DE-CIX offers its customers an API to easily order, configure, and cancel interconnection services. The DE-CIX API is live, ready for service, and the first customers, Epsilon and Interxion, are already using it.
The API supports fully end-to-end automated processes and is based on IX-API, and industry standard developed for provisioning interconnection at Internet Exchanges.
The industry standard was developed by AMS-IX, LINX, and DE-CIX, and introduced to the peering community at the European Peering Forum in Tallinn in September.
