HNS brings IX Cardiff Internet Exchange to NGD data centre

John Lissenden

Data centre, networks and cloud services provider Hub Network Services (HNS) announced today it is one of the first members to connect to the IX Cardiff Internet Exchange following its partnering with LINX Telecom under the LINX Connexions scheme.

Thousands of service providers already connected to the NGD mega data centre near Cardiff where HNS has an established colocation presence will now be offered high speed virtual ports of up to 10Gbps, with HNS bundling all exchange, peering and connectivity fees into a competitive single monthly fee.

The IX Cardiff Internet Exchange is becoming increasingly important for both service and content providers in Wales. By offering direct routes between Welsh customers and content it eliminates the need to send network traffic via London. Regional Internet exchanges such as IX Cardiff allow ISPs to connect to each other much closer to end users removing the need to send data to a central location. This provides benefits to customers in terms of speed, reliability and cost of data transmission.

Commenting on this initiative, John Lissenden, HNS’ Client Services Director said: “This is a natural extension to the services HNS offers at NGD, combining the benefits of both IX Cardiff and Europe’s largest data centre from within South Wales.”

“HNS also offers expertise to service providers wishing to experience the benefits of peering for the first time who may need assistance in obtaining their own IP address space and configuring and managing routers,” added John Lissenden.
