RIPE 76: WE MADE HISTORY TOGETHER

RIPE 76, which was held in Marseille from 14 to 18 May 2018, was an event that broke all records. As a co-host, we felt honoured to help the RIPE NCC and proud to have contributed to the biggest RIPE meeting in history.

Record number of total attendees (737 coming from 57 countries), record number of first time attendees (200), record number of French attendees (104 attendees, representing 14% of the audience and the 2nd largest country represented, i.e. a 1400% growth in term of French attendance compared to the previous RIPE meeting), record number of meetings organized through the RIPE Networking App (1383)… We made history together to represent the Internet community in France. A big thanks to all of you who have joined and supported us in this adventure. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. 

A RIPE meeting would not be such without the many technical insights it shares. Conferences, workshops or group sessions were as many opportunities to initiate the discussion on key topics that are marking the Internet industry today. Our CTO Simon Muyal has summarised these topics and trends in our blog for you.

FRANCE-IX ACCELERATES ITS GROWTH IN MARSEILLE

France-IX has taken an important step in its growth in Marseille by inaugurating a third point of presence (PoP) in Interxion’s new MRS2 datacenter. France-IX thus increases resilience and meets anticipated growth in interconnection demand, in the second international network hub in France.

Since opening its first PoP at Interxion MRS1 in 2013, followed by its second at the Jaguar Network MRS01 datacenter in 2015, the France-IX Marseille community has grown by 20 percent per year on average, with a number of members more than doubling, and a 130 Gbps peak in traffic recorded in the first quarter of 2018.
