Joining our exchange is very easy. Companies interested in connecting to the NIX.SK or NIX.SK platform can choose either a direct connection or they can take advantage of a remote connection through a partner in the Partner Program. If you are a company that meets all the eligibility criteria and you wish to establish a direct connection, please fill out the application form, based on which we will prepare the customer service agreement for you.
Any company, which is interested in connecting to the exchange (NIX.SK or/and NIX.CZ) must ensure a connection (optical) to one of the NIX.SK collocations. The demarcation point is the port in the switch at NIX.SK (the transceiver is provided by NIX.SK solely on the NIX.SK side).
If you are within the same collocation, ask your data center to cross-connect you with NIX.SK.
Connecting customers who are interested in membership of the Association may enquire about the entry conditions at email@example.com.
NIX.SK supports remote connection through partners participating in the node’s Partner Programme. If your company is interested in connecting to NIX.SK remotely, consult the list of the Partner Programme providers.
