The Basics of Peering Exchanges

An Internet exchange is a marketplace that allows Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to directly interconnect networks and exchange IP traffic. Peering is the exchange between two independent networks for the benefit of both networks. CoreSite data centers offer access to a variety of peering exchanges, including the CoreSite Any2Exchange® for Internet peering, as well as leading global peering exchanges such as AMS-IX, DE-CIX, LINX and NYIIX.

Key Benefits of Peering

The Internet is a global system of interconnected networks—essentially a network of networks. An Internet exchange is a marketplace that allows Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to directly interconnect these networks and exchange IP traffic.

Lower Costs

ISPs can avoid the costs of third-party networks.

Lower Latency

Peering creates faster, more direct data flows with fewer network hops.

Increased Redundancy

Peering increases available paths, which improves routing, efficiency and fault tolerance.
