Euro-IX IXP BCOPs

The Euro-IX IXP community has collaborated to produce the following Best Current Operational Practices (BCOP) 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 in these pages reflects the BCOPs of the Euro-IX IXP community however one should carefully explore all possible options before putting any IXP plan into action and this effort is intended to act as a thought provoker rather than the definitive guide to building an IXP.

These BCOPs are a continuous work in progress, if you have any comments or feedback please contact us.

IX Member List JSON Schema can be found here.

Most IXP’s 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. Please send feedback to:
