We offer Internet Exchange Point services based out of Waterloo Ontario.
In order for the Internet to work in the manner we are all used to, individual carriers, ISPs, content delivery, production networks and network operators need to exchange data by granting others access to their networks.
That access is either agreed to on a payment basis – for transit/upstream – or on a cost neutral basis, otherwise known as peering.
Peering is a process by which two Internet networks connect and exchange traffic. It allows a direct hand off of traffic between each other’s customers.
At WaterlooIX, our peers consist of a broad range of enterprise organizations, government and educational institutions. Most organizations with an Autonomous System Number (ASN) can connect to the exchange through our interconnect locations. Learn more about the requirements of “Getting Connected”.
