Asteroid and A2B Internet announce partnership in Amsterdam
Asteroid continues to build key partnerships in Amsterdam
Asteroid International, the interconnection platform innovator, announced today that they are entering into a key partnership with A2B Internet, a highly respected ISP in the Dutch Internet industry.
Asteroid operates the game-changing Asteroid Internet exchange point (IXP) in the Amsterdam Science Park, offering a modern, cost-effective way to peer with some of the largest networks in the world. With its nimble, yet powerful design, the Asteroid platform sets a new standard for IXPs.
“Asteroid believes in keeping things simple,” explains Andy Davidson, CTO at Asteroid. “We don’t compete with our customers, we don’t over-engineer things, and we don’t overcharge. The Asteroid model allows peers to benefit from the competitive conditions of the market for their metro transport needs, reducing their overall cost of peering. It’s a win-win for everyone!”
The A2B Internet partnership offers reliable, high quality connectivity from EvoSwitch AMS1 as well as from Digital Realty (Wenckebachweg) to the Asteroid IXP in the NIKHEF Science Park.
“A2B Internet was an obvious partner for Asteroid to work with,” says Asteroid CEO Remco van Mook. “A2B Internet is a trusted name in the Netherlands peering industry. They understand interconnectivity, and they use their broad experience to help both small enterprises and established players with their IP and network management needs.”
The Dutch ISP A2B Internet is a very active player in the peering industry and a passionate participant in both national and international Internet industry events, such as the European Peering Forum, RIPE and NLNOG.
“We are very excited to partner with Asteroid,” says Erik Bais, CEO of A2B Internet. “Asteroid is challenging the current IXP paradigm with their cost effective, highly automated IXP, and they are responding to a genuine need in the market. We are happy to work with them to further improve interconnectivity in the Netherlands.”
The A2B Internet partnership offers a 10GE wave connection from the two sites to the Asteroid IXP for €645/month.
