LINX supports further digital growth for Scotland

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) has released a launch date for their newest point of presence (PoP) in Scotland, adding a second location to their regional Internet exchange platform, IXScotland, which was first established in 2013.

The new PoP, which is set to go live early November, is based within the DataVita datacentre facility, just over 10 miles east of Glasgow. Adding a second location to LINX’s regional peering infrastructure in Scotland will not only increase the resiliency for current IXScotland members but will also add to the digital attraction of the country as a whole.


Kurtis Lindqvist, CMO at The London Internet Exchange is excited about the future for Scotland:

‘We are pleased with the growth of IXScotland to date and are looking forward to once again, working with The Scottish Government to promote the benefits of regional peering further. Another datacentre location for LINX in Scotland means an increase in diversity and resilience for our members there and will encourage more or our members to choose Scotland as a peering location.’
