During September's highlight, the European Peering Forum in Tallin, it was announced: Together with AMS-IX and LINX, we have developed IX-API, an interface for provisioning services at Internet Exchanges. IX-API supports fully end-to-end automated processes and enables networks to order, configure, and cancel services.

We are certain that this is the future of interconnection, and we are proud to be part of developing an industry standard for network interconnection.
