(1): This concerns “customer cable,” i.e. the maximum distance between customer equipment and the AMS-IX patch panel.

(2): The type depends on the housing site; certain MMRs contain panels with LC/PC connectors.

(3): Brocade/Foundry LX ≡ Cisco LH

(4): Brocade/Foundry LH ≡ Cisco ZX

(5): As measured at the AMS-IX patch panel
