France IX  Optimize your interconnection

Past Events

The month of October was full of events for France IX team. It participated in NANOG 53 which gathered more than 600 American and foreign operators in Philadelphia in the USA from the 9th till the 12th of October. Afterwards, the team took part in the 19th Euro IX meeting which was held at the “cité internationale” in Lyon on the 17th and 18th of October. That gave our director, Frank Simon, the opportunity to plead the cause of the interconnections between internet exchange points during the big debate. And to close out the tour on a perfect note, France IX celebrated with its partner Lyonix, the ten years of the exchange point of Lyon on last October 20th. Congratulations to Lyonix and Rezopole! From now on as a member of France IX and Lyonix, you may, right now, explicitly apply for access to the interconnection service. More information can be found on the web page.
