The need for speed and scalability to drive meaningful sales requires building highly available, low-latency systems as the
most critical form of interconnection strategies. It is in DE-CIX’s DNA – as the operator of the largest neutral interconnection
ecosystem on the planet – to bring traffic as close to the user as possible to guarantee low latencies and high bandwidths for
a better Internet experience.
DE-CIX India is expanding its Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) network capacity at the Mumbai, Delhi,
Chennai, and Kolkata markets.
DE-CIX has therefore replaced existing devices to increase capacity up to 320GE and has upgraded software versions for better
performance and reliability. Additionally, the deployment of second fiber rings will improve the network efficiency and
increase the network availability massively. This is another important milestone for DE-CIX India to provide the most robust
network on the sub-continent.
DWDM technology provides the ultimate scalability and reach for fiber networks. It is compatible with upcoming advances in
optical networks and helps to create a highly reliable, transparent, and very scalable network that makes interconnection
