The Milan Internet Exchange – MIX – is the largest internet exchange in Italy and one of Europe’s leaders in terms of data traffic carried. MIX is the interconnection point where internet operators (ISPs, carriers, content and hosting providers) connect for efficient IP data traffic exchange.
Formed in 2000, MIX now has 19 of the leading Italian internet companies among its members and plays a key role in improving the nation’s use of the internet by providing all ISPs with a high-speed, low-latency peering platform that enables efficient data exchange. MIX offers peering services to both Italian and foreign operators.
With an aggregated data traffic of over 584 Gbps, MIX represents Italy’s most important root zone of internet operators and carriers and is one of the most significant European internet exchanges. Elevated accessibility from every point of the Italian and European internet makes MIX an ideal choice for the hosting of top level domain name server and root name server services.
