Establish virtual private connections. The connection can be provisioned easily, between any two points within a metro region and also between metro regions. Use it for MPLS connections, enterprise network traffic, or the selling of transit or paid peering. Save on Capex and Opex as no additional equipment is needed, and easily extend the reach of your own network by using the DE-CIX infrastructure.


Flexible bandwidths from 100 Mbps up to 100 GE, easy upgrades.

No additional cross connect costs.

E-Line: a virtual point-to-point private line

VirtualPNI is an Ethernet point-to-point service allowing you to install one or multiple VLANs on your access and to get connected to other networks, regardless of at which enabled site they are connected to our platform. It’s like a virtual private line; within a metro region or even between metro regions.

The service is available at all DE-CIX exchanges except St. Petersburg.

E-Line within a metro region

Connect to your desired counterpart in another data center or get connected to other DE-CIX customers that can provide transit for you. Or sell your services to other customers who are connected at one of the premium DE-CIX-enabled sites.

E-Line between metro regions

VirtualPNI Remote is available at our interconnected exchanges: with your access at one of these locations, you can connect via a VLAN to any other premium DE-CIX-enabled site at the other exchanges. In addition, VirtualPNI Remote to the interconnected IXs is available from the Ruhr region and between Frankfurt and the IXs in Berlin and Moscow, and also between Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, and Singapore.
