New Peering Connection to World's Leading Internet Exchange Enhances Pacnet's Network Reach in Europe

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Pacnet announced today that it has expanded its network reach in Europe by connecting to the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), the largest Internet exchange in the world.

"As the gateway between Asia Pacific and the rest of the world, we are seeing a growing amount of Europe-Asia traffic traversing over our networks," said Jim Fagan, President of Managed Services, Pacnet. "Establishing this peering relationship with AMS-IX enables us to interconnect directly with more European IP networks and accelerate the Internet performance between Europe and Asia, improving the end-user experience in both regions."

The connection to AMS-IX enables Pacnet to peer with over 500 networks in the AMS-IX community, which includes Internet Service Providers (ISPs), cloud and hosting companies, mobile and content providers, telecommunications carriers, Voice over IP (VoIP) providers, gaming and social media networks.

"Pacnet's connection to AMS-IX is a win-win for the digital communities in both Europe and Asia Pacific," said Job Witteman, CEO of AMS-IX. "Telecommunications carriers, service providers, as well as business and consumer customers in both regions will now benefit from the improved network performance and redundancy."

The connection to AMS-IX is Pacnet's second peering point in Europe. In 2011, Pacnet established its peering presence at LINX (London Internet Exchange) in London. Pacnet operates a leading IP network with a backbone capacity of over 400 Gbps and extensive peering arrangements with some of the world's largest Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Its suite of IP solutions include Pacnet IP Transit, which enables ISPs, Internet Content Providers (ICPs), Content Delivery Network (CDN) operators and mobile operators with high-availability and low-latency IP transit services to reach their target audience.
