LINX Seek New Peering Opportunities for Members at Polish Network Operators’ Group Meeting in Krakow

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) has announced that it is attending and presenting at PLNOG5, the fifth meeting of the Polish Network Operators' Group. The event, which attracts nearly 500 Internet professionals from around the world, is being held in Krakow, Poland, on the 21-22 October, 2010.

PLNOG is the only Polish conference dedicated entirely to telecommunication network issues. Established in 2008, it was originally part of an initiative that aimed to enable effective cooperation between the local ISP market in Poland. It is now seen as one of the most important networking events in Europe.

LINX Business Development Executive, Jennifer Atherton, said, "PLNOG provides LINX with an excellent opportunity to meet network operators, not just from Poland, but from across Europe and beyond. The Internet infrastructure in this region has developed rapidly in recent years as has the PLNOG event itself. We at LINX are always looking to broaden the routing options available for our 370 plus members so it is very important that we are here."

Polish national and LINX Senior Network Engineer, Bartek Raszczyk, will make a presentation during the peering panel session on PLNOG's second day. Bartek has also helped prepare a corporate leaflet in Polish which explains the benefits of LINX membership as well as the peering services on offer at the exchange. An electronic version of this document, and an English translation, can both be downloaded from the Join LINX page on the LINX website.


Notes to editors:

  1. LINX was formed in 1994 when five ISPs recognised that there were considerable operational benefits to exchanging traffic between their networks in the UK. From the beginning every LINX member has had an equal vote in the management of the organisation.
  2. The connection of networks at an Internet exchange point such as LINX is known as 'peering'. Network operators use public peering across the dual LINX Ethernet networks to exchange traffic with any other member by mutual agreement. LINX also offers a managed private network interconnect facility which is used for large traffic flows between two members.
  3. LINX has a presence at eleven London sites connected by secure fibre and DWDM links. The core of the network currently operates across a 12x10G Ethernet link.
  4. The Internet traffic at LINX consists of a wide variety of data including streaming media, website downloads, business information and emails. Peak LINX traffic on the public exchange is the equivalent of over 1,600,000 simultaneous Internet video streams.
