The First Public Internet Exchange Point in Ethiopia.

ADDIX is currently operational as a sand-boxed Internet Exchange Point (IXP) under the supervision and guidance of the Ethiopian Communications Authority (ECA)

Internet Exchange

An Internet Exchange Point (IXP) is a physical network infrastructure that allows multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to exchange traffic with each other. By connecting to an IXP, ISPs can reduce the cost of exchanging traffic with other networks and provide more reliable service to their customers. Furthermore, IXPs can also provide a platform for ISPs to share content, such as local news or entertainment, with their customers. Ultimately, IXPs are an important part of any robust, modern internet infrastructure and can help improve the overall quality and reliability of the internet.

How ADDIX Membership Works

ADDIX has open membership policy to its Internet exchange Point. Any ISP, telecom operator, content provider, enterprise, educational institution, or government institution can be a member of ADDIX IXP. All IXP members are treated equally. As  ADDIX is not a profit-oriented company, it can provide the best possible value to its members.
