Frequently Asked Questions
What is an IXP in a data center?
Many large data centers called carrier hotels are homes to the physical infrastructure of an internet exchange point, or IXP. These data centers become the physical “point” of exchange for different Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and networks. Inside of a data center, large networks can directly interconnect with each other to exchange internet traffic directly. IXPs are an important of the global internet infrastructure because they facilitate the rapid exchange of data between large networks, improving network performance, reducing latency, and lowering the cost of data transit. You can learn more about how IXPs can improve your network strategy.
What is an IXP in networking?
An Internet Exchange Point (IXP) is a physical location, often a data center, that enables multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and networks to interconnect and exchange traffic directly. IXPs provide a common meeting point for various networks to exchange data, and are a foundational part of the global internet. Instead of relying on third-party networks to transmit data between them, internet service providers (ISPs) and other network operators can establish direct connections at an IXP.
What is the difference between IXP and peering?
Large networks peer with one another at an internet exchange point (IXP). An IXP is a physical location, often a data center, that houses the equipment that facilitates the peering process between internet service providers (ISPs) and other network operators. An IXP is a centralized location where networks can establish direct connections to exchange traffic. Peering can occur at locations other than IXPs. Private peering arrangements between two networks can be established wherever two networks have a presence. IXPs simplify and streamline the peering process by bringing multiple networks together in a common location.
