Asteroid and Interxion improve interconnection in Amsterdam

Asteroid, the interconnection platform innovator, and Amsterdam Science Park-based Interxion, a leading provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data centre services in Europe, have collaborated to enable efficient, cost-effective interconnection to networks in Amsterdam.

Asteroid operates the Asteroid IXP at Amsterdam Science Park, which is easily accessible by all Interxion customers in Amsterdam. The Asteroid IXP offers a modern, cost-effective way to peer with some of the largest networks in the world.

The collaboration will not only enable effective, and smooth connection of all Interxion Amsterdam customers to the Asteroid IXP, but is also kicked off with a special offer. The Asteroid sponsored offer allows anyone present at Interxion Science Park to obtain a free cross connect from Interxion Science Park (AMS9) to Asteroid IXP for a period of 12 months.

Interxion also offers connections from the Interxion Schiphol Campus , with a 10G protected wave to the Asteroid IXP, priced at €100 per month (with a setup fee of € 500).

“We are very excited to work with Interxion to provide better interconnection to our customers in Amsterdam,” says Nurani Nimpuno, Chief Commercial Officer, Asteroid. “Asteroid works with trusted parties in local markets to deliver the best possible local interconnection solution. Our collaboration with Interxion is a good example of this, which benefits all networks in Amsterdam.”

The Asteroid IXP model is a return to the original spirit of simple, efficient interconnection but built on state-of-the-art technology, lightweight and scalable architecture, and advanced toolsets. With just one port Asteroid customers will be able to reach an impressive amount of networks including the world's top content networks and service providers.
