Carrier News

This newsletter not only keeps you up-to-date with LCL’s activities, we also like to give you the latest news from our telecom operators.

GT-T
With the recent takeover of Inteliquent’s data business, previously known under the name Tinet, GT-T is destined to become a long-term dependable partner of LCL. GT-T already delivers services to the clients of LCL at its three data centres.

GT-T is able to provide outstanding reach anywhere in the world. Access to their Juniper network can be established at over 200 POPs in more than 85 countries. GT-T is an ideal partner for both public internet access and private networks used for mission-critical applications.

GT-T’s IP Transit and Layer 2 Ethernet/MPLS services are amongst the most robust and resilient anywhere in the world. In fact, according to several independent rankings (including Renesys), GT-T is one of the top-5 global IP backbone providers.

NL-ix
NL-ix has continued to increase the number of locations and services, which has resulted in new record highs in traffic volume.

NL-ix is the longest-serving partner of AMS-IX for remote-IX services. As of now, the company is also a partner for LINX in London. NL-ix specialises in the delivery of remote-IX services of partner Internet Exchanges. As of this month, NL-ix is also a LINX partner. This means the more than 350 networks connected with NL-ix can also use LINX for peering, without hiring a rack or installing equipment in London. Three of the top-5 Internet Exchanges can be accessed via an NL-ix port at any of the 60 POP’s: LINX, AMS-IX, and NL-ix, together with more than 1000 unique peers.

To boost the connectivity of the NL-ix network and the Eurouting partial transit service, new links have been established with several IX networks: DE-CIX and ECIX in Germany, LU-CIX in Luxembourg, France-IX in France, and LONAP in the United Kingdom.
The increase in the number of POPs and services has led to new, sustained, record highs in the traffic volume handled by NL-ix. In May of this year, peak traffic volume exceeded 300Gbit/s. This represented a doubling of traffic volume within only 16 months, and means traffic volume via NL-ix is the fasted-growing in Europe.
