Building Community and Consensus to Foster Data Center and Interconnection Standards


As the Internet proliferates, so do inconsistencies in connectivity, resiliency, and security. It's up to the entire Internet community

to overcome these challenges. That's why major data centers, network operators, content distribution networks, content creators,

consumers and others come together to form Open-IX.


Open-IX is a self-regulated community that's formed to foster the development of critical Data Center and IXP technical and operating

standards in a framework that works for everyone. Open-IX:


  • Promotes uniform specifications for data transfer and physical connectivity
  • Creates resiliency to improve reliability
  • Certifies Internet Exchanges and Data Centers that meet the community developed standards


Stay informed, share ideas and help shape the future of global interconnection and data center industry standards.
