Internet2 Peer Exchange (I2PX) was designed from the ground up to focus on hosting providers most valued by the Research and Education community. It is available to connectors at no additional fee and connectors can extend the peering to their own downstreams.
Members can leverage their existing Internet2 Network investments to help serve their commercial Internet needs. In addition to enhanced network performance and cost savings, I2PX allows you to more efficiently adapt to innovative uses of network resources both inside of the Internet2 Network and out in the commercial internet by providing high-speed access to network-intensive applications, such as interactive social networking and high-definition video, among others.
I2PX provides high performance, low latency, and efficient (1 hop) access to some of the top content destinations in the world including: Google, Zoom, Netflix, and other commercial content providers. The service supports IPv4 and IPv6.
Currently, the service offers nearly 300,000 routes through peering partnerships with commercial networks. Additional private and public peering connections are being evaluated to further improve and diversify our commercial network peering infrastructure.
