We show that the 2$,times ,$2$,times ,$2 interference network, i.e., the multihop interference network formed by concatenation of two two-user interference channels achieves the min-cut outer bound value of 2 DoF, for almost all values of channel coefficients, for both time-varying or fixed-channel coefficients. The key to this result is a new idea, called aligned interference neutralization, that provides a way to align interference terms over each hop in a manner that allows them to be canceled over the air at the last hop.
