About SFINX (Service for French Internet Exchange)

The SFINX is a GIX (Global Internet eXchange), where Internet traffic is exchanged between Internet Service providers, or telecommunications carriers, with no transit and without having to use international infrastructures.

GIP RENATER runs the SFINX since 1995 and SFINX offers have evolved taking into account both the needs expressed by connected ISPs and the constraints of the business model. Today we notice that more than 90% of the ISPs choose the SFINX DIRECT service (enabling a direct connexion on the SFINX, with no hosted equipment), the HOSTED SFINX service being less adapted to the current needs. The SFINX architecture has also been changed resulting in lower interconnection costs. In this context, RENATER has decided to change its SFINX tariffs.
