MIX strengthens the electrical continuity system, for unprecedented reliability

The leading Italian Internet Exchange confirms its commitment to ensuring the highest quality and availability of its services for the interconnection of Internet networks in Italy.

MIX, the main Italian Internet Exchange, announces that it has raised the reliability of the electrical continuity system of its data centres to the 2N level.

This result was obtained by preparing a second MV/LV transformer cabin. The project, launched in mid-2022, was divided into various phases. After an initial feasibility study, a preliminary plan was drawn up for the identification and creation of technical spaces and systems for supplying the new section. This was followed by an executive project, which required the integration of mechanical, electrical and IT aspects. With the testing completed in recent days, the new booth is now fully operational.

In the past, generator sets and UPS systems had already been integrated to a level 2N redundancy degree. With the activation of the second cabin, all components of the MIX data room energy supply system have a backup twin.

Alessandro Talotta, Executive Chairman and President of MIX, comments: “This investment demonstrates MIX’s commitment to being the reference partner of TLC operators for interconnection services in Italy, offering a connectivity platform compliant with the highest technical standards of reliability and safety, already ISO 27001 and OPEN-IX OIX-1 certified”.
