What is CL-IX?

The CL-IX was established in 2020 as a neutral Internet exchange at H5 Data Centers’ downtown Cleveland data center campus. Our mission is to facilitate the peering of domestic and international Internet traffic in Cleveland and Ohio generally.

The CL-IX is designed to support the growing peering community of communications carriers, cloud service providers and content delivery networks at 1625 Rockwell Ave. and throughout the state of Ohio.

The CL-IX can support 1G, 10G or 100G port speeds and we offer optional route server access for peering.



The above prices include the cross connection costs from the point of presence (POP) within an H5 Data Centers colocation area or the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) within the Meet-Me Room at 1625 Rockwell Ave. to the CL-IX exchange. If you would like to peer on the CL-IX, please email us at

PROMOTION!

To be eligible, a peering participate must update their presence on PeeringDB.
