UK London Internet Exchange Hits Peak of 4Tbps Data Traffic

Thursday, December 14th, 2017 (1:18 pm) - Score 1,565

The London Internet Exchange (LINX), which provide a neutral interconnection facility and peering platform that is home to 780 members (connecting from over 77 countries worldwide), has hit a new maximum traffic peak on their public peering LANs of 4Tbps (Terabits per second).

The milestone peak was achieved yesterday afternoon (13th December 2017) at around 8:15pm. By comparison LINX was seeing daily peaks of around 2.8Tbps at this time last year and peering traffic often then falls away a bit over the Christmas and New Year period.

Traffic on LINX has been threatening to break the 4Tbps mark for the past few weeks but this is the first time that we’ve seen it happen. Next stop.. 5Tbps.

    It apparently spiked to 5.93 Tbps around 09:00 this morning 18/12/2017, though that looks slightly dubious compared with 2.69 Tbps fifteen minutes earlier and 2.81 Tbps fifteen minutes later

      And now that anomaly has been removed, replaced by a plummet at 09:00 to 0.5 Tbps, probably deleting the anomaly for “London Juniper” rather than replacing it with a sensible number. It would not surprise me if it changed again
