Internet traffic is growing fast. More people are making use of wireless devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Cisco predicts in its Visual Networking Index that Internet traffic from these devices will exceed traffic from wired devices by 2014. Moreover, peak Internet traffic is growing more rapidly than average traffic. Cisco’s index reports that peak traffic will increase nearly fivefold by 2016. These developments put a large pressure on the capacity of IP networks. For organizations already dealing with high amounts of Internet traffic (such as a hosting provider), a 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) connection to an Internet exchange is a good solution.
Wow… Just wow… That’s the best description of the LeaseWeb Texel Airshow 2012. LeaseWeb was the proud head sponsor of this unique event, which took place on the 28th of July on the island of Texel, the Netherlands. We had been working like mad men (and women) in the weeks leading up to day of the show, designing t-shirts, ordering fifteen thousand miniature versions of the LeaseWeb Extra 330LT, and doing quite a bit of PR-activity to attract attention to the event. We also invited many customers and partners to enjoy the spectacle with us. And, of course, all our employees were welcome too, whether they worked in our Dutch, German or American offices.
