Packet Clearing House is a non-profit research institute supporting investigation and operations in the area of Internet traffic exchange and global IP routing economics.
PCH was formed in 1994 to provide high-performance regional and local peering alternatives to the CIX and the MAE, and has grown to become the leading proponent of neutral independent peering switch-fabrics and the leading provider of free route-servers at major exchange points around the world.
Today, PCH provides knowledge, equipment, and operational support to organizations and individual researchers seeking to improve the quality, robustness, and accessibility of the Internet.
