The Hanover based telecommunication and internet service provider hosts BCIX in Berlin.
Due to this sponsoring partnership, LambdaNet´s customers are provided with a direct physical connectivity to the “Berlin Internet Exchange and Peering Point“. Internet exchange or peering points are places where IP-net providers exchange their IP-traffic to ensure their clients´ access to third party IP-nets.
In addition to its exchange points in three more co-locations in Berlin, BCIX is now available for LambdaNet´s clients with a single wiring. The advantage for LambdaNet´s and BCIX´s customers lies in saving expensive leased lines, through which the needed connection otherwise would have been established. The peering policy or traffic relation agreement is negotiated directly between BCIX and the co-location customer in order to guarantee a simple and – more important – immediate interconnection.
Philipp Groß, COO at LambdaNet Communications Deutschland AG, summarizes the objectives of the sponsoring partnership as follows: “Our focus is on the constant enhancement of our services as well as the permanent reduction of expenses for our customers. The cooperation with BCIX helps us to take a big step towards reaching this objective. Our clients can be connected to the “Berlin Internet Exchange and Peering Point“ quickly and at low costs.“
