BCIX PNI Wavelength

BCIX also offers 1Gbps and 10Gbps PNI (Privat Network Interconnect) connections between all BCIX enabled sites based on the existing optical DWDM network. In order to provide you with the best possible security, we only charge 50% of the normal price for redundant connections.

DE-CIX Frankfurt Connect

As of the beginning of January 2018, BCIX has entered a cooperation with DE-CIX, with the aim of interconnecting existing peers with the other exchange. A direct connection between the local IXP LANs is not planned, however DE-CIX services can now be made available at BCIX via VLAN. The following services are available:

  • DE-CIX Frankfurt GlobePeer
  • MetroVLAN
  • DirectCloud
  • Access port in Frankfurt for connecting to BCIX services (see above)

Several bandwidth options between 100 Mbit/s and 10 Gbit/s are available for transporting data between Berlin and Frankfurt.

Due to the multitude of options we ask you to contact sales@bcix.de with your detailed request so we can send you a quote.

Examples:

  1. An existing BCIX peer wants to peer with 1Gbit/s at DE-CIX Frankfurt: 500€ monthly + 400€ setup
  2. An existing BCIX peer needs a DirectCloud connection with 100Mbit/s: 95€ monthly + 400€ setup
  3. A peer in Frankfurt currently not connected to DE-CIX wants to peer at BCIX with 1Gbit/s: 550€ monthly + 1000€ setup
