Who we are

AMS-IX is a neutral member-based association that operates multiple interconnection platforms around the world. Our leading platform in Amsterdam has been playing a crucial role at the core of the internet for nearly 30 years and is one of the largest hubs for internet traffic in the world. Connecting to AMS-IX ensures customers such as internet service providers, telecom companies and cloud providers that their global IP traffic is routed in an efficient, fast, secure, stable and cost-effective way. This allows them to offer low latency and engaging online experiences for end-users.

Our story

AMS-IX stands for Amsterdam Internet Exchange. Amsterdam is where it all started, over 25 years ago. Since then, we grew to global leadership, expanding our footprint and service offerings to other locations worldwide. Even though we operate internationally today, we'll never forget where we come from: AMS-IX is our birth name and we wear it with pride.
