Know More

What is LIS-IX?

LIS-IX, or Lisbon Internet eXchange, established in 2023, is designed to revolutionize the Internet exchange landscape in Portugal. As a neutral peering LAN, it facilitates direct interconnection among Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), and entities with their own Autonomous Systems in the region.

By joining LIS-IX, members can significantly reduce their operational costs and enhance internet traffic efficiency by bypassing international routes for local data exchanges. This strategic interconnection boosts speed, reduces latency, and provides a robust platform for digital communications within Portugal.
