The new DE-CIX FlexPOP service offers carriers the opportunity to use DE-CIX's infrastructure: At every DE-CIX PoP, carriers can create virtual PoPs, allowing them to increase their on-net coverage without the need to invest in their own infrastructure.
Adding PoPs without expensive CAPEX & OPEX investment
Adding new PoPs usually takes a long time and is expensive. With DE-CIX FlexPOP, carriers can connect to their customer from/at any DE-CIX PoP, without needing to build up their own PoPs.
By using the DE-CIX infrastructure, carriers
- have full metro coverage and increase their on-net presence in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich and Dusseldorf, as well as in Madrid and Lisbon; additional locations will follow
- decrease provisioning time
- minimize unused prepaid transport inventory
- optimize CAPEX/OPEX
The service is available in two independent infrastructure zones: In the German market, where carriers can get instant access to 50+ PoPs, and on the Iberian Peninsula, between DE-CIX Madrid and DE-CIX Lisbon. More information about the new service can be found here.
