Beyond Peering

The second session in the Virtual peering Series – Africa examined how to go ‘beyond peering’.

Led by LINX, this session presented the evolution of IXPs from pure peering locations to much more of a universal interconnection point. Mike Hellers, Product Development Manager for LINX talked about how they are evolving their services to reflect this.

The session also collaborated with Hurricane Electric and Epsilon to provide further insight into the evolving world of Peering including a live technical demo of the new IX API software.

Organized by the African IXP Association and the Internet Society, The Virtual Peering Series – Africa is a collection of online events that will highlight and analyze key issues and recent developments in Africa’s Internet ecosystem. The Series has been developed by the AfPIF Program Committee and event organizers.
