The connection speed between the Campus Nord and Equinix nodes of the Catalonia Internet Exchange Point (CATNIX) has been increased to 40 Gbps (4×10 Gbps) in mid-July. Until now, the connection between the two PoP was made at 30 Gbps (3×10 Gbps).
Paolo Lucente, Network Tools Developer at NTT Communications, has made a speech on the BMP protocol, whose initials state for BGP Monitoring Platform, before the 44th CATNIX Technical Commission, held online this 2nd of July.
The telecom and content operator Telefónica has upgraded its connection speed to the CATNIX this July from 3 Gbps to 5 Gbps. Member of CATNIX since 2001, Telefónica connects to this IXP through the Campus Nord Point of Presence (PoP).
After the installation of the new CATNIX service equipment, the peering platform of this IXP has been updated on June 12 at the three different Points of Presence (PoP) that it has in Barcelona and the metropolitan area (Campus Nord, Equinix and bitNAP).
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 speed test from the Catalonia Neutral Internet Exchange Point (CATNIX) is already available free of charge to measure the internet speed of all users across the country in an easy way. It provides upload and download speeds in megabits per second (Mbps) and latency in milliseconds (ms), as well as information on the provider and a graph showing the evolution of the test.
