Peering is a cost neutral arrangement between two Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to exchange Internet traffic. It is undertaken to reduce costs and provide more direct routing of that traffic.
Attendees of the event will be treated to a packed agenda with many topics of interest to those present over the two days.
Many leading Industry players will be making presentations to the peering community including Martin McDermott, of Cable & Wireless who will cover the European peering landscape and Jan Paul Dekker of RTL who will talk about peering experiences from a broadcasters perspective and why it makes sense.
Martin McDermott said: “The European Peering Forum is a marvellous opportunity for those in the Industry to come together to discuss ideas and plans for the future. It’s great to be involved. ”
Jan Paul Dekker added: “As a broadcaster focused on delivering content in Europe, this forum provides an invaluable opportunity to share experiences and meet colleagues in other organisations with whom we already do business or hope to do business in the future.”
Day two features in depth presentations on ISP system and Route Server developments, the Television without Frontiers EU directive, content delivery, 10GE experiences and operational issues. Serge Radovcic of Euro-IX will also provide an update on European market statistics.
