Equinix Internet Exchange Paris

Established in April 2008, Equinix Internet Exchange Paris is the leading Internet Exchange in France, providing peering services to over 366 participants. The Equinix Internet Exchange provides a highly-available switching platform for network interconnection. This efficient and cost-effective service is designed to reduce operating costs and enable efficient IP traffic interchange by aggregating thousands of peering sessions.

Paris is a central location for the exchange of Internet traffic between the United States, Europe and Africa, as well as acting as a hub for French Internet traffic, which is among the highest in the world. France's central location in Europe and border with the Mediterranean Sea means many submarine cable systems land here, bringing providers to Europe from Africa, the Middle East, India and Asia Pacific. This makes Paris an ideal location for the exchange of Internet traffic.

Why Equinix?

As the leading global network-neutral data center provider, Equinix offers network service providers, content & digital media properties, enterprises, financial firms and cloud/SaaS platforms the ability to connect with over 900 networks worldwide. The Equinix Internet Exchange provides an efficient and cost-effective means to leverage these ecosystems for traffic exchange and transit.

Through the Equinix Internet Exchange service, customers can directly connect to each other for traffic exchange via a convenient and flexible central switching fabric managed by Equinix. This streamlined connectivity improves end-to-end network performance, reduces latency and packet loss, and lowers overall IP transit costs.

Equinix has been a world leader in Internet Exchange services since 2001, operating 22 Internet Exchanges in the United States, Europe, and Asia. In Paris, we bring the same knowledge and experience to our Internet Exchange.
