The Christchurch Internet Exchange (CHIX) is an Ethernet-based neutral peering point running on switches in Christchurch, New Zealand.

By peering at the Exchange you agree to provide routing information about your networks to other Exchange participants to optimise traffic flows across the Exchange. For more details of this agreement see the ExchangeNET Terms and Conditions

In order to participate in CHIX, you need to be attached to the CHIX switch, have a router capable of running BGP/4, an AS number and blocks of IPv4 and IPv6 numbers that are yours to route (at least a /24 of IPv4 and a /48 of IPv6).
