AI is leading the digital transformation revolution and demands high-capacity, low-latency, and globally accessible interconnection solutions. Legacy Internet Exchanges (IXs), constrained by geographic limitations and proprietary vendor technologies, are struggling to keep pace with the evolving requirements of today’s data-intensive applications and changing traffic patterns. This is where Stelia IX comes in – our innovative Layer 3 peering solution leveraging the Stelia Fabric to deliver new levels of performance, scalability, and flexibility. 

Why now? The exponential growth of data traffic, fuelled by the proliferation of cloud computing, IoT, and AI-driven applications, has exposed the upper limits of traditional IXs.
