It felt great to be back in Germany for the 6th annual international carrier networking event (cnX6)  on October 15-16. cnX6 is a 2-day event hosted by ancotel and DE-CIX, the carrier neutral leaders in the interconnection and peering segment. With over 280 attendees and 57 exhibitors, cnX6 offered managers and decision makers from international Internet and telecom companies the opportunity to discuss market trends and establish new valuable business contacts.


KJ Orth and Frank Zachmann from ancotel, kicked off Day 1 with opening remarks and welcomed Equinix as ancotel’s new shareholder. Equinix acquired ancotel just a few months ago in a strategic decision aligned with Equinix’s global ambition as the world’s leading supplier of carrier dense data center space. Herald Summa of DE-CIX, along with the Master of Ceremonies, Hunter Newby of Allied Fiber, welcomed guests to network.



JSA had a strong international presence at the show; Inteliquent, KDDI/TELEHOUSE and Zayo were a few clients in attendance. Attendees enjoyed networking, lunch, happy hour and the option to test drive the ancotel branded 2012 Tesla, a premium energy efficient electric sports car.
