LINX64

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.

  1. Thanks for the comment. IPv6 ended up as just an announcement of a LINX workshop at 10am in Goodenough College in London on 13th March. If you want to go you can mail them at [email protected].

    The DNSSEC talk showed that we probably need to implement it. However when polled there was noone in the audience actually planning on doing it. I suspect it will be a “next year” thing.
