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 the ten largest IXPs in Europe and worldwide. In 2015, we acquired the oldest internet exchange in Germany: INXS (Munich), which was founded in 1994.
ECIX operates carrier neutral peering through IXPs in 25 sites across five cities: Berlin, Munich, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt and Hamburg. In addition, we provide our customers with 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. Find out more about our services, prices and connect to ECIX!
