FRANCE-IX OFFICIALLY NAMED GROWTH CHAMPION

As we announced last month, we won the challenge together of joining the annual ranking of the 500 Growth Champions in France, published by the French business daily Les Echos and the Statista institute, which honours companies who achieved outstanding growth performances during the 2014-2017 period. 

Final result: France-IX ranked 353th in the list, among companies from all industries and from all regions of France. This reward belongs to the whole France-IX community. We hope this makes you as proud as it makes us!

Congratulations to our members (Adista, Eurafibre, HISI, Outscale, Pacwan, Sewan and Via Numerica) who also shine in the ranking.

EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT FRANCE-IX, AND MORE!

France-IX is expanding its support materials, with the aim of always providing greater help to its community of members and future members. 

We have been committed to developing a brand new Frequently Asked Questions section that gathers all the questions you may have at different stages of your relationship with France-IX. Whether you are an existing member and wish to refresh your knowledge (information about your connection, pricing evolutions, traffic exchange…) or interested in the many advantages of peering at France-IX and are keen to learn more, you will probably find the answer to your question in those new FAQs. 

Moreover, the invoicing section in the FAQs integrates another new resource: “Read My Bill”. It is a PDF document that can be viewed and/or downloaded online, to give you a clear understanding of France-IX’s invoices.

FRANCE-IX GATHERS THE ECOSYSTEM’S PLAYERS WITH ITS “JEUDIS DU PEERING”

We have the pleasure to launch the Jeudis du Peering (Peering Thursdays), a brand new concept of events held by France-IX and intended for the different actors of our ecosystem. With a great emphasis on exchanges and conviviality, these half-day events will take place in Paris and Marseille and will gather our members, future members and partners, allowing them to meet and share their experiences. The Jeudis du Peering come in response to the growing demand from our members to have regular, human-sized events that foster exchanges within the community, in addition to our annual General Meeting. 

The very first session will be held (in French) on Thursday 28 March in Paris, in France-IX’s offices (8th district) and will be focused on training. The agenda includes an introduction to peering, a case study, best practices, not to mention some moments exclusively dedicated to networking with a closing cocktail. If you are fluent in French, we hope to welcome you for this first gathering.

FRANCE-IX 2019 GENERAL MEETING: SAVE-THE-DATE AND CALL FOR SPEAKERS 

The date of our next annual General Meeting has been set! This will be held on Friday 20 September 2019 at the Centre d’Affaires Paris Trocadéro (Paris 16th district), a venue that we enjoyed all together last year. 

As every year, the event will run over a full day, which will be marked by the vote for the Board members and for the closure of the company’s financial accounts, by presentations from speakers who represent the full ecosystem diversity, and will end with a closure cocktail plus a Beer event nearby, for those who want to extend the evening. 

In 2018, no less than 18 contributors participated with 12 presentations and 12 panels. We are launching today a call for speakers in order to succeed them and contribute to the success of our 2019 GM! To be part of the agenda, contact us now:
