The IXP Database (IXPDB) is a live public source of data related to Internet Exchange Points (IXPs). It automatically collects data directly from IXP management systems in order to provide an accurate up-to-date view of the global interconnection landscape.

The IXPDB contains a wide range of data related to IXP architecture, membership, hardware, capacity, and utilisation. As a result, it can uniquely satisfy a wide range of use cases including commercial analysis, network automation, and historical benchmarking. The data can be explored via this website and exported in full detail via our free API.
