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

The AQ-IX is designed to support the growing peering community of communications carriers, cloud service providers and content delivery at 505 Marquette Ave.  and throughout New Mexico.

The AQ-IX can support GigE, 10GbE or 100GbE port speeds and we offers optional route server access for peering.
