Increase your network performance by joining the Denver Internet Exchange
Denver IX is the premier, ultra-low latency internet exchange serving the peering needs of the Denver metro area. We aim to reduce latency, increase speeds, and ensure network resiliency among our member networks. Reduce your network's IP transit costs by exchanging traffic locally over the Denver Internet Exchange.
Peaktera provides enterprise internet services within the Denver metro area including cloud services, dedicated servers, colocation, and IP transit (which can be delivered over the Denver IX Fabric).
Mean Servers Limited
Mean Servers Limited provides SMBs with web hosting solutions including both managed and unmanaged hosting, virtual private servers, dedicated servers, and other hosting related services.
Check to see if you are located in one of our on-net data centers, Cyxtera DEN1, or one of our expansion locations coming soon. If you are not located in one of our on-net facilities, not a problem, you can connect to us via dark fiber, metro ethernet, or any other suitable media at any on-net facility. Contact us for a list of recommended 3rd party vendors.
Our Technical Documents
Be sure to review our various technical documents available on our website, including our price list. This ensures the Denver Internet Exchange is the right fit and you meet our minimum requirements, mainly having a public ASN and public IP space (IPv4, IPv6, or both).
When you are ready, submit an application for membership. One of our engineers will reach out to you within 1 business day to discuss any questions you may have, timeframes, and finalize the details of your membership.
Upon approval of your membership application, we will send you your first invoice. Once paid, we will send you your port connection details and set a provisioning date for your services, the date you can expect services to be ready on our end. We can set this date further out if you aren't ready to cross-connect into our fabric just yet. Future invoices will be due based off the provisioning date and not your first invoice payment date.
On provisioning date, your port will be turned up on our end. You will be expected to begin peering with our route collector (mandatory) and if you choose to, our route servers (optional but highly recommended). Your services will be placed on our quarantine LAN for 24 hours to make sure everything is functioning as it should. After 24 hours, you will be switched over to our peering LAN where you can begin peering with other members on the peering fabric and exchange traffic.
Frequently Asked Questions
We offer discounts when paying on terms equal to or greater than a year to all members, not just non-profits, start-ups and government entities. Contact us for further details.
Unfortunately, no. One of the few minimum requirements is that you have a Regional Internet Registry (RIR) assigned ASN and RIR assigned IP space.
I would like to join the Denver Internet Exchange but you are not at my location. What are my options?
Not a problem, you can still join the Denver Internet Exchange by utilizing one of our 3rd party vendors to reach us via dark fiber, metro ethernet, or other suitable private transport method and cross-connect into our peering fabric. Alternatively, we are regularly expanding our footprint in Denver as demand is justified. Let us know your interest and your location, we will let you know when we expand to your preferred connection point.
Denver IX does not offer IP transit but many of our members do (we can send you a providers list). Feel free to contact these providers and they would be happy to explain the process. You will need an assigned private VLAN which can be provisioned within 1 business day upon ordering.
I am a service provider and would like to sell our products to interested members. How can this be accomplished?
We welcome additional service providers to our peering fabric, in fact this is why we offer private VLANs on the fabric, to enable additional value-added services such as those provided by service providers. The only requirement is you are already connected via a port on our peering fabric. Enabling a private VLAN between you and your customer can be completed in 1 business day. This allows the exchange of traffic that might be outside the scope of a traditional peering agreement such as accessing protected resources or IP transit.
