Internet exchange points (IXPs) are a key part of the Internet's infrastructure which provide a physical location that facilitate the exchange of Internet traffic between different networks. This allows networks to connect directly to each other, rather than through a third-parties networks, enabling local traffic to be exchanged locally, rather than internationally, as can often be the case when networks exchange local traffic via upstream providers. This enables a reduction in costs while improving latency and bandwidth.
