On January 22nd, 2014, France-IX hosted a party to welcome 2014 in style. Over a hundred people were present to celebrate the event.

This party, sponsored by Border6 and ProLabs, was the perfect opportunity for the team to thank its members and partners for their support over the years and to wish them well in 2014.

Announcements were made about new services to be launched this year such as the marketplace.

Case study IX Reach

In 2012, France-IX launched the reseller programme, enabling operators to connect their customers to our internet exchange. Since then seven partners have joined the programme and have been contributing to the growth of France-IX by connecting new networks, often originating from far away geographically.

Because it is important to know the different types of members connected to France-IX, we publish a series of case studies highlighting the various profiles of networks.

This month, the spotlight is on IX Reach, currently the best performing reseller partner of France-IX.

Head of Marketing Ruth Plater explains why IX Reach was among the first to join the program and what she thinks the future holds for remote peering at France-IX.
