New CATNIX service equipment

The new CATNIX service equipment is up and running

The Catalonia Neutral Internet Exchange Point (CATNIX) has since the beginning of June a new service equipment, which multiplies its switching capacity by six, and consolidates routing and switching functionalities in a single equipment.

The new Arista 7020SR has 1.04 Tbps and replaces the previous Cisco Catalyst WS-C3650-48TQ router of 176 Gbps and the Cisco ASR1001-X switch of 20 Gbps.

The new equipment also multiplies by ten the capacity of the service connection thanks to the 2 ports of 100 Gbps each that connect with the peering equipment. With the new equipment, CATNIX improves its capacity for growth and evolution of services, as well as the latency access to the available services in the IXP.
