DE-CIX wins Capacity Award 2019 as Best Internet Exchange

We are proud announce that we have been honored again at the Capacity Awards as Best Internet Exchange! DE-CIX has always been at the forefront of Internet Exchange development, and DE-CIX is the leading IX globally. Not only in regards to numbers of peak traffic and connected networks but also in regards of developing and launching services and innovations. In addition to introducing the first automated patch robots at an IX worldwide, DE-CIX was the first IX to offer 400GE access technology. This year’s award recognizes once again DE-CIX’s outstanding position as interconnection provider in the IX market and beyond. 

Five awards in five years

The award was presented at the Global Carrier Awards ceremony on Wednesday evening, 30 October 2019, during Capacity Europe 2019, Europe’s largest annual meeting for the global carrier community. DE-CIX has now earned this important industry award for the fourth time in the past five years. The list of Capacity Awards won by DE-CIX includes three awards as Best Internet Exchange (2015, 2016, and 2017) and an award for the Best Internet Exchange Innovation (2018).

We would like to say thank you to capacity and especially to our customers without whom our interconnection ecosystem would not exist as it does today.
