France-IX welcomes its first Eastern European member Evolink

Paris, 24 January 2013 – The French internet exchange point, France-IX, signs the Bulgarian internet service provider (ISP) Evolink, its first member from Eastern Europe. The connection of this new member proves that in less than 3 years, France-IX managed to be listed among the most important IXPs in the world.

Evolink is a leading Bulgarian telecommunications company that provides and maintains a wide range of telecommunications services. Focused on constantly delivering the highest quality services to its customers apart from bringing directly traffic from TIER-1 providers, Evolink is also present at major Internet exchanges in the Netherlands and in Germany. These two platforms are the focal point for traffic exchanged between Eastern Europe and Western Europe. Evolink is also a member of the BIX – the Bulgarian Internet Exchange.

Therefore by connecting to France-IX, Evolink has come to get something more. As Svetoslav Hristov,  Business Development Manager & Chairman of the Board at Evolink, explains : « At Evolink we always strive to improve our traffic performance, to bring in new services to our customers, to be different, to be innovative.  We believe that France-IX would be a valuable addition in terms of improving our traffic performance even further».

Franck Simon, Managing Director at France-IX, emphasizes: « Connecting a member coming from outside our natural circle of influence, which consists of Western Europe, Africa and Middle-East, represents a huge achievement for us. It reinforces the idea that we managed to prove that France-IX is a significant international IXP and will become one of the biggest points within the next few years ».
