Definition Edit

The Commercial Internet Exchange (CIX) was the initial effort for creating the commercial Internet that we know today.

Overview Edit

Its goal was to have an independent interconnection point with no U.S. government-defined "acceptable use policy" on the traffic that could flow; just as critical, was the "no-settlement" policy that was to exist between the parties. This no-settlement policy which has been an assumed "given" throughout the modern era of the Internet was immensely controversial at this point in time.
