Lightning Talks


Mr Nat Morris (UKNOF/Esgob)


Back in October 2013 a group of interested individuals met at the Millenium Center in Cardiff to discuss the possibility of starting a Welsh IXP. Plans developed and LINX along with Cardiff City Council and the DCMS discussed opening an exchange within BT Stadium House. Independently of LINX, the local city council offered grants of up to 20k to connect to the exchange, this was intended to cover the costs of routers and associated PoP build out fees. Currently only 2 of the 21 IXCardiff members ASNs existed prior to the grant being announced. This talk will highlight: - traffic levels - number of ASNs behind the same 2 local transit providers - prefixes shared on the same LIR - members with the same registered limited companies directors - how throwing money at a problem does not fix it 15 minutes, this is with my ESGOB Ltd hat on.
