DE-CIX Frankfurt Connect

As of the beginning of January 2018, BCIX and DE-CIX have entered into a cooperation, aiming to interconnect 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 a VLAN. The following services are available:

  • GlobePEER
  • VirtualPNI
  • DirectCLOUD
  • Access port in Frankfurt for connecting to BCIX services (see above)

Several bandwidth options between 100 Mbps and 10 Gbps 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 provide you with a quote.


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