VKontakte becomes 400th MSK-IX participant
The social network VKontakte has joined Russia's leading Internet exchange point MSK-IX. Now Russia's top three social networks VKontakte, Odnoklassniki and Moi Mir owned by Mail.Ru Group are accessible via MSK-IX for mobile operators and their users. Peering exchange via Internet eXchange helps Internet companies reduce the content delivery route and keep major network channels. For end users, it means faster download speeds of website content, games and apps, and also fewer chances of problems arising due to disruption in mobile operators' networks. Peering exchange also makes it possible for MSK-IX to exchange traffic with the VKontakte social network whose key data centers are based in St. Petersburg.
