Welcome to the EuroGIX IXP
EuroGIX is the first cross-border exchange point between Internet key players so that they can exchange Internet flows. It is composed of physical points of presence (called EuroPOP), located in Strasbourg and soon in Kehl.
Strasbourg IXP users can improve the quality of their Internet throughput and lower Internet bandwidth costs. EuroGIX is also a NAP (Network Access Point) meaning a marketplace to sell and buy Internet transit and any type of IP service in layer 2. Strasbourg IXP is open to all users who want to connect – operators, ISPs, carriers, large companies and municipalities.
According to Cisco, the annual IP datacenter traffic will globally reach 10.4 Zb in 2019, including 8.6 Zb generated by the only Cloud services.
Roberto di Lallo, Italian computer scientist at Roma Tre University, made a research on the importance of IXPs, Internet eXchange Points and their effects on the latency of networks. IXPs are infrastructures used by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to exchange traffic between their Autonomous Systems (ASes).
Newsoo, a Usenet Service Provider is now interconnected to the EuroGIX IXP.
"Newsoo is the first Usenet service provider (USP) in France. Interconnecting us directly to the EuroGIX gives our future resellers and ISPs the possibility to seek very affordable traffic and to reinforce the regional peering. Rezopole significantly contributed to the expansion of the internet on the french soil; it is now our turn to generate traffic on this IXP" tells us Cédric Schwoerer, leader of Newsoo.
The French version of the reference book on peering by William B. Norton is now available for the french community and the Rezopole members. Rezopole's communication manager, Irina Trentea, translated the book and team members Samuel Triolet and Arnaud Fenioux have contributed with technical knowledge and feedback in order to make this manual as accurate as possible.
L'association Lorraine Data Network (LDN) s'est interconnectée sur le noeud d'échange de Strasbourg EuroGIX. "Les points d'échange locaux [...] apportent une vision du réseau qui va dans le sens des actions de Lorraine Data Network, qui a mis un point d'honneur à rejoindre le projet EuroGIX. » déclare Julien VAUBOURG président de LDN.
