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.
According to Cisco, the annual IP datacenter traffic will globally reach 10.4 Zb in 2019, including 8.6 Zb generated by the only Cloud services.
Philippe Silberzahn, professor at EMLYON Business School and researcher associated with the Ecole Polytechnique, published an article on the errors of Thery report 1994 "Information highways". In this article Silberzahn reveals the errors of this report focusing on the future of information highways and the Internet role.
Roberto di Lallo, Italian computer scientist at Roma Tre University, made a research on the importance of IXPs, Internet eXchange Points and their effects on the latency of networks. IXPs are infrastructures used by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to exchange traffic between their Autonomous Systems (ASes).
