Located in Amsterdam, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Hamburg, ECIX provides a neutral traffic exchange for access providers, carriers, data centres, CDNs, non-profit organisations and hosters – just everyone who needs peering.
Together with their partners, ECIX also offers remote peering and transport to several locations and other IXPs.
Internet Peering is based on connecting various networks with each other on a peering platform. Connecting to ECIX Internet Peering gives the network access to all other members of the peering platform. This allows a very cost efficient way to connect to a multitude of networks with a single Ethernet connection. This serves to both improve the performance as well as improve the redundancy of your network.
The technology used is a standard Ethernet Service with support of VLANs. On the connection layer, IPv4 and IPv6 Unicast are used.
All platforms are monitored 24 hours a day and 7 days a week (24*7) by our NOC. Customers have access to a Customer-Self-Care (CSC) portal, where they are able to manage accounts and addresses, view live traffic on their port and view the peering-matrix.
