Equinix Internet Exchange - Paris Paris

Equinix Internet Exchange™ Paris

Established in April 2008, the Paris Equinix Internet Exchange is the leading Internet Exchange in France, providing peering services to more than 135 customers. The Equinix Internet Exchange, a cost-effective and highly available switching platform for network interconnection, reduces operating costs and enables efficient IP traffic interchange by aggregating thousands of peering sessions onto a single hardware platform at an Equinix IBX® data centre.

Paris is a hub for French Internet traffic, a central location for the exchange of Internet traffic between the U.S. and Europe, and the termination point for many undersea cable systems in the Mediterranean Sea, bringing providers to Europe from Africa, the Middle East, India, and Asia-Pacific.

Why Equinix?

Equinix offers network service providers, content and digital media properties, enterprises, financial firms and cloud platforms the ability to connect with more than 900 networks worldwide. The Equinix Internet Exchange provides an efficient and cost-effective means to leverage these ecosystems for traffic exchange and transit. The convenient and flexible central switching fabric improves end-to-end network performance, reduces latency and packet loss, and lowers overall IP transit costs.

Through the Equinix Internet Exchange service, customers can directly connect to each other for traffic exchange via a convenient and flexible central switching fabric managed by Equinix. This streamlined connectivity improves end-to-end network performance, reduces latency and packet loss, and lowers overall IP transit costs.
