Virtual Peering Series – Central Asia #7: Beyond Peering

The seventh Virtual Peering Series—Central Asia took place on 19 July 2022 at 09.00-10.30 UTC (14.00-15.30) in Western Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan (15.00-16.30 in Eastern Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan).

Central Asian countries are landlocked with limited options to connect to the Internet, and recent events have focused attention on the importance of local peering to reduce reliance on external services. This event focused on how to provision an Internet exchange point (IXP) and the challenges of doing so. It also highlighted what services (for example, ServiceDB) are available to support your IXP.

Along with speakers from Euro-IX and NAP Africa, there were also perspectives from IXPs established in the Eurasian region, including Georgian IX (GIX), represented by Ucha Seturi, Armenian IX (ARMIX), represented by Albert Toneyan, and Kazakhstan IX (KazNIX), represented by Pavel Gussev.

The language of the event was Russian, with simultaneous interpretation in English.

This event was organized by the Internet Society, RIPE NCC, and Euro-IX, and supported by Flexoptix, Meta and NAMEX.
