Welcome To Sudan Internet Exchange Point (SIXP)
An Internet exchange point (IX or IXP) is a physical infrastructure through which Sudan Internet Service Providers (ISPs)
exchange Internet traffic between their networks (autonomous systems).
IXPs reduce the portion of an ISP's traffic which must be delivered via their upstream transit providers,
thereby reducing the average per-bit delivery cost of their service. Furthermore, the increased number of paths
learned through the IXP improves routing efficiency and fault-tolerance.
The following are the current members (ISPs) of SIXP:
Sudatel, Canar, Zain, MTN, Vision Valley, Sudanese Universities Information Network (SUIN)&
Packet Clearing House (PCH).
