We can’t wait to see you at the France-IX General Meeting

We hope to see you again and to meet our new members during the France-IX annual event on Friday, September 29 at the Crowne Plaza Republique in Paris.

Members, resellers: you are all members of the France-IX association. The association needs to hear from you to always move forward, needs your approval to close the financial accounts and your vote to choose the next board committee so that we keep going in the right direction. A quorum of 25% of participants is required to validate the vote, so that we really count on you to attend either physically or vote remotely!

This event is also a unique opportunity during the year to meet your peers in person, to get up-to-date on France-IX recent developments and more generally to on the interconnection industry. This year, we have unique and diverse speakers from Kentik, Brocade, Interxion, Google, ARCEP, BICS, TOP-IX and LINX.

Thanks to all our sponsors for helping us organizing this meeting in the best conditions. Proud to welcome Platinum sponsor Kentik, Gold sponsor Brocade, Silver sponsor Telehouse, Cocktail sponsor Interxion and 2 Coffee Break sponsors PureOptics and Coriant.

Members list improvementsX

To facilitate the reading and sorting of France-IX members list, a new field has been introduced: the peering policy of each network. The policy of a member is either unknown (empty field), open, selective, restrictive or marketplace (paid service to a vendor connected to France-IX).

 

You now have the ability to sort using all the available fields: AS number, PoP, subscribed capacity, peering policy, IP address, contact and presence on the route servers.

 

We would love to hear your ideas, comments and suggestions on the members list!
