Based on global traffic volume, the news positions NetIX at number 24 of the top 25 internet exchanges, also making NetIX the fastest growing IXP with average traffic levels doubling within 12 months.

Last night (3rd February 2021) NetIX joined the Big Boy’s Club, and hit 1Tbps of peak traffic which has pushed us into the top 25 IXPs by traffic capacity globally,” said Angel Gyurov (pictured), chief product development officer at NetIX and Neterra.
“We believe we’ll be able to deliver, meet, and exceed all customer expectations and demands, and are ready to enter the top ten IXPs in the world, and then take on the challenge to push into the top five.”
NetIX’s ecosystem is comprised of 140+ members, 30+ IXPs, and 8,000+ networks across 65 cities and any connected network can benefit by connecting to any peer or location using the same port.
