The OIX-1 standards encompass physical, operational and open access requirements including interconnection policies, Service Level Agreements (SLAs), up-time guarantees and more.
The goal of the standard is to capture the critical aspects necessary to support the mission-critical applications and massive scale interconnection.
A second task of the IXP Standards Committee is to evaluate IXP requests for certification against the OIX-1 standards.
All OIX Committees are comprised of volunteer representatives from the Global Internet community who are coming together to create a better, safer, stronger, fairer Internet. The expected weekly time commitment for task completion is 1-2 hours per week. It is asked that volunteers for this committee commit to a one-year term.
