NL en Globe On March 1, 2002, the former chairman of the executive board of the Amsterdam Internet Exchange, Jan Hoogenboom, announced the birth of a 2nd Netherlands-based Internet Exchange called “NL-ix”.

Beside providing current AMS-IX participants an alternative or backup connection, the new exchange aimed to serve additional market segments by offering additional services, wider coverage, specific support, and dedicated community solutions.

On March 1, 2011, KPN acquired NL-ix, and NL-ix continues to operate as a fully autonomous organization with it's own identity, as an independent part of KPN Wholesale.

NL-ix is specialized in Internet Exchange services, 'Mission Critical Internet' solutions, and services in and between Carrier Neutral datacenters.
