The Open-IX Association is a non-profit, neutral body of Internet community volunteers that creates standards for connectivity, resiliency, security and cost in North America. Their goal is to encourage the creation and development of Internet exchanges with governed standards of performance and promoting common and uniform specifications for data transfer and physical connectivity. Additionally, Open-IX seeks to improve IX performance by developing criteria and methods of measurement to reduce the complexity that restricts interconnection in fragmented markets. The Open-IX certification improves reliability in a cost-efficient way while creating an organized and deliberate method to foster change efficiently, rapidly and in partnership with the data center and IX community.
