LSIX, short for LayerSwitch Internet Exchange, is a regional peering platform based out of The Netherlands.
An Internet Exchange Point (also known as IX or IXP) is a peer to peer platform through which network operators exchange Internet traffic between their networks (autonomous systems).
Peering is the exchange of data between two parties directly attached or on the same LAN rather than via the public Internet.
The LSIX is open to any (international) network operator. Examples of acceptable networks but not limited to are Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs).
