IXcellerate, operator of a carrier-neutral data center in Moscow, Russia, has completed the upgrade of its peering platform, Eurasia Peering. The peering platform is based within IXcellerate’s Moscow-based colocation data center and offers traffic exchange services in Russia.

To increase the quality of the service and amplify the international status of the peering platform, IXcellerate’s peering experts have significantly revamped its infrastructure and broadened connectivity options. All members now have access to ports with 1, 10, 25, 40 and 100 Gb capacity.

Currently, the service provides access to 18 telecom network operators, including Cloudflare, Mastertel, Telecom Exchange, Netrack, Filanco, Avelacom. Eurasia Peering’s presence within the data center would allow connectivity with just one cross-connect from other clients and DC zones, while having a non-blocking switching capacity would ensure increased technical efficiency, keeping the SLA at 99.999%.

Russian Legislation

The platform is fully compliant with Russian legislation and is registered as ‘Eurasia Peering LLC’. With all the necessary licenses to provide telematics and data-transferring services, Eurasia Peering is registered in Russian registries, as well as in the global Internet-register RIPE and international database PeeringDB.

“The launch of the modernized Eurasia Peering platform within our data center comes at a very opportune time,” said Guy Willner, CEO of IXcellerate. “With the current rapprochement with Asian countries, Russia and especially Moscow is seeing a huge influx of Chinese companies and investors. Now that the new “One Belt One Road” strategy is rapidly developing, Eurasia Peering will help existing and new clients get better connected and get access to a vast array of partners here at IXcellerate, enabling them to access Europe’s largest Internet user base of over 100 million users.”
