Virtual Peering Series – Central Asia #1

Strong communities make a strong Internet. Thank you for joining the first event of the Virtual Peering Series – Central Asia!

The Internet Society, RIPE NCC, and Euro-IX organized a series of online events throughout 2021 to raise awareness of the benefits of peering and encourage the development of Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) in the region.

The Virtual Peering Series – Central Asia introduced the benefits of IXPs, brought together network operators, content providers, and DNS operators who were interested in improving the Internet in their countries and localities, and developed plans for establishing and/or operating an IXP. It also discussed IXP best practices, including technical solutions as well as hosting, financing, and staff resourcing, with the aim of developing suitable approaches for local circumstances.

The first event in the series took place on 11 May 2021 at 09.00-10.30 UTC. The language of these events was Russian, with simultaneous translation provided in English.
