Luxembourg Internet Exchange
LU-CIX was founded in 2009 out of a cross-industry initiative set up by major national and international Internet players with the aim of developing the Internet and supporting the Internet community in Luxembourg.
Who are we?
LU-CIX ASBL, the LUxembourg Internet eXchange, was founded in 2009 based on a not-for-profit membership association with an open and neutral philosophy. Its aim is to develop and support the Internet and data center ecosystem in Luxembourg by providing the national peering infrastructure and by promoting the national and European ICT community.
LU-CIX brings a major contribution to the Luxembourg Internet community by organising its leading industry event, the Luxembourg Internet Days, which takes place every year and attracts over a thousand industry experts and decision makers from all around the globe.
LU-CIX also runs the datacenters-in-europe.com platform, which gathers the Luxembourg data center and Internet related players to promote Luxembourg as the best place for a data center and ICT business in the heart of Europe.
LU-CIX GIE was also launched in 2009 to operate the Internet eXchange infrastructure. In 2021, the Luxembourgish State, together with LU-CIX GIE, launched MyConnectivity G.I.E. to support the access to high performance connectivity for all (private households and businesses) in the context of the 5G and ultra-high-speed national strategies.
LU-CIX permits the various Internet service providers to exchange Internet traffic between their networks, and thus directly connect the content providers and international Internet operators located in Luxembourg.
Located at the crossroads of traditional European Internet traffic routes and thanks to its proximity to other Internet hubs such as Frankfurt, Amsterdam and London, LU-CIX can be your prime connection to other networks or you can connect to LU-CIX for redundancy reasons, (i.e. to avoid traditional trans-European Internet paths).
In any case, connecting through LU-CIX is choosing the shortest, fastest and thus most efficient route to the major European Internet networks.
Through its financial support from the government of the Grand Duchy and as a core part of the Digital Lëtzebuerg initiative, LU-CIX can guarantee a high network stability level.
Through LU-CIX, companies generating IP traffic and attracted to Luxembourg by the favorable economic environment, are in a position to find all the means and tools to carry their traffic to all Internet users around the world.
