MidWest Internet Exchange (MidWest-IX), a progressive Internet Exchange (IX), announces several upgrades to our Indianapolis fabric. These upgrades include additional 10 Gigabit ports, as well as 40 gigabit capability. MidWest-IX has installed additional switching upgrades in both 733 Henry and 401 North Shadeland locations.
The addition of more ports, especially 40 GIG, allows us to meet the ever-growing demand for high-capacity, low latency peering. We are seeing more and more customers looking to move to 10 GIG in the next 18 months. This move to 10 gig will accelerate the need for the larger capacity 40 gig ports. As content moves closer and closer the need for larger capacity ports will become more and more important.
