Welcome to the IXP Database

The IXP Database (IXPDB) aims to be an authoritative, comprehensive, public source of data related to IXPs. It collects data directly from IXPs through a recurring automated process. It also integrates data from third-party sources in order to provide a comprehensive and corroborated view of the global interconnection landscape. The combined data can be viewed, analyzed, and exported through this web-based interface and an API.
