3U TELECOM sponsors new BCIX site
- Construction of a new BCIX node at the 3U Berlin data centre
- Customers benefit from direct physical connectivity to the peering point
Marburg, 15. December 2016. 3U TELECOM GmbH has been hosting BCIX (Berlin Commercial Internet Exchange e. V.) in its data centre in Lorenzweg, Berlin since December 2016. BCIX is the independent peering point for Berlin and Brandenburg.
„We are pleased to support BCIX in its expansion course. At the same time, we evaluate the development of the new BCIX node at our Berlin site as a clear signal of confidence in our data centre,“ states Uwe Knoke, Managing Director of 3U TELECOM.
For the colocation customers of 3U TELECOM the partnership opens up a further attractive location on Berlin’s data centre market as they benefit from direct physical connectivity to the „Berlin Commercial Internet Exchange“.
This means that BCIX is now available for 3U TELECOM customers at their Berlin site with a bandwidth of 1 Gbit/s, 10 Gbit/s or 100 Gbit/s. The advantage is the saving of expensive leased lines, over which otherwise the required connections would have to be made.
„Our focus is on constantly improving our services and ongoing cost optimisation for our customers. By working with BCIX, we get one step closer to this goal. Our customers can therefore be connected to the „Berlin Commercial Internet Exchange“ quickly and inexpensively,“ explains Uwe Knoke.
In addition to Internet peering, BCIX also offers networking for all its seven Berlin colocation sites. 3U TELECOM customers can thus offer their services spread geographically over separated data centres.
