IXP Reseller

IXP Reseller allows our LINX members the ability to peer at other Internet Exchanges using one of our partners, through their existing LINX LON1 ports.

Members connected to the LON1 platform will by using private VLANs across the LINX platform connect to other partner exchanges.  Partners providing the transport varies for different partner Exchanges, and can be either the partner Exchange directly, or through one of our ConneXion reseller partners. Members wishing to connect to a remote Exchange will have to comply with the connectivity rules of the partner exchange as well as the transport provider.

Members have the option to provision a dedicated LINX port to the partner exchange or use a pVLAN connection on an existing LINX port to reach the partner Exchange over the transport provider.

Contractual Terms and support arrangement will vary for each of the partner Exchanges and transport providers. Below you will see the Partner Exchanges available as well as the transport provider options and associated terms and conditions.
