As Italy’s leading interconnection platform, MIX provides a number of solutions to meet your network needs. Peering Services enable all networks to interconnect with one another to exchange internet traffic.

The MIX Public Peering service provides you with an interconnection platform with the highest concentration of connected networks in Italy, with ease and at competitive prices.

This service is used by network operators, carriers, content providers, and enterprises that require enhanced network optimisation and performance.

MIX customers can easily improve their network performance and achieve low-latency with a cost-effective interconnection.

MIX also offers the use of a route server to allow customers to easily connect to multiple connected networks.

To exchange Internet traffic, Customers can locate their hardware in the MIX Datacentre or at one of the many datacentres that hosts the MIX interconnection platform. If your network is far away from one of the 11 MIX locations, you can interconnect remotely via our Partnership Program

VLAN Option

It is an extension of the basic service by which operators already connected to the MIX make peering arrangements through dedicated VLANs.

The service is useful when reselling transit or when the amount of traffic exchanged is such that it would benefit from a dedicated interconnection.


Better insight and control over routing and Internet data flows
Opportunities to route traffic flows
Reserved through resources currently in use by other network operators connected to the MIX
Real-time visibility of statistics on the private peering VLAN
Total traffic, traffic by interface, traffic to any other individual peer and traffic by TCP/UDP port type, visible only to operators connected in the private peering arrangement

  • Have their own public Autonomous System number issued by RIPE or an equivalent registry and their own public IP numbering
  • Are connected to the Internet network with at least one provider that can guarantee them a “full routing table”
