AMSTERDAM INTERNET EXCHANGE

The Internet and all its applications have almost become part of our senses these days. Many of us feel the need to be online 24 hours a day, to be interconnected with friends, family, colleagues and customers, or with the world at large. This interconnectivity of people is fed by the interconnectivity of the networks they are using, which is the main purpose of Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX).

Established in the early 1990s as a not-for-profit organisation, AMS-IX is a neutral and independent internet exchange based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Now interconnecting hundreds of networks by offering professional IP exchange services, also called peering services. Peering enables these connected networks to offer stable, fast and cost-effective internet services to their end-users and business customers. Peering is what makes the internet robust and resilient – a network of networks all linked together.
