Latency Is The Latest Currency
The current trend of business applications rely heavily on low latency connectivity to deliver the optimum user experience and business outcomes. Peering in the IX will ensure your business applications are connected via the shortest path possible to your end users, hence unlocking the edge capabilities that your applications demand.
This EBB IX-Connect can be a stand-alone product or can be delivered as an integral add-on to our EBB Dedicated Internet Access (EBB DIA). EBB DIA is a complete solution that offers top-notch dedicated and secure internet access and has always been EBB’s main bread and butter as we design it for businesses that need greater internet capacity and an ‘always-on’ connection.
With IX-Connect as an add-on service, not only EBB customers are able to enjoy fast and secure symmetric connection but they can also peer with all participating networks in the IX platform. Peering allows networks to exchange traffic at lowest latency possible.
How does EBB IX-Connect work?
IX-connect is a layer 2 connectivity service that connects the customer network to the DE-CIX IX for peering purposes. Peering allows the customer network to have a direct BGP connectivity to the networks connected to the IX and exchange traffic with these networks in a settlement-free method. By settlement-free, it is referring to a mechanism that both parties exchanging the traffic do not need to pay each other for the traffic they send to each other.
