Connecting Networks

Welcome to the LyonIX IXP

LyonIX is the Internet traffic eXchange Point of Lyon operated by Rezopole, a non-profit organization.

LyonIX members can improve the quality of their Internet traffic and can benefit from lower bandwidth prices. Therefore the IXP helps develop very high speed Internet in Lyon.

LyonIX is also a NAP (Network Access Point), a market place which allows members to buy or sell Internet transit and/or any layer 2 or IP services.

The Lyon IXP is open to all economic players who want to connect – operators, ISPs, carriers, large companies and municipalities.
