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.
Unlike what many imagine, the Internet does not float in the air. It exists thanks to cables, datacenters and IXP controlled by companies. Francesca Musiani, CNRS research officer, explains why it is necessary to understand these mechanisms in order to be an informed Internet user.

The program Le Dessous des cartes, broadcast on Arte, presents the importance of the optical fibres that criss-cross our oceans. Today more than 420 cables are buried to carry 99% of our digital data. These infrastructures have become a major challenge for governments and Internet giants.
