Mumbai-IX powered by DE-CIX makes its presence at Netmagic DC5

Mumbai-IX, powered by DE-CIX, expands its footprint in Mumbai to Netmagic DC5 in the Chandivali neighbourhood. Mumbai-IX, the leading Internet Exchange (IX) in the Indian market, will make services available at the facility, starting February 2018.


This is the second point-of-presence of Mumbai-IX in the metro market. The carrier and data center- neutral IX serves around 90 providers and is the only IX in India which carries OIX-1 certification from the Open-IX association. Open-IX is a US-based non-profit association that has developed strong standards for Internet Exchanges.


Mumbai-IX connects all kinds of Internet providers, including Broadband Providers, Content Delivery Networks, and Cloud Companies. This direct interconnection creates a better Internet experience for the end-user, while providers get control over their connectivity and more cost-efficient production of Internet connectivity. Mumbai-IX is already a vital part of the Indian Internet infrastructure. An expansion to additional markets will be announced shortly.


Speaking on the same, Ivo Ivanov, Board Member of Mumbai-IX operating company DE-CIX Interwire India, says, “Mumbai-IX is proud to establish its presence in Netmagic's flagship data center. This will be one of our key deployments in this market and allows both our big global customers and regional networks to establish settlement-free interconnection with each other. The NTT group is a trusted partner for DE- CIX and we are happy that, in addition to the partnership we have with the NTT data center ‘eShelter’ in Frankfurt (Germany), we now are able to expand this to Mumbai.”


Also Sharad Sanghi, MD & CEO, Netmagic, said, “We are extremely delighted to host Mumbai-IX at our data center (DC 5) in Mumbai. This enables us to boost up the Indian digital infrastructure market with our carrier-neutral state-of-the-art data centers and distributed approach.”


This core node of Mumbai-IX will provide premium IXP services, backed by industry-leading Service Level Agreements. Soon the IXP will launch in additional key markets in India.
