Description


This dataset provides information about Internet eXchange Points (IXPs) and their geographic locations, facilities, prefixes, and member ASes.

An Internet eXchange Point (IX or IXP) is a physical infrastructure used by Internet service providers (ISPs) and content delivery networks (CDNs) to exchange Internet traffic between their networks (Autonomous Systems - ASes). IXPs are located in numerous data centers, aka facilities, and a single facility can contain mutliple IXPs. Each IXP has a prefix, or collection of prefixes, which is used by companies/ASes to address machines within the IXP infrastructure. An AS connected to a given IXP is known as a member of that IXP. Internet traffic exchange through an IXP makes use of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) that recognizes ISPs and CDNs by their Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs).
This dataset provides information about Internet eXchange Points (IXPs) and their geographic locations, facilities, prefixes, and member ASes. It is derived by combining information from PeeringDB, Hurricane Electric, Packet Clearning House (PCH), Wikipedia, BGP Looking Glass, and GeoNames. All files are in JSONL (JSON Lines) format and contain the date when they were generated.
This dataset is the subject of ongoing measurement and data collection. As such the data is continuously growing. Researchers who are granted access will be able to download updates for a period of one year after their request.
