IXScotland 1

27th - 28th Mar 2013

LINX staged a meeting to discuss the opportunities of regional peering in Scotland. The event took place on Wednesday 27th March 2013 at Edinburgh Conference Centre at Herriot Watt University and ran from 1pm - 5.00pm, followed by a post-event social. The purpose of the meetingwas to gauge interest of existing LINX members, as well as those not already peering in either London or Manchester, in establishing a peering point or points in Scotland.

LINX launched its first regional peering point in Manchester and are planning to establish more in a number of other regions where there is significant Internet traffic. This is therefore be an excellent opportunity to hear about those future plans but also a chance to network with other interested parties.

Presentations

Presentations in PDF format are released here for LINX members when the presentation starts at the LINX meeting.
Videos of the presentations are released here for LINX members a number of days after the meeting.
