IX Reach, a layer 2 carrier with its own global network, has built on its solid reputation of being a leading Internet Exchange (IX) connection provider after its recent push with its neighbours across the Channel, France-IX.

For a limited time, IX Reach offered a free 100Mb connection into France-IX, the popular Parisian Exchange; more than 15 companies seized the opportunity to open up their network into the French hub and have become the latest France-IX members.

Stephen Wilcox, Founder and CTO of IX Reach commented, “To bring more than 15 companies to an Internet Exchange in a period of less than two weeks is almost unheard of. We feel privileged to work with France-IX and be able to offer this ‘no obligation’ deal and boost France-IX’s name and popularity within the UK marketplace.”

Solène Souquet, marketing manager of France-IX explained, “We’re grateful to be working closely with IX Reach promoting the services of France-IX. Working with a company well known for providing IX connections adds a certain gravitas, and opens up France-IX to companies that otherwise may not have joined.

France-IX has over 200 members and peak traffic of over 160Gbps making it one of the largest IXPs in France. Using IX Reach to provide direct connections to France-IX enables customers broader access through its comprehensive global MPLS Ethernet network.

IX Reach provides capacities ranging from 100Mbps to multiple 10Gbps from any on-net location to France-IX, opening up the country to the rest of Europe and North America.
