An IXP is a public platform where you can exchange Internet traffic. It provides an infrastructure to easily connect to cloud providers, carriers, CDNs, web platforms, or any company that operates an autonomous system.

If your business relies on Internet connectivity but you never heard about IXPs, the BCIX anniversary might be a good chance to get involved.
