Boston Internet Exchange
|Full name||Boston Internet Exchange|
|Location||United States, Boston, Massachusetts, US|
The Boston Internet Exchange is an Internet Exchange Point in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The Boston IX is owned and operated by Markley Group, hosted in Markley's One Summer Street, Boston datacenter and their Prince Avenue, Lowell datacenter.
The exchange point supports IPv4 and IPv6 unicast peering, as well as private virtual network interconnects.
Some consider the Boston IX to be the successor of the now defunct Boston MXP started by MAI.net and Vincent Bono. Initially in 2007, Barton Bruce from Global NAPs and TowardEX Technologies had planned to replace the aging Boston MXP due to Global NAPs closing down its business. Unfortunately, that did not come to pass.
