COMMUNITY PARTNERS
The European Internet Exchange Association (Euro-IX) gathers 73 IXPs from around the world. It was formed in May 2001 with the intention to develop, strengthen and improve the Internet Exchange Point (IXP) community. A number of IXPs recognised a need to combine their resources in order to coordinate technical standards, develop common procedures, share and publish statistics and other useful information. This would in turn give all interested parties a better insight into the world of IXPs.
As an association of Internet Exchanges, we promote an open interchange of ideas and experiences by offering fora, meetings, mailing lists and online resources, like the IXP Database. We also gather information on regulatory issues affecting member IXPs within the Euro-IX region and where appropriate from other jurisdictions. Even though our Fora are held within the Euro-IX region, IXPs from other regions (APIX, Af-IX, LAC-IX & North America) are welcome to join our membership and attend our meetings so that they can contribute and benefit from our shared expertise and experiences.
Our vision is to be the number one place for information about Internet Exchange Points - www.euro-ix.net
