The London Internet Exchange (LINX) is one of the largest Internet exchanges in the world, connecting over 880 member ASNs from over 80 countries around the globe. LINX continues to expand their London presence with 16 locations across the capital along with regional exchanges in Wales, Manchester and Scotland. LINX also operates an Internet exchange in the Ashburn metro area in the US just outside Washington DC. As a not-for-profit organisation, we focus on investing our service and membership fees into strengthening LINX network services. This ensures that our infrastructure is world leading and that we remain at the forefront of the IXP industry. By doing so, we can confidently provide our members with improved network performance, low latency and more control.
Until LINX NoVA launched in 2014, the Ashburn metro area, one of the largest interconnect locations in the world, was a single point of failure. Today our members can enjoy platform diversity as well as a choice of colocation providers in the region, which in turn has improved the Internet in general in the region. LINX NoVA is located at CoreSite in Reston. LINX NoVA is not connected back to the LINX exchange in London. It is our mission to keep traffic local as this gives the fastest exchange of traffic and as a result, the best service to our members. Just some of the benefits of joining an Internet exchange and peering are; improved performance, lower latency, greater resilience and overall control of traffic routing.
