DE-CIX's Research & Development team closely collaborates with five European partners to develop the next generation of Internet Exchange Points based on SDN.

The research focuses on enabling novel and innovative features for IXP customers by offering more fine-grained control and programmability of their IXP interconnection.

We contribute our know-how as an IX operator to help design new IXP features based on SDN technology. As a final result, the project will showcase the potential of an SDN-enabled IXP with a real world demonstrator, which is an essential step towards bringing this technology into production.
