When & Where
TOP-IX (TOrino Piemonte Internet eXchange) is a non-profit consortium set up in 2002 with the aim of creating and managing a NAP (Neutral Access Point, otherwise known as Internet Exchange - IX) for the exchange of Internet traffic in North West Italy.
TOP-IX objectives are integrated with WI-PIE (www.wi-pie.org) program guidelines promoted and supported by the Piedmont Regional Administration for the diffusion of broadband throughout the Piedmont region. TOP-IX is one of the program actuators. All Consortium lines of action (Internet Exchange, Development Program and involvement in the WI-PIE program) act in synergy to promote growth throughout the territory.
The Development Program (DP) was set up in 2006 to diffuse the use of broadband Internet and to foster innovation by providing support to early stage Internet ventures.
