Global Peer Exchange... a Worldwide Connectivity Platform to Exchange Internet Traffic, much like an IXP (Internet Exchange Point), just Brilliantly Global, Elegantly Flexible and Radically Priced.

Once connected to the Global Peer Exchange (GPE), any network can set up dedicated VLAN connections to any other GPE Participant, using the discovery and connection platform to find peering partners.

Connect with a Global Peer Connect (GPC) port, typically at speeds of 10Gbps and higher (LAG available). GPE is available globally on Day 1 in virtually all renowned data centers.

Imagine You Could Peer...

...With Any Network in the World, Anytime, Anywhere, at Marginal Costs and with Total Flexibility.

Ubiquitous: GPE is Everywhere, in over 1300 carrier neutral data centers, in 6 continents, 47 countries and 207 markets worldwide.

Economical: no fixed port costs (only burstable), no distance-based fees (peer with anyone else worldwide on GPE, regardless of location)

Flexible: no term commitment (month-to-month contract for GPC port, indefinite term for connections to other GPE Participants)

Any Network can join Global Peer Exchange... exchange Internet traffic – and so much more!

Whether you are an ISP, a Carrier or a Service Provider, an Online Applications / Content Provider, or even a large Corporation, as long as you run your own network with an Autonomous System Number (ASN), Global Peer Exchange is right for you.

Meet other GPE Participants on to express your interest and connect, upon the click of a button. Set up your peering session and exchange the traffic running between your networks, be it traditional Internet traffic flow, video streaming or corporate VPN traffic.
