LU-CIX, the Luxembourg Commercial Internet Exchange, has welcomed Creos, owner and operator of electricity and natural gas networks in Luxembourg, as a new connected member.

Creos is a key player in the national energy sector and by managing a highly critical infrastructure, the company has strict and specific needs regarding its Internet traffic and data. By connecting to LU-CIX, Creos ensures that its national Internet traffic is kept within the Grand Duchy, thus providing the safest option to protect its data.

LU-CIX CEO Claude Demuth commented: “It’s an important contribution to national cyber-security that Creos is now connected to LUCIX.” 

In case of international Internet connection problems, Creos will always remain joinable in Luxembourg through LU-CIX and benefit from a guaranteed access to hosted content in Luxembourg. LU-CIX offers also different security services like blackhole services to mitigate Distributed Denial-Of-Service (DDos) attacks that flood a targeted machine with requests to overload and block IT systems.
