ECIX has peering LANs in multiple metropolitan areas across Germany. Each peering LAN is designed around the (virtual) hub & spoke topology using Extreme Networks and Brocade switches. Between each peering LAN, and therefore between each metropolitan area, we deploy Juniper routers. This makes it possible for our customers to remotely peer in any of ECIX's other peering LANs and even the AMS-IX, LU-CIX and/or N-IX Internet Exchanges.
Customers are directly connected to ECIX switches, available at each location. One can connect with 1 (or multiple) 1 G, 10 G, or 100 G Ethernet ports using singlemode fibre. Fibre connections are supported using LX, LR or LR4 optics.
