Tuesday 17 September 2019 | 14:02 CET | News
Internet exchange operators AMS-IX (Amsterdam), DE-CIX (Frankfurt) and Linx (London) announced at the European Peering Forum in Tallinn, Estonia that they joined forces to create a common application programming interface (API) to provision and configure interconnection services. This so-called IX-API is expected to improve productivity for their members, customers and partners alike. It allows users to self-manage their existing and new interconnection services such as peering more effectively, from ordering new ports to monitoring provisioning processes.
