What is the definition of a "Tier 1 Internet Exchange Point" ?

There is no formal useful definition for a Tier 1 IXP.

I have only heard of a "Tier 1 IXP" once and then it was related to a lawsuit. The term never seemed to take.

In each Internet Peering Ecosystem there are one or more dominant IXPs - the ones that everyone connects to because everyone interesting is already there.
