Pacnet increases EU connections

Pacnet has expanded its network reach in Europe by connecting to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX).
This move enables Pacnet to peer with over 500 networks in the AMS-IX community, which ISPs, cloud and hosting companies, mobile and content providers, telecommunications carriers, voice over IP providers, gaming and social media networks.
 
The connection to AMS-IX is Pacnet's second peering point in Europe after linking with the London Internet Exchange in 2011.
 
"Establishing this peering relationship with AMS-IX enables us to interconnect directly with more European IP networks and accelerate the internet performance between Europe and Asia, improving the end-user experience in both regions," said Jim Fagan, president of managed services at Pacnet.
 
Pacnet operates an IP network with a backbone capacity of over 400-Gbps.
