Internet peering

Internet Peering is the essential service offered by Internet exchanges. Networks connected to the NIX.CZ platform have the opportunity to interconnect with other connected networks; usually ISPs, content providers, Internet media, search engines and many others. This makes interconnection between networks easier and also more cost efficient.

To carry out faster and easier interconnections, NIX.CZ operates Route Servers for public peering. This service allows networks to connect to the Route Servers where they can mutually interconnect without further configuration.

Service enables data exchange by the employment of IPv4 and IPv6 protocols and is available in the following capacities 1GE, 10GE, 25GE, 40GE, 100GE a 400GE.


The FENIX project was created by the Czech peering node NIX.CZ and is primarily a reaction to intense DoS attacks targeting Czech internet services, media, banks and operators in March 2013. The purpose of the project is to ensure the availability of Internet services of the connected entities during DoS attacks.

A participation in the project is subject to a number of conditions set in the Terms which must be fulfilled by each company wishing to join the project. By joining the FENIX project, the participating organizations have clearly showed their interest in increasing network security and improving their customers’ safety.

Private links (VLAN)

Private Interconnect (PI or PNI) enables direct traffic exchange between two networks over a dedicated VLAN on the NIX.CZ infrastructure. Members or Customers are only connected together by express mutual agreement and are only charged for the initial setup of the VLAN, with no additional install/setup fees or any recurring charges after installation of up to five VLANs.

TLD Hosting

This service provided by our exchange is primarily designed for Top Level Domain and Root Server operators to improve the quality and availability of their DNS infrastructure. The conditions and procedures vary according to the individual needs of each customer.

Partner program

NIX.CZ is interested in expanding a quality internet infrastructure built on the principles of neutral peering. For this purpose, the Partner Program was created, which makes it possible to aggregate a larger number of satisfied customers on the partner port.
