Your entry point into Europe: Reach international content and European networks
Where going further north makes no sense
Lisbon is the place where the sea cables from Western Africa and South America first hit the European continent. It is the perfect place to enter Europe and exchange traffic instead of going further north. With access at DE-CIX Lisbon, networks can peer with hundreds of networks that are connected to the DE-CIX Internet Exchanges in Frankfurt, Madrid, New York, and several other locations (GlobePEER Remote service). This means you get ten exchanges with one access and, from the start, more than 1,000 networks are available for peering.
Save costs, reduce latency, and improve your network quality
Connecting in Lisbon instead of London saves transport and colocation costs and massively reduces latency. Bypassing London spares you at least 30 milliseconds round-trip time (RTT). European networks and international content are already present, more will come, and you can peer with 170+ networks in Madrid from day one.
The center of gravity goes south
Starting with DE-CIX Madrid, DE-CIX became active in developing the digital ecosystem on the Iberian Peninsula. The Iberian Peninsula is the new center of gravity where networks meet instead of going all the way further north to reach European networks and international content providers. DE-CIX Madrid is the fastest-growing IX worldwide, and with Lisbon as a complementary sea cable hub just milliseconds away, the digital ecosystem on the Iberian Peninsula will further grow and flourish.
Peer at additional DE-CIX locations just via an additional VLAN - reach 1000+ networks
With access to DE-CIX Lisbon, you can not only peer with the connected networks in Lisbon. With the GlobePEER Remote service, you can peer remotely with the networks connected at multiple other DE-CIX locations, e.g. with all connected networks in Madrid or Marseille. More than 1000 networks with just one connection. Have a look at the available exchanges and networks.
