Timico is a member of LINX, or the London Internet Exchange. Linx is a not for profit meeting point in London where ISPs and network operators meet to peer their traffic, ie to share their connectivity with one another.
It is a sign of the pace of growth in internet related activity that membership of LINX rose in 2008 to 308, up by around 20% from the previous year. The peak traffic carried over the LINX network is over 400Gbps which is a lot of ADSL connections.
The LINX meetings are not only good networking opportunities but a great place to keep up with developments in internet technology. This week the subject matter includes at IPv6, DNS security and SPAM. LINX64 is sponsored by Telehouse.
I’ll post any useful material as it happens.
