The TOP-IX Consortium, second Italian Internet Exchange, already present in Milan with its own infrastructure, has activated a new Point of Presence in the DATA4 data center in Cornaredo (MI).

The decision is even the result of requests from the Turin consortium members, who see the new PoP as an opportunity to increase the possibilities of interconnection with the OTTs present in the Milan area and to improve the reliability of the same interconnections. «The presence of TOP-IX in the DATA4 Campus offers new business opportunities for the members of the Consortium – says Andrea Casalegno, Tech Director at TOP-IX –. This opens up interesting opportunities for new services available through our Marketplace».

The partnership with DATA 4 was signed with a view to strengthening cooperation on the national territory between Internet traffic interchange points and neutral data centers, to support telecommunications operators. «We are particularly proud to host the new TOP-IX Point of Presence on our Campus – says Davide Suppia, Country Manager at Data4 ITALIA –. This partnership marks a further step forward in consolidating our strategic positioning as a ‘neutral carrier’ data center with a central role at the level of a connectivity node in Northern Italy, able to attract the interest of international companies and cloud providers
