DE-CIX, the world’s leading operator of carrier and data center neutral Internet Exchanges (IX) and EllaLink, a state-of-the-art optical platform offering secure, high capacity connectivity on a unique low latency transatlantic route, recently announced they formed a new partnership to enable access to the largest emerging interconnection hubs in Lisbon, Portugal; Madrid and Barcelona in Spain; Marseille, France; and Palermo, Italy. Customers and partners as well as the wider global Internet community can now enjoy the benefits of a new low latency route across the southern Atlantic linking Brazil and South Europe.
