News-item-image_gold-partners-2017-3

We are pleased to announce EvoSwitch, Equinix, RETN and Console as our best performing resellers of 2016.
With 98 new parties joining AMS-IX in 2016, more than 800 networks are now connected at our exchange in Amsterdam. We would not have achieved this milestone without the contribution of our reselling partners via whom 67% of our new customers connected last year. Congratulations to EvoSwitch, Equinix and RETN who maintain their Gold Partner status for another year and to Console who earned the Silver Partner status.

“Our partners continue to play a very important role in AMS-IX’s growth and we would like to once again express our gratitude to all of them.” - Onno Bos, Sales Director of AMS-IX

About the AMS-IX Partner Program 
The AMS-IX Partner Program allows qualified third parties to offer the AMS-IX service remotely, resulting in higher margins and reduced levels of administration. Partners can resell AMS-IX ports from where their infrastructure is connected to the AMS-IX colocations in Amsterdam.

Gold and Silver Partner requirements 
To qualify for the AMS-IX Gold Partner status, resellers had to connect at least 20 customers or 100GE (Gigabit Ethernet) of port capacity in 2016. For the Silver Partner status, resellers had to connect at least 10 customers or 50GE of port capacity. The status is valid until the end of 2017.
