The London Internet Exchange celebrates its 20th anniversary

- 20 years ago, five Internet Service Providers joined their networks together through a donated piece of equipment located in Telehouse North and the rest, as they say, is history. Today the London Internet Exchange (LINX) is one of the world’s biggest Internet Exchange Points (IXP’s), with over 500 members, and 1241 connected member ports. At peak times, LINX handles over 4Tbps of traffic to over 60 member countries. 

It’s continual growth has reflected the demand for the internet and this is set to grow as take up deepens, thanks to bandwidth speeds increasing, content growing and more devices being utilised. LINX now has nearly 8Tbps of connected capacity on it's network and recent upgrades have taken total available capacity to over 15Tbps to reflect expect capacity demand to come.
 
Telehouse is proud to be supporting LINX to celebrate their 20th birthday and LINX will be holding celebratory activities and events throughout the year. For more information please go to the LINX website: https://www.linx.net/index.html.

- Recent upgrades in three of Telehouse’s London data centres means that additional space is now available. In total 1,200m2 of additional space has been made available in Telehouse East, Telehouse West and Telehouse Metro (City). The release of this space is part of an on-going programme to upgrade power and cooling, and released to market as it becomes available in our London Data Centres.

Launch of a new Telehouse.net website


- Earlier this month, the global Telehouse Website was re-launched, aimed at delivering additional support and access to key information. 

Using a responsive structure (it alternates depending on the device you are using, from iPhone’s to PC’s), it is built in line with the latest web trends and provides a clean fresh look for the Telehouse brand. The site is live for UK customers at the moment, and will be rolled out internationally to France and Germany shortly.
 
We look forward to updating you again soon with more developments from Telehouse. As always, we welcome feedback or any questions that you may have on the products or services you receive.
