Danish Internet Exchange Point (DIX) is operated by i2 in Kongens Lyngby north of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. Two points of presence were opened since 2011.

Its purpose is to alleviate the exchange of data traffic between networks that constitute the Danish part of the global Internet structure. The DIX was established in May 1994 and has most of the Danish Internet service providers connected.


The DIX offers two options to connect to the neutral net:

  • Switched 1000Mbit Gigabit Ethernet. The member must use a 1G-LX singlemode optical module.
  • Switched 10000Mbit 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The member must use a 10G-LR singlemode optical module.
