GPX Mumbai becomes the first OIX-2 certified facility in South Asia, enhancing GPX’s Indian footprint
GPX Global Systems Inc., a premier provider of carrier-neutral colocation datacenter services within the MENA and South Asian regions, today announced that its Mumbai datacenter facility has been granted the respected OPEN-IX™ OIX-2 Certification.
OIX-2 is a best-in-class global certification for datacenters looking to serve as carrier-neutral points of network interconnection. The GPX Mumbai facility is the first Indian & South Asian datacenter to meet the rigorous requirements of this global standard. GPX’s Mumbai datacenter is a major carrier, content & cloud hub, ideally located for access to international sub-sea cable networks spanning India & Asia. The OIX-2 certification highlights GPX as a strategic partner offering colocation for core IP networks, content & cloud platforms, as well non-discriminatory access to all network providers. The certification also expresses GPX’s position to advance OIX’s task to improve the global landscape of internet peering and interconnection, applying uniform, cost-efficient standards of performance.
Manoj Paul, MD of GPX India, said, “We’re excited about this achievement – our Mumbai facility is the first in India and the whole of South Asia to receive the coveted OIX certification. This OIX-2 certification shows GPX’s commitment to carrier neutrality and our passion to continually raise standards within the colocation & interconnection market in India.”
Martin Hannigan, Chairperson of the Open-IX™ Association Board of Directors, congratulated GPX on achieving OIX-2 certification and welcomed them to the family of high quality data centers in the Open-IX™ OIX-2 portfolio.
