*MBIX has expanded its footprint to a second location: Les.net YWG2, 294
Portage Avenue*

During the past two years, since inception, MBIX has existed only in one
location, the GSC datacentre <http://www.exg.ca/gsc/> on the 5th floor of
167 Lombard.  All our peers till today have connected to the Cisco Nexus
7004 installed at this location.

MBIX members always needed to determine how to establish a physical link to
the 167 Lombard building. Today, MBIX has a second option for connecting,
the Les.net YWG2 datacentre, located on the 2nd floor of 294 Portage
Avenue, in Winnipeg.

MBIX has deployed a Cisco Nexus 2232PP, which supports SFP and SFP+
connectors, which support copper at 10, 100 and 1000 Mbps, or fibre at 1
and 10 Gbps.  The fabric extender is linked to the main switch with two 10
Gbps fibre optic links, over dark fibre provided by Les.net.  The level of
performance and services available at the Les.net switch is equivalent to

Interested in connecting to MBIX at the 294 Portage location?  Contact

details of connecting.

Thanks for your interest in MBIX!
