VirtualPNI: Unrivaled connectivity options

DE-CIX’s VirtualPNI service allows customers to easily establish virtual private connections. The connection can be provisioned easily, between any two points within a metro region and also between metro regions. It can be used for MPLS connections, enterprise network traffic, or the selling of transit or paid peering. You can save on Capex and Opex as no additional equipment is needed, and you can easily extend the reach of your own network by using the DE-CIX infrastructure.

The service is available at all DE-CIX exchanges except Dubai, Moscow, and the IXs in India. 

E-Line: a virtual point-to-point private line

This Ethernet point-to-point service allows you to install one or multiple VLANs on your access and to get connected to other customers, regardless of which enabled site they have connected to the platform in. It’s like a virtual private line; within a metro region or even between metro regions.

Your benefits

  • Flexible bandwidths from 100 Mbps up to 100 GE, depending on location
  • Multiple VLANs to single destination ports or to multiple destination ports using different q-tags
  • Different VLAN IDs on both sides
  • Adjustable MTU size (9000 bytes maximum; default MTU size is 1534 bytes)
  • Implementation within two working days
  • 24/7/365 support
  • Easy bandwidth upgrades 
  • No additional cross connect costs

E-Line within a metro region

Connect to your desired counterpart in another data center or get connected to other DE-CIX customers that can provide transit for you. Or sell your services to other customers who are connected at one of the DE-CIX-enabled sites.

E-Line between metro regions

At our exchanges in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, New York, Marseille, and Istanbul, VirtualPNI Remote is available: with your access at one of these locations, you can connect via a VLAN to any other DE-CIX-enabled site at the other exchanges. In addition, VirtualPNI Remote is available between Frankfurt and Berlin, and Madrid and Lisbon.

E-LAN – a multipoint-to-multipoint connection

In New York and Dallas, we also offer an Ethernet multipoint-to-multipoint service. The service has all the advantages of E-Line, plus it allows you to bring multiple ports into one broadcast domain. It’s like a traditional VLAN that connects to multiple ports.
