One of the most effective ways to improve latency and reduce costs is through peering: the direct exchange of IP traffic between two networks for free, rather than paying for IP transit. Peering via an Internet exchange enables you to connect once to the Internet exchange point (IXP) and then arrange peering agreements with any of the other networks connected to it. The IXP brings multiple peering networks together, enabling them to exchange traffic more cost-effectively and quickly.
INEX is a neutral, not-for-profit IXP for the island of Ireland. Interxion’s Dublin data centre campus has housed INEX since 2009. INEX requires its host data centres to provide a world-class standard facility, operational resilience, and business continuity management.
Coupled with a responsive and helpful team, this enables INEX to respond quickly to members’ requests and maintain a top-class Internet exchange infrastructure in Ireland.
