Launched by Belnet (the Belgian network of Research & Education) in 1995, BNIX (the Belgian National Internet eXchange) improves the speed and quality of IP traffic between Belgian networks and the major Internet providers, content providers, hosting organisations and companies. BNIX was set up to guarantee the future and the development of the Internet in Belgium. BNIX makes Belgian Internet traffic faster, more efficient and more economical. This occurs by offering large and small organisations an Internet eXchange so that they can organise the Internet traffic between them more efficiently. Their users and customers also benefit.
BNIX has three physical locations in and around Brussels. By spreading its infrastructure across different locations, BNIX guarantees operational reliability.
