INEX is the internet exchange point (IXP) for the island of Ireland. It was set up as a mutual organisation 25 years ago to make connections between internet networks in Ireland more efficient, resilient and ultimately a better experience for end users.
The IXP points of presence that INEX operates exist across seven data centres in the Dublin region and INEX has a stand-alone internet exchange in Cork. INEX’s members are organisations that benefit from having excellent interconnection with other networks. They do this by passing traffic between their networks, across INEX infrastructure, in a process called ‘Peering’.
Members of INEX (over 100 currently) range from regional internet services providers around the island of Ireland, larger national and international providers of internet access services, web hosting companies and global internet content providers.
INEX is recognised around the world for its excellence in delivering IXP services. The platform INEX developed which enables the smooth running of the exchanges in Ireland, IXP Manager, is in use by over 170 IXPs around the world on a free to use (open source) basis. This has made INEX a significant force for good in the internet industry globally.
INEX is planning to enhance the current excellent team (six in total currently) by bringing onboard someone to oversee the ongoing development of marketing and community development for the association in Ireland and around the world.
The role will be a perfect match for someone who is keen to be part of a team that consistently aims to improve how things are done and deliver a better technical and community experience for our members.
