“The Internet would not be as good as it is today. Why? Because together we create resilient and robust digital infrastructures, and this is the foundation of a better Internet.”

“In 1995, I was a student attending high school. I had a small room filled with computers – and I was already interconnecting them.”
“1995 was a very exciting time. As the CEO of a consulting firm, I helped the German software industry to develop – and quickly realized that this was a new era.”

On 26 June, we will celebrate our 25th anniversary in Cologne, together with eco, the Association of the Internet Industry. As soon as registration opens, we’ll let you know. The registration will initially be open for DE-CIX customers and partners and eco members only.
