The DE-CIX Apollon platform was created to manage the continuous and enormous increase in customers and data traffic at DE-CIX's interconnection platforms.
To effectively keep on top of this substantial traffic growth, DE-CIX created the world’s largest and most advanced Ethernet-based platform.
100GE and 400GE level
DE-CIX Apollon is built on the best possible platform components, delivering high-availability peering with full 100G and 400G Ethernet capabilities. DE-CIX Apollon utilizes state-of-the-art DWDM equipment and is built on a switching layer supported by Nokia (former Alcatel-Lucent) service routers, which support up to 1440x100 Gigabit Ethernet ports or up to 288x400 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The setup of the platform is completely redundant and there is 24/7/365 fault monitoring in place.
The DE-CIX Apollon platform is in service at all DE-CIX Internet Exchanges, except Berlin, Moscow, St. Petersburg, and the Internet Exchanges in India.
