The London Internet Exchange (LINX) and the Japan Internet Exchange (JPIX) recently entered into a new partnership agreement, a collaboration which stems from the knowledge that an increasing number of Asian networks are looking to peer in Europe, and in London in particular.

Community Network Center (CNCI) is the first member to join LINX in London from JPIX’s Tokyo PoP. CNCI, a large customer for JPIX, is the second-largest cable MSO in Japan, providing internet connectivity to businesses and consumers across central Japan. Reaching Europe from Asia was high on CNCI’s agenda in order to reduce latency and improve speed to European-based gaming content and streaming.

Takanori Furushio, VP-Strategy for JPIX says;
“We are pleased to be able to connect one of our largest customers, CNCI, with our new partners LINX in London. They wanted to be the first network to join LINX through this new partnership and lead the way for other networks to follow.”

CNCI’s port is now live and peering traffic and LINX are looking forward to welcoming more networks from the APAC region to peer in London.

Kurtis Lindqvist, CMO for LINX says;
“With transport costs to the UK falling and London maintaining its position as a global hub for interconnection, there’s simply no better time to join LINX. We are pleased to be working alongside our partners in Japan and together ‘working for the good of the Internet.”
