriot Act en het interceptierisico voor Nederlandse aangesloten partijen door Amerikaanse inlichtingen- en opsporingsdiensten

De USA Patriot Act(4) betreft een serie aanpassingen van bestaande Amerikaanse regelgeving op het gebied van het onderscheppen van communicatie, zoals de ‘Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Act’ (FISA) en de ‘Stored Communications Act’. Onder de Patriot Act kunnen Amerikaanse inlichtingen- en opsporingsdiensten informatie verzamelen over buitenlandse personen en bedrijven. Bedrijven die in de VS zijn gevestigd zijn verplicht hieraan mee te werken in geval van rechtmatige verzoeken daartoe, voor zover het informatie betreft die onder hun beheer en verantwoordelijkheid valt.

In het kader van een mogelijk interceptierisico voor Nederlandse aangesloten partijen door Amerikaanse inlichtingen- en opsporingsdiensten zijn twee aspecten van belang.

Ten eerste is het de vraag in hoeverre het verkeer tussen de aangesloten partijen over een Internet Exchange überhaupt vatbaar voor interceptie is onder de betreffende Amerikaanse regelgeving. Ten tweede is het relevant of het opzetten door AMS-IX van een aparte entiteit in de VS een mogelijk aanwezige risico voor de in Nederland aangesloten partijen vergroot.

Het Amsterdamse SOLV advocaten, gespecialiseerd in telecom, internet en nieuwe mediarecht, heeft AMS-IX als volgt geadviseerd:

SOLV: Alleen de Amerikaanse entiteit zal moeten voldoen aan verzoeken van de Amerikaanse overheid. De Amerikaanse entiteit zal in de beoogde opzet geen toegang krijgen, zowel niet feitelijk als organisatorisch, tot het verkeer dat wordt uitgewisseld op het platform in Amsterdam. Bovendien heeft AMS-IX, als Internet Exchange platform, in Nederland en straks ook in de VS, geen toegang tot de inhoud van het verkeer dat over haar platform gaat. Noch heeft zij hierover direct het beheer of de verantwoordelijkheid, en ook wordt de data niet opgeslagen. In Nederland richt daarom de overheid verzoeken om informatie betreffende data tot aanbieders van communicatiediensten. Noch de Nederlandse BV nu of de Amerikaanse entiteit straks zal door de huidige technische opzet in de positie zijn om de Amerikaanse overheidsdiensten toegang te geven tot de data die over haar platform wordt uitgewisseld. Daarom beargumenteren wij dat indien de Amerikaanse overheidsdiensten zouden aangeven dat AMS-IX BV, omdat zij een operatie in de VS heeft onder de Patriot Act valt, AMS-IX BV niet hoeft te voldoen aan het verzoek om data die wordt uitgewisseld over haar platform te laten inzien, aangezien zij geen controle of beheer hierover heeft, noch deze data opslaat.

Bovendien, bestaande klanten en leden van AMS-IX die met hun netwerk al een aanwezigheid in de VS hebben, dan wel continu of systematisch zaken doen met partijen in de VS, zoals verkeer uitwisselen over een exchange platform of andere vormen van interconnectie, vallen momenteel al onder de reikwijdte van de Patriot Act.

Prof. dr. N.A.N.M. van Eijk en het Instituut voor Informatiestudies concluderen in een aantal onderzoeksrapporten dat partijen met activiteiten in de VS zullen moeten meewerken aan informatieverzoeken van de Amerikaanse overheidsdiensten. Van Eijk bevestigt dat een bedrijf niet verantwoordelijk gesteld kan worden tot het leveren van data tot welke het geen toegang heeft, aangezien dit enkel toepasbaar is wanneer het bedrijf ook daadwerkelijk beschikt over de informatie, of het zich nu op Amerikaanse bodem of elders bevindt.
Van Eijk geeft mede aan dat de opzet van organisatiestructuren om te zorgen voor organisatorische afscheiding geen onderdeel was van de betreffende onderzoeken.
SOLV geeft aan dat een aparte entiteit in de VS kan helpen om de Nederlandse organisatie te beschermen en de impact van de Patriot Act te beperken, voor zover deze van toepassing is.

Al in het voortraject voor de stemming van afgelopen week hebben het bestuur en het managementteam van AMS-IX zich laten adviseren door Jones Day(5). Jones Day geeft het volgende aan op de vraag of de US Patriot Act van toepassing is op de AMS-IX Vereniging en AMS-IX BV als een operationele dochtermaatschappij wordt opgezet in de VS.

Jones Day: Nee.

Op grond van Amerikaanse jurisprudentie is een vennootschap met een aanwezigheid in de Verenigde Staten verplicht te reageren op een rechtmatig verzoek om informatie door de Amerikaanse overheid (op basis van (de wet- en regelgeving die zijn gewijzigd door) de US Patriot Act) indien die vennootschap “custody or control” over die gegevens heeft. Deze verplichting voor de vennootschap in de Verenigde Staten kan zich uitbreiden naar informatie en data die worden gehouden door verbonden partijen van de Amerikaanse vennootschap, onder de voorwaarde dat de Amerikaanse vennootschap “custody or control” over deze informatie of data heeft behouden (wat bijvoorbeeld het geval is als een buitenlandse groepsmaatschappij informatie die toebehoort aan de Amerikaanse vennootschap onder zich heeft in verband met het verrichten van diensten binnen de groep). Een buitenlandse groepsmaatschappij kan niet gedwongen worden om aan een dergelijk verzoek mee te werken.

Tevens bevestigt Jones Day dat:

Federale wetgeving bevat specifieke regels die van toepassing kunnen zijn op bedrijven die interconnectiediensten verlenen. Deze regelgeving is echter niet van toepassing op buitenlandse vennootschappen waarover de Verenigde Staten geen jurisdictie uitoefenen.

In het algemeen kan een Amerikaanse interconnectieonderneming naar Amerikaans recht verplicht worden om documenten die worden gehouden door een buitenlandse groepsmaatschappij te produceren in het kader van strafrechtelijke procedures in de VS. De buitenlandse groepsmaatschappij zal voor enig verzuim niet aansprakelijk zijn.

AMS-IX heeft geen toegang tot of controle over de data die over haar platform gaat, slaat geen data op, noch beschikt zij over persoonsgegevens van de vele individuele internetgebruikers van haar aangesloten partijen. AMS-IX is geenszins van plan de Amerikaanse overheid uit te nodigen om haar platform, in Nederland of in het buitenland, te laten aftappen. Misschien ten overvloede, de verschillende AMS-IX Internet Exchanges zijn niet onderling gekoppeld. Het zijn op zichzelf staande infrastructuren in de betreffende geografische lokaties. Met andere woorden, mocht het zo zijn dat de Amerikaanse inlichtingen- en opsporingsdiensten de Amerikaanse IX zouden aftappen dan is er geen verbinding met de Amsterdamse IX.

Volgende stappen

AMS-IX is verheugd dat de leden inderdaad onderschrijven dat de kansen in de VS passen in het uitgezette beleid en zal hiermee aan de slag gaan. Jones Day heeft in het voortraject al een aantal initiële structuren uitgewerkt voor de board en het management waarbij de financiële, commerciële, juridische en bedrijfstechnische risico’s in kaart zijn gebracht. Deze opties worden nu verder uitgewerkt. De leden zullen hierover van informatie worden voorzien. Voordat een definitief besluit valt, zal de board de structuren met de voor- en nadelen delen met de leden in een interactieve informatiesessie, waarschijnlijk rond half oktober. Dit zullen wederom besloten verenigingssessies zijn. Als de board een besluit heeft genomen, zal de AMS-IX BV de uitvoering daarvan op zich nemen. Op dat moment kan ook extern nadere informatie over de gekozen structuur worden verstrekt.

Meerderheid AMS-IX-leden steunt opzet juridische entiteit in de VS

Zoals afgelopen week aangekondigd, heeft de Raad van Bestuur van de AMS-IX vereniging voorgesteld om een juridische entiteit in de Verenigde Staten op te zetten, voor mogelijke uitbreiding naar de VS. In een buitengewone Algemene Ledenvergadering op 27 september hebben de AMS-IX-leden met een meerderheid van stemmen de opzet van een juridische entiteit in de VS goedgekeurd.

Met het Open-IX initiatief werd AMS-IX recent de mogelijkheid geboden om uit te breiden en Internetknooppunten te ontwikkelen in de VS. Vertegenwoordigers van in de VS gevestigde content providers, telecomoperators – onder wie veel AMS-IX-leden of -klanten – en andere partijen in de Internetindustrie, zoals datacenters, hebben dit initiatief in de VS opgezet. Doelstelling van het initiatief is het stimuleren van de ontwikkeling van neutrale en gedistribueerde Internet exchanges en het reduceren van de complexiteit van IP interconnectie en kosten in de VS. In de VS is dit gecompliceerder en duurder dan in Europa, waar het neutrale en gedistribueerde Internet exchange-model meer gemeengoed is.

Onze doelstelling om de operationele activiteiten van het bedrijf in het buitenland uit te breiden is in lijn met onze Lange Termijn Commerciële Strategie (LTCS), die in eerdere Algemene Ledenvergaderingen door onze leden is goedgekeurd. Desondanks heeft het bestuur aan de leden voorgesteld om een juridische entiteit in de VS op te zetten om de mogelijke risico’s voor de AMS-IX B.V. en klanten en leden van de vereniging AMS-IX te minimaliseren.

Met de goedkeuring van onze leden, zal de Raad van Bestuur van de AMS-IX vereniging de formatie van een juridische entiteit in de VS verder onderzoeken. De beste mogelijke structuren voor het opzetten van deze juridische entiteit zullen worden bekeken en met onze leden worden gedeeld. De structuur dient de huidige operationele activiteiten van de AMS-IX B.V. en de klanten en leden van de AMS-IX vereniging te beschermen tegen commerciële, juridische, financiële en technische risico’s en meest specifiek tegen interceptie-activiteiten door de overheidsinstanties in de VS.

Notitie:
De elektronische stemomgeving – waarvoor de vertegenwoordigende AMS-IX-leden individueel worden uitgenodigd – opende op 27 september, 24:00 uur en sloot op 28 september, 24:00 uur. De elektronische stemming werd uitgevoerd door BigPulse, een notarieel goedgekeurde omgeving voor elektronisch stemmen.


Majority of AMS-IX members support set up of US-based legal entity

As announced earlier, the Board of the AMS-IX Association proposed the set up of a US-based legal entity for possible expansion to the United States. In an extraordinary General Meeting (GM) held on 27 September 2013, AMS-IX members approved the set up of a US-based legal entity by a majority of votes.

Recently, an opportunity arose with the Open-IX initiative for AMS-IX to expand and build exchanges in the US. Representatives from US-based content providers and telecom operators - many of them current AMS-IX members or customers – as well as other Internet industry parties, such as datacenters, founded this initiative. It aims to encourage the development of neutral and distributed Internet exchanges and reduce IP interconnection complexity and cost in the US. In the US this is more complicated and prices are higher than in Europe, where the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model is more common.

Our aim to grow AMS-IX’s operational base abroad is in line with our Long Term Commercial Strategy (LTCS), which was approved in previous General Meetings by our members. However, to minimize the possible risk for our members and customers and to become Open-IX endorsed, the Board proposed the set up of a legal entity in the US. Risk mitigation is extremely important to us and we would never jeopardize the Dutch Association, the Dutch B.V and thus the members of AMS-IX.

With the approval of our members, the Board of the AMS-IX Association will now further investigate the formation of a US-based legal entity. The best possible structures for setting up this legal entity will be reviewed and shared with the members. The chosen structure will need to protect AMS-IX’s current operation and the AMS-IX Association’s customers and members from commercial, legal, financial and technical risks and, more specifically, from interception activities by US government agencies.

Note:
Electronic voting opened on 27 September, 2013 at 12:00AM and closed on 28 September, 2013 at 12:00AM. AMS-IX member representatives were invited to vote individually. The electronic voting was handled by BigPulse, a notary approved environment for e-voting.

Statement regarding proposal US based legal entity

Earlier this month the Board of the AMS-IX Association has done a proposal to our members to setup a US based legal entity for possible expansion to the United States. The past few days a discussion has been taking place on an internal AMS-IX mailing list about the possible consequences of having a separate entity there. As the strategy of AMS-IX represents the interests of its members, we are welcoming this discussion and also taking notice of their feedback. Following the concerns of some of our members on the mailing list and in the Dutch press on the proposal we would like to provide more detail.

Earlier this year the opportunity arose by the Open-IX initiative to expand to the US. Representatives from content providers, telecom operators and other Internet industry experts, such as datacenters, founded this initiative. It aims to encourage the development of neutral and distributed Internet exchanges and reduce IP interconnect complexity and cost in the US. In the US this is more complicated and higher priced than in Europe, where the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model is common.

The Open-IX initiative is in line with our Long Term Commercial Strategy (LTCS), which has been approved in previous General Meetings by our members. Our aim is to soundly grow the company's operational base and increase economies of scale in a controlled manner. It is up to the AMS-IX BV to manage the operations and reputation plus making sure that the organization is able to absorb the new activities.

To comply with the Open-IX initiative and minimize risk for our members and customers, the board has proposed to setup a separate legal entity in the US. This risk mitigation is of high importance to us, because we will of course never jeopardize the Dutch Association, the Dutch B.V. and thus the members of AMS-IX.

What the best possible structure should be of this US based legal entity is still under investigation by our lawyers. To be able to proceed we hope to get approval from our members, for setting up a legal entity that will meet everybody’s concerns, this coming Friday, the 27th of September, in an extraordinary General Meeting.

Representatives from content providers, telecom operators and other Internet industry experts, such as datacenters, founded this initiative. It aims to encourage the development of neutral and distributed Internet exchanges and reduce IP interconnect complexity and cost in the US. In the US this is more complicated and higher priced than in Europe, where the neutral and distributed Internet exchange model is common.

The Open-IX initiative is in line with our Long Term Commercial Strategy (LTCS), which has been approved in previous General Meetings by our members. Our aim is to soundly grow the company's operational base and increase economies of scale in a controlled manner. It is up to the AMS-IX BV to manage the operations and reputation plus making sure that the organization is able to absorb the new activities.

To comply with the Open-IX initiative and minimize risk for our members and customers, the board has proposed to setup a separate legal entity in the US. This risk mitigation is of high importance to us, because we will of course never jeopardize the Dutch Association, the Dutch B.V. and thus the members of AMS-IX.

What the best possible structure should be of this US-based legal entity is still under investigation by our lawyers. To be able to proceed we hope to get approval from our members, for setting up a legal entity that will meet everybody’s concerns, this coming Friday, the 27th of September, in an extraordinary General Meeting.

SEACOM to be the First Pan-African Reseller of the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point

AMS-IX expands services into Africa with a new regional Internet Exchange hub

SEACOM, a pan-African ICT enabler, will be the first reseller of the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point in Mombasa, Kenya, which is planned to go live mid-November. This new exchange is an initiative of AMS-IX in conjunction with the Telecommunications Service Providers Association of Kenya (TESPOK) and will further enhance connectivity within the East African region.

Earlier, SEACOM already had expanded its European connectivity to Amsterdam and joined the AMS-IX reselling program. Being part of the program gives SEACOM the opportunity to make connectivity to the AMS-IX platform more easily available to African Internet networks and thus greatly enhancing peering and IP interconnection between African and European networks.

“To have a good interconnection and Internet performance in the region, the setup of an Internet exchange hub is essential. With our experience and knowledge we can make a valuable contribution.” explains Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. “At the same time, we want to keep AMS-IX relevant for our members and customers. SEACOM has the services and connectivity to bring new unique networks from the African continent to Amsterdam, making it an important partner for AMS-IX.

Mark Simpson, CEO of SEACOM says: “SEACOM is proud to support this initiative because we see peering between African networks and service providers as one of the most vital issues for the telecommunications industry. This new peering platform has the potential to deliver a better Internet experience for all users in the regions that SEACOM touches, Southern and East Africa, Europe, India and Asia, at lower costs all while boosting the country’s Internet economy.”

AMS-IX Starts New Regional Internet Exchange Hub in Mombasa, Kenya, in Collaboration with KIXP

Ports to the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point ready for order

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange) is building a new peering platform in Mombasa, Kenya, to help develop East Africa’s regional Internet interconnection. This initiative is in collaboration with the Kenya Internet Exchange Point (KIXP) and builds on the successful and proven design of AMS-IX in Europe. The new exchange hub, the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point, will enable networks in the African continent to access other networks via a single platform.

SEACOM, as a pan-African ICT enabler, will be the first reseller of the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange platform as well as providing connectivity from the exchange to Amsterdam. As a result, Internet companies in Africa will have the ability to peer with over 600 IP networks at AMS-IX in Amsterdam.

As of today, parties can already order a connection to the AMS-IX East Africa Exchange Point, which is planned to go live mid-November 2013. Available port connections are Ethernet (E), Fast Ethernet (FE), 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) and 10GE. When connecting through reseller SEACOM, port capacities from 10 to 1000 Mbps are also offered.

With the development of a professional Internet hub in Kenya, AMS-IX and KIXP are further extending their partnership. In 2011, AMS-IX began collaborating with KIXP, which is operated by the Telecommunication Service Providers Association of Kenya (TESPOK), which included the donation of AMS-IX Gigabit Ethernet equipment.

Job Witteman, CEO at AMS-IX, says: “East Africa is an important emerging market, led by Kenya, especially from an ICT point of view. Interconnection is becoming more and more essential to enable the region’s developing business activity. Together with KIXP we aim to contribute by helping to improve the African Internet ecosystem.”

Fiona Asonga, CEO at KIXP, says: “Cooperating with a more established global IXP such as AMS-IX has been worthwhile. This partnership is yet another opportunity for KIXP to add value to the local Internet scene both for the operators and consumers who stand to benefit from an enhanced online experience. It is TESPOK’s hope that this arrangement will significantly contribute to Kenya being the ICT hub for the region.”

LyonIX, principal diffuseur d'OpenStreetMap en Afrique

Depuis Mai 2013, LyonIX, le nœud d'échange Internet de Lyon, héberge un serveur OpenStreetMap (OSM), un projet cartographique gratuit et participatif. Dès le départ, le serveur hébergé par l'IXP lyonnais diffusait le contenu du projet majoritairement vers le continent africain et sur une partie du Moyen-Orient. Aujourd'hui 100 % du contenu d'OpenStreetMap diffusé en Afrique provient du serveur hébergé par LyonIX. Source : site officiel de OSM : http://dns.openstreetmap.org/tile.openstreetmap.org.html

A propos d'OpenStreetMap

Lancé en 2004, OpenStreetMap est un projet collaboratif international. Il a pour but de produire une cartographie du monde, libre de droit et participative. Ainsi chacun peut apporter ses modifications, allant de la correction du nom de sa rue jusqu'à la création de cartes thématiques. On trouve aujourd'hui un grand nombre de cartes variées, tel que les réseaux de distribution électrique, le cadastre pour certains pays, ou encore la cartographie des zones inondées au Soudan afin d'assister les actions d'aides humanitaires.

Ce projet propose des applications et des intérêts divers qui sont maintenant disponibles sur le continent Africain dans de bonnes conditions de débit et de rapidité d'utilisation. Ce serveur OpenStreetMap est hébergé sur LyonIX, le premier point d'échange Internet régional en France, en activité depuis 2001 et regroupant plus de 70 membres interconnectés. LyonIX est une infrastructure Internet qui permet l'échange de données en Très Haut Débit pour les participants : opérateurs Télécom, fournisseurs d'accès Internet, SSII, grands comptes, collectivités locales et acteurs publics.

Grâce à cette association, les Africains accèdent désormais à des cartes complètes, de bonne qualité, modifiables et surtout disponibles en Très Haut Débit. Une opportunité pour les populations africaines de les optimiser, en local comme à l’international en y rajoutant leurs observations, ou de créer des cartes spécifiques à leurs besoins et de les utiliser librement.
