Connecting Networks

Welcome to the GrenoblIX IXP


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

GrenoblIX 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.

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