Interxion goes live with IX-API

AMS-IX NEWS

AMS-IX

December 21, 2021

AMS-IX partner Interxion has added the IX peering service based on IX-API in their reseller portal. Interxion will now benefit from a fully automated service that will enable them to configure, change, order and cancel peering connections of their customers.

IX-API is an open community API, designed and developed by the three leading global Internet Exchanges (IXs): AMS-IX, DE-CIX, and LINX. The API provides an interface for provisioning of the key services at all three Exchanges. Interxion plays a key role in the project, as they are the first partner to implement and use the new API.

Ruben van de Brink, CTO of AMS-IX:

“IX-API is an important project for AMS-IX as it is an important steppingstone to enable our customers and partners to manage their networks with automated zero-touch provisioning. Interxion plays a vital role in this project as their feedback and experiences are key in making the API work. Having them successfully implement the new API is a big milestone.”

Eduardo Masini, Product Innovation Manager at Interxion, A Digital Realty Company:

“Having a standard API is key to facilitate to businesses in their digital transformation journeys with huge benefits. Now, with the integration of the IX-API into Interxion’s IX Peering platform, AMS-IX can be reached from all our campuses, either locally or remotely. It allows the deployment of services in just minutes, through an on-demand and fully automated ordering process.”

IX-API is available for resellers only at the moment. In November there was a feedback session in which a few of the largest Internet companies of the world participated and where new API utilisations and features were discussed. New updates on the API are expected beginning next year.
