DE-CIX Hamburg

DE-CIX Hamburg is an Internet exchange that offers direct and settlement-free IP interconnection (peering) to other IP networks which operate a Point-of-Presence in the city of Hamburg. DE-CIX Hamburg was founded by Hamburg based ISP n@work in 2002. Since August 2007 DE-CIX Hamburg is owned and operated by DE-CIX Management GmbH based in Frankfurt.

DE-CIX already operates the world’s leading Internet exchange in Frankfurt plus regional IXs in Hamburg and Munich as well as UAE-IX in Dubai and DE-CIX New York. The company serves over 600 Internet providers from 60+ countries. This includes all leading players in the industry including Google, Yahoo, Sprint, AT&T, Level3 and many others.

Hamburg is the second-largest city in Germany and its port is the second-largest port in Europe. The city contains an approximate 1.8 million Hamburgers, the synonym for the city's inhabitants.

The media and Internet business is a vital part of Hamburgs economy. About half of Germany's national newspapers and magazines are produced in Hamburg, and there are also a number of music companies and Internet businesses in the city.

DE-CIX is proud to be part of the process to further improve the telecommunication infrastructure not only for Hamburg but for the whole region and the neighboring countries by operating the DE-CIX Hamburg state of the art Internet exchange right in the heart of the city. To provide information about the opportunities at an Internet exchange, DE-CIX regularly visits regional events like the Competence Meeting on Engineering (click here for a report on the last meeting, in German).
