LU-CIX is happy to welcome EuroTransit GmbH, an international German-based Global IP Transit and Carrier Services Provider, as a new LU-CIX member, two months after EuroTransit’s participation at the LU-CIX Online Gaming Forum of December 13, 2011.
Claude Demuth, CEO of LU-CIX Management GIE, says that “it is very important for Luxembourg as a new European online gaming hotspot to have an Internet PoP of an European low latency Internet service provider such as EuroTransit”, adding that low latency is key for online gaming companies and real-time games.
EuroTransit started life in 2002 out of a service provider to the online gaming community. Success came from building a network that was highly reliable with the extremely low latency needed to service a large community of online gamers.
EuroTransit GmbH is glad about their presence in Luxembourg and the availability of their portfolio in the LuxConnect datacenter in Bettembourg. “This expansion towards Luxembourg as a valuable ICT location for a lot of companies, fits perfectly into our plans”, Florian Hibler, CTO of EuroTransit says. “For the improvement of our network quality we also took the opportunity to connect to Luxembourg’s Internet Exchange LU-CIX to off-load and collect regional and unique traffic.”
EuroTransits portfolio includes Global IP Transit, as well as transport connections to all on-net locations.
