Best Current Operational Practices


The Euro-IX community has collaborated to produce the following best Current Operational practices (BCOPs) for those looking to either start or further develop their IXP. The following information has been put together by a variety of IXPs in an effort to share their knowledge and experiences with the wider community. The content of this document reflects the BCOPs of our Members, however it is not meant to serve as a definitive guide: you should explore all possibilities carrefully before putting any IXP plan into action.
Note: these BCOPs are a continuous work in progress. If you have any comments or feedback please contact us.


IX Member List JSON Schema

Most IXPs enable their members to fetch a list of the connected members in various formats. The Euro-IX community is working on a portable JSON output format for member lists on IXP websites. The IX Member List JSON Schema can be found here. Please send feedback to: Elisa Jasinska and Nick Hilliard
