  • QoS France-IX
  • Providing a professional level of Quality of Service (QoS) to all its members has always been part of France-IX's DNA. Achieving the highest QoS by managing the delay, delay variation (jitter), frame loss and service availability parameters on France-IX infrastructure is the secret to a successful peering experience. Adding objectives on provisioning, move and change now defines the path to a successful member experience.


    This QoS section sets out the service levels for all services supplied by France-IX under the General Conditions of its Connection Agreement for the provision of peering services. It gathers all the resources, processes and objectives surrounding these services, aiming to guarantee the highest quality to its communities in Paris and Marseille.
