Through this agreement, clients’ access to AMS-IX Mumbai would be made easier, more efficient, and seamless.

But with the new setup, companies can join via any of Extreme IX’s 15 Points of Presence (PoPs). Through this development, clients can now quickly access more than 60 networks that are linked to AMS-IX Mumbai without having to be physically close.

The AMS-IX International Partnership Director, Onno Bos, highlighted the new service’s cost-effectiveness. “Many companies already have their networks in data centers enabled by Extreme IX, which means there’s no need for additional investment in physical infrastructure or new colocation facilities to connect to AMS-IX in Mumbai,” he stated. Bos added that buyers should find the new locations and cheap price to be highly alluring.
