Meet Tampnet at European Peering Forum 2019 (16-18.09)

July 1, 2019

Tampnet’s Chief Architect, Eirik Eilertsen will attend this conference.

AMS-IX, DE-CIX, LINX, NETNOD and NIX-CZ, are happy to host the 14th European Peering Forum (EPF) in Tallinn, Estonia from the 16th till the 18th of September 2019. The event will welcome up to 300 peering managers and coordinators from networks connected to the host Internet exchanges. Besides an interesting topical agenda, the three-day event accommodates room for attendees to meet on a one-to-one basis to discuss bilateral peering business opportunities.

The primary goal for peering forums is to attract members and potential members of exchange points to an event where there are both educational sessions and opportunities to interact with other members” – Jay Adelson, Equinix, 2005. The above quote is taken from a meeting which took place in London in 2005 which included a number of Internet Exchanges. The purpose of this meeting was to discuss the coordination of peering forums.

It signalled the birth of both the Global Peering Forum (GPF) and European Peering Forum (EPF). This quote summarizes the main focus of the peering forums; to provide the peering community with a fruitful event that enables them to successfully establish new peers, and extend existing peering arrangements as well as sharing information and experience beneficial to the whole peering community.
