Internet Exchange

Equinix Internet Exchange (IX) allows networks to effectively exchange internet traffic. You can connect with peers through peering sessions and save time by managing your ports directly.

IX takes advanced measures to ensure the security of the platform by using the Internet Routing Registry, and offering BGP-based remotely triggered black hole filtering to drop DDoS attacks before they reach your router. This solution spans over 35 peering exchange points across the globe, with traffic peaks that exceed 10 terabits per second (Tbps).

This release includes an enhancement to the Link Aggregation Group (LAG) and redundant port capabilities by including remote IX ports in a LAG or redundancy pair.

Internet Exchange 2020.2.1 is available October 19, 2020.
