“The third largest IXP in Hurricane Electric FMT2!”
The FCIX is a free community-run Internet Exchange which was originally set up to reduce the number of needed cross-connects between a group of friends in the Hurricane Electric FMT2 colo facility, but has quickly grown to include other networks.
FCIX runs on a pair of Arista DCS-7050S-64 generously donated by Arista.
- April, 2018 - IXP founded as a VLAN on PhirePhly Design’s Cisco 6506
- July, 2018 - Migration onto Arista 7050S-64, AS33495, and dedicated FCIX address space.
- January, 2019 - Second POP in HE FMT1 and dark fiber back to FMT2 lit.
