Main Session


Mr John Souter (LINX)


An update on LINX's UK regional peering strategy, where we are today and our plans for the future. I'll also give some thoughts on what might be achievable in Northern Ireland/Belfast, based on our current experience developing an exchange in Cardiff.


  • realisation that LINX needed to do something about peering outside of London
  • support from the membership for this idea
  • development of IXManchester and IXScotland
  • latest development: IXCardiff
  • speculation about the future
  • difficulties faced & lessons learnt
  • what everyone could do to make this vision practical...
