LINX – London Internet Exchange
Volta Data Centres is a LINX Virtual PoP. This means that we can provide connections to a LINX Peering LAN. We are enabling LINX members to connect directly to a core LINX PoP at the lowest cost and with the minimum of fuss.
The London Internet Exchange (LINX) is a mutually owned membership association for operators of Internet Protocol networks. They provide a neutral interconnection facility and peering platform, known as an Internet Exchange Point (IXP), and represent the interests of their members on matters of public policy.
Their members consist of access networks, ISPs such as BT and content providers like Google, who exchange Internet traffic between each other over their secure peering LANs. Through LINX they are able to reach 80% of the total global Internet making it one of the single biggest connection points in the world with traffic peaks of over 3.5 Tb/sec on their public peering platform alone.
The London Internet Exchange (LINX) is one of the largest Internet exchanges in the world, connecting over 780 member ASNs from over 70 countries around the globe. LINX continues to expand their London presence with over 11 PoPs across the capital along with regional exchanges in Wales, Manchester and Scotland. LINX also operates an Internet exchange in the Ashburn metro area in the US just outside Washington DC.
