What is IIX?

The Israeli Internet eXchange is the central meeting point of the Internet Service Providers in Israel. Its purpose is to route all intra-Israel Internet traffic, among the operators, as efficiently as possible.
Physical Components of IIX

The IIX is a actually a layer-3 switching device (router). IIX Peers connect directly to this router. This can be done in several ways:

* Via an ATM connection (PVC) over an ATM network of a licensed carrier.
* Via a direct transmission line, from a licensed carrier.
* Via a LAN based connection, from a licensed carrier.

Typically, the shared ATM connections are used by Peers with lower bandwidth requirements. Peers that need higher bandwidth to the IIX use a direct transmission (SDH) or a LAN based connection (GE).
