Internet Exchanges – The glue that holds the internet together

As data travels across the internet, it is constantly being re-routed and re-directed between networks. Oftentimes, traffic on one network has to switch onto a different network owned and controlled by someone else. Internet exchanges enable this kind of data transfer through a process called “peering,” which allows networks to hand off customer traffic between each other’s networks without having to pay a third party to carry it across the internet for them.
