In August 2016, ECIX was acquired by Megaport, growing network reach significantly and broadening service offerings.

The European Commercial Internet Exchange, or ECIX (a trademark of Peering GmbH), was founded in Berlin, Germany in 2001. ECIX is Germany’s second largest IXP, both by membership and traffic, and one of largest IXPs in Europe.

ECIX operates carrier neutral peering through IXPs in 25 sites across five cities: Berlin, Munich, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Hamburg. In addition, ECIX provides remote peering in and to Amsterdam, Luxembourg and Nuremberg. Over 150 different parties are connected to ECIX and our peak traffic regularly exceeds 1 Tbps.

The ECIX platforms offer a number of value added services. These are provided by ECIX itself as well as in cooperation with partners. MPLS-based L2 Transport for public peering, private peering and site interconnection are available between all sites in all cities. ECIX takes pride in being highly active within the peering community. We would like to invite you to join us and boost your network.
