Peer with our members via our resellers

If you are located in a data center/carrier PoP (in France, in a different country) not connected to France-IX peering platforms, you may peer remotely via our resellers.

This way you can benefit from France-IX peering without investing time and money into deploying your own infrastructure in the data centers where France-IX has deployed its network.



  • End-to-end connectivity to France-IX through one supplier: your reseller provides, manages, supports and bills the member for all the remote peering services (transport packaged with peering services).


  • One-stop-shopping means one contract, one bill, one contact so less paperwork at the end of the day. You don’t need to sign any France-IX contract, you just sign with our reseller on their paperwork and we coordinate everything with them.


  • Keep in mind that you still have full membership rights with France-IX non-profit association (with the right to vote during the France-IX meetings), you have access to the same services as any other member and you still need your own Autonomous System Number to be able to peer.

Quick and easy process

  • No deployment of hardware or colocation means you can activate your connection in a matter of days, instead of weeks.


  • Once your contract is in place with our reseller (already connected to France-IX), your can benefit from short delays for the activation of the service.


  • The variety of connection packages allows you to upgrade easily and quickly and more importantly, to stay flexible.

Zero risk with no Capex required

  • There is no need to colocate your equipment in Paris and/or Marseille, you choose your traffic level in each France-IX peering platforms (Paris and/or Marseille) through your reseller.


  • The reseller connects to France-IX though GigE, 10 Gbps peering ports, which are either dedicated or shared via multiple VLANs between customers. Keep in mind resellers can not oversubscribe their port(s).


  • The reseller provides you only with the connection and you keep the full control of your peering and routing policy.
