Tuesday 27 April 2021 | 09:34 CET | News
Internet exchange operator De-Cix said it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a strategic partnership with the recently-completed EllaLink trans-Atlantic cable platform. The aim is to promote and enhance a new low latency path across the southern Atlantic, directly connecting Latin America and Southern Europe. The deal will see Lisbon functioning as the entry point to Southern Europe's largest neutral interconnection ecosystem, consisting of the five De-Cix interconnected IXs in Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Marseille and Palermo.
