DE-CIX 12 in Frankfurt: 4 Terabit connected capacity was moved in one night

In April, the DE-CIX 12 project team moved 4 Terabit of connected capacity from the old site DE-CIX 7 to the new site DE-CIX 12 in Frankfurt in one night. Eighteen customers, about 40x 100GE ports, and several 10GE ports were migrated. With this, about 1.2 Terabit of traffic shifted from DE-CIX 7 to DE-CIX 12.

Several linecards were decommissioned at the old site and activated again at the new site. In addition, 8oo Gigabit capacity was moved from old DWDM routes to new ones at DE-CIX 12.

During the next weeks, the migration will go forward, moving the next customers to the new DE-CIX 12 site and thereby allowing the old DE-CIX 7 cage to be swept clean. A big thank you to the DE-CIX 12 project team!
