Just six weeks after the launch of its PASS Service, France-IX, the premier Internet Peering Service Provider in France, has experienced a high level of interest from its member community with 75 percent of potential demand signed up already.

“We are always looking for the best possible interconnections with the major Internet players and we have to go, always, further to serve our customers better – literally,” says Ferdinand Chevrant-Breton, Director and co-founder of moji. “We were seduced by the advantages of the PASS service: its affordable price, its record implementation time and the simple access to new unique peers, as well as the resilient access to existing critical peers. With a port speed of 100G, we are entering a new peering dimension.”

The new Peering as a Supplementary Service – PASS – is a fully secured transport service and peering privileges solution that enables IXP members, directly connected at one France-IX location – Paris or Marseille – to benefit from simple, fast and affordable access to community members that peer at the other. This means that, without needing a physical port in the other city, a direct peering member at either Marseille or Paris gains access and peering privileges with more than fifteen unique networks in Marseille or over 350 unique networks in Paris. The highly resilient interconnection service enables France-IX to achieve an RTD (round-trip delay) lower than twelve milliseconds making Marseille even closer for France-IX Paris members who wish to expand there and facilitate content access across Africa, the Middle-East and Asia.

“This rapid uptake of our PASS Service is testament to our ability to provide innovative solutions that make France-IX the best choice for peering in Europe,” said Simon Muyal, Chief Technical Officer at France-IX. “Our mission at France-IX is to provide Internet networks with simple, reliable, trusted, fair and competitive interconnection services in France, in full neutrality and financial independence, and to continue to develop a multi-service and international interconnection platform to increase the agility and the affordability of communications services.”
