Internet Exchange Federation (IX-F)
In November 2012, at the 21st Euro-IX forum in Stockholm, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between APIX (Asia Pacific Internet Exchange Point Association), LAC-IX (Latin America & Caribbean Internet Exchange Point Association) and Euro-IX, to create the Internet Exchange Federation (IX-F). The IX-F will act as a platform for affiliated Internet Exchange Point Associations (IXPAs). We will work together to build a global IXP community and help the development of IXP throughout the world.
During the AfPIF (African Peering and Interconnect Forum) in August 2012 in Johannesburg, the Internet Exchange Point community in Africa decided to form the African Internet Exchange Point Association, namely Af-IX. The Af-IX is still at very early stages, however will plan to join the IX-F as soon as they are ready.
