Neutral and independent structure

The France-IX exchange point is built on an associative model allowing a better involvement of the connected members in the major orientations of the IXP but especially a neutrality.

Our exchange point is therefore based on an association under the French law of 1901, to which all members are de facto members, and on an SAS in charge of the operational aspects (billing, supervision, technical support).

The France-IX association is a 100% shareholder of SAS France-IX Services. As such, any important technical or financial evolution will be submitted to the approval of the members of the association.
