New EuroGIX member: Kbleu!

In 1990, no way to correctly receive television at Ferrette: the hertzian waves don't pass, they bounce. Three friends fond of technics set-up their cables: it was the birth of the local network, named Kbleu... and television reached Ferette!


Kbleu chooses to operate as a municipal or inter-municipal local authority structure.


In 2015, this authority manages the TV, Internet and telephony distribution infrastructures for the citizens of both municipalities. The friends are still there: energetic volunteers and experts, they practice sharing for the benefit of all. Proponents of open-source software and its spirit, they provide an alternative to the market-based model. And refuse to give-up and bend before the leading market operators...


Kbleu animates the local channel and distributes television, telephony and Internet, for all residents of Ferrette and Vieux Ferrette. Saying "Kbleu" means a cable (we are located in the south of Alsace...). It is a simple play on words of the malicious inventors.


Kbleu is present at EuroGIX, rack 1B02.

 What Kbleu appreciates:

  • Simplicity: clear offer of services
  • Quality: professional expert technicians
  • Public service: no shareholders, the net income is used entirely for network improvement
  • Reduced Costs: volunteers invest themselves for you!
  • Integration of inhabitants: multicultural programs
  • Investment in local life: KbleuTV, hosting of Internet sites for associations, partnerships with small and medium-sized enterprises, Internet filter for schools
  • Reactivity: a whish? Kbleu is listening to you... and does its best!
  • Challenges: Kbleu is successful in meeting all its goals!

  Kbleu today is:

  • A unique TV subscription of more than 130 programs including a pack of pay-TV channels
  • The 120 world's radio stations streamed over the network
  • A standard Internet subscription (25 Mbits) and THD option (100 Mbits)
  • A telephone subscription

AS-PC: new member on EuroGIX!

Established in 1996, AS-PC is specialized in infrastructure, services, data hosting of informatics and telecommunication solutions.

Why join EuroGIX?

Technical reasons:

"EuroGIX will allow us to reach our regional and local customers without passing through Paris or Francfort and this will provide two main advantages:


  • on one hand, a latency decrease, which will improve the fluidity and quality perceived by our services,
  • on the other hand, an increase of capacities, which simply allows to provide services that would be unattainable before or extremely costly".

Practical reasons:

"The Alsace has a strong history of cross-border region with a number of large companies on both sides of the Rhine. As for the majority of our local colleagues, our customers include some of these companies. The EuroGIX extension in Kelh allows us to offer them more effective interconnections (which don't follow the path of Strasbourg, Paris, Amsterdam, Francfort, Kelh to make 20 km) and also to offer them our services".

Philosophical reasons:

"Firstly, we are a structure organised on a human scale and we can't be specialised in everything and provide all services. It is therefore important for us to be interconnected with our colleagues in order to provide them the services that we are extremely good at and to use the services provided by them.

Then, the connectivity has become an absolute must. If we are not capable of providing a quality connectivity, there is a good reason to bet that within the next ten years, there will be only remaining in our remote region "network endpoints" or actors perfused by the governments.

So, if we do not wish to move to Paris or change our profession, we have to mobilize to repeat the LyonIX successful experience".

New EuroGIX member: Euskill

Founded in 2007 by experienced engineers and "computer geeks", Euskill provides high-tech services to companies in the area of cloud computing (IaaS type), development, and Big Data. Click here to learn more...


At its inception, Euskill started its hosting business in the online game sector with its Myriapulse game server location service wich technologies, developed internally, provide reliability, availability, and performance advantage to Euskill against its competitors. It is thanks to these advantages but also to the accelerated adoption of new technologies, such as high performance storage system based on SSD drives, that the service was able to rapidly impose itself on this market.


This experience was naturally used as a springboard to the Cloud Computing. Indeed, the Nodilex cloud computing platform uses technologies similar to those for the game servers and the final user expectations in term of availability and performance are identical. This Public Cloud offer was subsequently declined in the form of the Private Cloud in order to meet requirements of companies concerned in maintaining a dedicated environment.


These innovative products, allying simplicity, efficiency, and performance, were adopted by thousands of customers throughout Europe.


Based in France, in Strasbourg, Euskill pays particular attention to data protection in order to guarantee for its customers a high level of confidentiality.


Euskill is constantly listening to its customers, and the company provides its services with the highest requirements. All the technologies and equipment used on our platforms are tested and meet the performance, reliability, and security highest standards.  


Euskill is present at the EuroGIX 1B02 rack.

ASN : 50535



Why join EuroGIX?

Thomas Schneider, Euskill CEO, explains: "In order to develop the Alsatian local Internet networking, Euskill took the decision to be connected to the EuroGIX Internet eXchange Point.


With our content provider activity via our Nodilex hosting cloud platform, it is our interest to join this eXchange point and thus to improve our connectivity to the local actors.


We offer to our users better performance to our network by reducing the distance traveled by the data between Internet service and content providers.


Furthermore, Euskill is ready to contribute to the development on the EuroGIX platform in order to make it evolve into one of the first cross-border eXchange point of the world Internet traffic, notably thanks to its strategic position on the French-German border, and thus establish itself as a crucial and essential European eXchange point".
