INX-ZA has expanded the Johannesburg Internet Exchange (JINX) beyond the Rosebank facility that has served Africa’s oldest Internet exchange for 20 years.

JINX is managed by INX-ZA, which currently operates the only community-run, public Internet exchanges in South Africa at data centres in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban.

The expansion followed an agreement between INX-ZA and data centre operator Hetzner.

The partnership has seen INX-ZA extend the reach of JINX to Hetzner’s data centre in Samrand, Gauteng.

Hetzner’s Data Centre Park is close to major fibre routes and telecoms infrastructure, which INX-ZA said enables easy interconnects, lower latencies, and better performance when connecting to the Internet exchange point.

“This month’s JINX multisite launch follows last month’s launch of a Durban Internet Exchange (DINX) multisite,” said Nishal Goburdhan, INX-ZA Manager.

Plans are underway to also extend multisite capabilities to the Cape Town Internet Exchange (CINX).
