NIX.SK – Neutral Internet eXchange for the Slovakia and Beyond!

NIX.SK is an independent peering node operated by the NIX.CZ Association since 2015. NIX.SK associates Slovak, and foreign Internet related businesses in order to mutually interconnect their networks. Access to the infrastructure of NIX.SK is enabled through two collocations in Bratislava.

Currently, NIX.SK is the only IXP in Slovakia, which enables connection into two geographically detached locations. NIX.SK encourages and facilitates the IPv6 protocol and was the first IXP to offer route server services in Slovakia. Consistent and meticulous planning, sophisticated technical solutions and a 24/7/365 technical support have led to a failure-free operation of the node.

NIX.SK is a subsidiary of NIX.CZ, a dynamic company, which actively participates in the development of the Internet. Through General Meetings, working groups and social events NIX.CZ enables its members and customers to meet, not as competitors but as allies, cooperating on the future of the association.

The FENIX project was created by the Czech peering node NIX.CZ and is primarily a reaction to intense DoS attacks targeting Czech internet services, media, banks and operators in March 2013. The purpose of the project is to ensure the availability of Internet services of the connected entities during a DoS attacks. 

A participation in the project is subject to a number of conditions set in the Terms which must be fulfilled by each company wishing to join the project. The project is designed for companies offering connectivity to significant services that have to be secured even at the most critical moments.

The form of the FENIX project in Slovakia will be disclosed after negotiations with Slovak security authorities and the operator community.

A short clip on how Internet exchange nodes work

NIX Video

This short video sheds light on the mysteries of how the Internet works and explains the key roles of Internet exchange nodes. Through peering, that is through linking of autonomous systems, the Internet develops. This video was made in a cooperation with EURO-IX and its goal is to present the key role of the Internet exchanges such as NIX.SK.

Network Topology

Topology NIXSK

Using our extensive experience with the Prague Peering Exchange, we have selected Cisco Nexus 7010 for the launch of the NIX.SK node .With this hardware profile the switches are located in two detached locations and are configured to be fully redundant. The interconnection of the switches is ensured by two independent routes each with double the desired capacity, so that failure of one of the routes does not affect the operation of the connection node.
