Keith Mitchell did a clueful update on the Open-IX project at UKNOF 30
recently. This project offers a much more Eurostyle open capacity to the
US (not exclusively aimed at the US mind you) which I think could be
transformative in localising peering opportunities.


Open-IX: Beyond Year One

In its first full year of operation, the Open-IX Association has defined
2 key new open standards for Internet Exchange and Data Centre operators
to help encourage a more "European like" interconnect ecosystem in North
America, leading to the OIX certification of more than 20 locations. The
certification process has recently been opened to interested parties

This talk will report on Open-IX's model and progress to date, and
explore its relevance to peering and interconnect in Europe.
