Celebrating 25 years of LINX at LINX107
On the 8th November 2019 LINX mark the 25th anniversary of passing its first packet of data at Telehouse. The internet world has changed beyond all recognition since then and from those humble beginnings of just five original members, LINX now has over 890 member ASNs connected in 80 countries, exchanging over 4Tb/s of traffic on the public exchange alone.
This is something to really celebrate which is why over 250 have already signed up to our LINX107 member conference at the Park Plaza Victoria in London.
LINX107 certainly has a packed agenda. Not only will be the usual focus on LINX network updates and regulatory issues there will be reflections on the past 25 years of LINX and a farewell speech from departing CEO John Souter who retires at the end of the year. There is also an EGM where members will vote on the 2020 budget.
Other topics covered include:
- Bird Route Server project (Ondrej Filip)
- 5G (Ian Goetz)
- DDoS Protection (Stephan Braun)
- Trends in 400G Optics for the Data Center (Christian Urricariet)
- GDPR (Malcolm Hutty)
- RPKI Introduction in a Tier1 Transit Network (Jorg Dekker)
- IXPs in Asia (Philip Smith)
