An Internet Exchange (IX) improves Internet performance by interconnecting all networks on an open-access ethernet fabric — providing low-latency, high bandwidth, cost-efficiency, in a locale.
All participants connect to the shared switching fabric using Ethernet - either via copper or fiber. Participants use the Border Gateway routing Protocol (BGP) to exchange routing information with other connected networks.
Right now we have one switch available for cross connects - located at the Hurricane Electric FMT2 datacenter.
We are not charging port fees.
Yes. Our route servers support strict IRRDB filtering and have strict prefix limits to prevent invalid routes from entering participants’ routing tables.
We currently use the following prefixes on the peering VLAN:
Yes! Our PeeringDB page is: https://www.peeringdb.com/ix/3634 and we can also be found on Hurricane Electric’s BGP Toolkit.
We use BIRD to power our route servers, which is a widely adopted routing engine used on IX’s around the world.
