2011-11-04NIX.CZ opened a fifth PoP in Prague
Prague (November, 3 2011) – NIX.CZ, an association of significant providers of internet and telecommunication services announced today the opening of a new PoP in Prague, already the fifth one in a row. This point is located in TTC Teleport telehouse in Prague 10. Permanent operation was commenced on 31.10.2011 here, offering the possibility of connection by ports with the capacity of 1 and 10 GB.
At the beginning of October, exactly 15 years passed since the establishment of NIX.CZ Association. The official celebrations of this significant anniversary were slightly postponed so that the association can focus on putting into operation this new PoP and thus to donate to its birthday this symbolical present to its members and customers.
The present peering node NIX.CZ was extended by a new PoP at the end of January 2003 as the forth PoP was established in Prague Congress Centre data center. The purpose of the current extension of the NIX.CZ node by another locality was to ensure higher independence, higher stability and availability of services. The adding of a new point was enabled by circular topology upgrade last year to the current so called NIX.CZ internal network “dual star“ topology.
The new fifth PoP has arisen under the contribution of TTC TELEKOMUNIKACE s.r.o. in the TTC Teleport telehouse building (a data center independent of telecommunication operators), offering another alternative of connection to NIX.CZ both to new upcoming members and customers and also to all current ones.
