What is IX/IXP?

An Internet Exchange Point (IX or IXP) is a physical infrastructure that allows different Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) and sometimes companies with large networks to connect to each other and exchange local traffic between their networks by means of mutual peering agreements, which allow traffic to be exchanged at much faster speeds and reduces the cost of international routing.
So far there are Six ISP’s connected to AIXP. For more understanding please check the FAQ’s below or contact us, you may also want to visit AIXP’s website.
