An Internet Exchange Point (IXP) is a physical network access point through which major Internet infrastructure companies can connect with each other and exchange traffic.
Peering is the arrangement of traffic exchange between Internet networks that aim to share a direct network instead of routing traffic through the Internet. Peering requires the exchange and updating of router information between the peered networks, usually using the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).
Economic benefits: Peering reduces IP transit and infrastructure costs.
Technical benefits: Has larger bandwidth capacity, ensures greater routing control and network resiliency, minimizes latency, and improves users’ experience.
Any network which has its own AS number and publicly routable IP addresses can join LL-IX.
