INEX is a neutral, industry-owned Association, founded in 1996, that provides IP peering facilities for its members. INEX membership is open to all organisations that can benefit from peering their IP traffic. There are currently 108 members.
Our objective is to provide high-speed, reliable and resilient IP traffic exchange facilities for both Irish and International organisations, allowing them to route IP traffic efficiently thereby providing faster, more reliable and lower-latency internet access for their customers. The INEX switching centres are located in five secure data centres around Dublin; Telecity Group in both Kilcarbery Park and Citywest Business Campus, Interxion DUB1 and Interxion DUB2 in Park West, and the Vodafone data centre in Clonshaugh. The infrastructure is connected by dedicated resilient fibre links.
INEX is a member of Euro-IX
Following its successful launch in early April, INEX Cork has been boosted further by the announcement that a new Root DNS Server instance - a critical component of supporting infrastructure on the Internet - will be hosted in Cork by INEX. Root DNS servers are used as part of the process to convert domain names (e.g.inex.ie) into their IP addresses (e.g. 192.0.2.1) and are critical to ensuring the efficient operation of the Internet.
The launch of INEX Cork will take place on Thursday, 7th April in the Clarion Hotel, Cork City. The launch will take place at 12.00 Noon and will be followed at 12.30pm by a buffet lunch. If you would like to attend the launch and mark this significant boost to Internet infrastructure in the Cork and the South West region, please contact email@example.com.
