We are happy to announce a new location in Leipzig, Germany. DE-CIX Leipzig is the first Internet Exchange for the German states of Brandenburg, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia and will be located in the data centers of envia TEL and PŸUR Business. Both operators will also act as resellers for our interconnection services.

Access global digital ecosystem

DE-CIX Leipzig is scheduled to go into operation end of 2022 and it will be connected to DE-CIX Frankfurt, allowing access to global digital ecosystem with major international players such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Akamai, Netflix, and Facebook.

In addition, DE-CIX Leipzig will reduce the round-trip time, and lead to a more stable network for applications like cloud computing, VoIP connections, video, gaming, and music streaming.

By enabling local data exchange, the new exchange will further improve the Internet quality for connected businesses in the region.
