For many, the internet connection on your laptop is the same as the one you use for calling or streaming on your smartphone. Essentially, that is true. However, when you dial a number or start a stream on your smartphone, it might take a different route. Chances are that your call or stream goes over the AMS-IX Mobile Peering platform. Let's take a closer look at that.
The concept of peering is settlement-free exchange of internet traffic between networks. This also applies to Mobile Network Operators (MNO's) who handle the traffic of your smartphone. Above those is a third layer: the Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) providers, who want to work the same way.
Our Mobile Peering platform connects these IPX providers and their respective customers (MNO's) to each other, enabling them to exchange traffic with each other. The service level agreements connected to the ports they use will ensure the quality as well as compliance with the Global System for Mobile Communications Association (GSMA) requirements.
