An Internet exchange point (or IXP) is a facility through which Internet service providers (ISPs) exchange data traffic between their networks. An IXP reduces the portion of an ISP's traffic which must be delivered via their upstream transit providers, thereby reducing the average per-bit delivery cost of their service. Furthermore, IXPs significantly improve routing efficiency and fault-tolerance.
