ISP Review- Proximity Data Centres Deploy Birmingham’s First Internet Exchange

April 27, 2023

Data centre provider Proximity Data Centres has today announced the launch of the “first regional internet exchange in the heart of the West Midlands” of England – IX Birmingham, which could increase network resilience, reduce latency and long distance IP traffic for those local networks, CDNs and broadband ISPs that harness it.

The new exchange, which is located within Proximity’s Birmingham Edge 8 tier 3 data centre, claims it can boost performance by eliminating the need to route all of an operator’s data via exchanges in London and Manchester – local data stays local while other data can be accessed through traditional centralised internet exchanges.

The move forms part of Proximity’s previously announced plan to roll-out of a new network of regional internet exchanges across the United Kingdom and Europe, which would be based at each of Proximity’s regional colocation data centres and handled by their new Edge IX division
