There was a need for an important work for the London Olympics in 2012:
- Massive infrastructure upgrade -> LINX doubled core capacity (all in Telehouse)
- LINX has a connected capacity of> 7 TB/s
- LINX has ~ 12 TB/sec of core capacity own itself in Telehouse
- Most of this has happened because LINX was the first in the world to run on Juniper Networks’ massive PTX core routers. The driver was at the 2012 Olympics
- It is also the first to serve 100G Edge Port. This was also done for BT for 2012 Games
