Milan Neutral Access Point

MINAP is a distributed Internet Exchange Point established in 2008 in Milano in the Via Caldera 21 campus. The goal of the MINAP project is to provide fast interconnections among members at no cost in order to improve latency and redundancy while reducing transit costs. Small companies are, in fact, generally penalized by the high costs imposed by commercial Network Access Points that have monthly or yearly subscription fees.

Have a look to our points of presence section for a detailed overview of the MINAP presence.

MINAP is a managed layer 2 facility providing a peering VLAN for IPv4 and IPv6 traffic. The 24/7 support by MINAP staff enables members to receive immediate help in solving technical issues.
