PRIX - Puerto RIco Internet Exchange

  • From: Mehmet Akcin
  • Date: Tue Sep 27 12:50:12 2005


I'd like to speak with people who were / are working in IX points and/or have
knowledge about the infrastructure of IX points.

We , a small group of researchers , have started a Project called Prix [ ] which has the intentions of creating a large table for
those who would like to sit down, in other terms an internet exchange point
where all the participants can peer.

Our main goal is to improve the existing connectivity between the major backbone
providers and improve the connectivity between them with peering locally instead
of peering somewhere in the states, which is couple of thousands miles far from
Puerto Rico.

We believe improving the network connectivity of the island will definately led
those who live in Puerto Rico to think of using VoIP technologies more often.

We, myself and a friend of mine who is also participating in this project, will
be participating in NANOG and hopefully can meet with those who has experience
in order to get recommendations about hardware/software and policies.

Thank you

Mehmet Akcin, PRIX
