MIX offers Carrier specific services at the MIX Datacentre where the MIX Core switches are located. Carriers are able to provide telecommunications services to other entities through their own transmission equipment or optical terminations at this MIX managed Datacentre.

Within a specific, protected part of the colocation facility with guaranteed functionality, MIX carriers are ideally positioned to:

  • Offer Interconnection services to operators connected on the MIX peering LAN

  • Interconnect their equipment (active or passive) to other MIX connected networks located in the datacenter

All of this easily, quickly and at a fair cost.
