Business case for IXPs why are they useful as businesses?

  1. 1. 2013-04-29 ATI workshop on Internet Exchange Points, Tunis Arnold Nipper, CTO/COO and Founder arnold.nipper@de-cix.net Business case for IXPs why are they useful as businesses?
  2. 2. • What is an IXP? • Why do IXPs exist? • IXP as a market place • IXP as a focal point for telecommunication industry • How to market an IXP #3
  3. 3. • A network infrastructure with the purpose to facilitate the exchange of Internet traffic between Autonomous Systems and operating below layer 3 • At least three or more members/customers connected • (provides a members/customers list and traffic stats) • What else? What is an IXP? #4
  4. 4. • The Internet was strictly hierarchically until early 1990‘s – Packets between networks had to cross the NSF backbone – Expensive and non performant • BGP allows for arbitrary topologies – First version (RFC1163) from 1991 – Networks may interconnect at any level – The Internet is flat – Hierarchy only in terms of providers (Tier 1, Tier 2) Why do IXPs exist? #5
  5. 5. • Networks have to interconnect somehow • Interconnecting at dedicated places creates synergies – The more networks, the greater the synergy – Allows for higher capacity into the interconnect point – Minimizes the number of interconnect points • Direct interconnect – Gives you full control over your packets – Saves costs (at least if you have enough data) Why do IXPs exist? #6
  6. 6. • Most often IXP are associated with peering only • According to the definition it‘s a place to „exchange“ Internet traffic. This might be – Peering – Upstream / Downstream – … • The IXP gear has to be located somewhere  Colocation – Lots of other service around IXP as a market place #7
  7. 7. • Where to place a (new) IXP? – Where fibre landing stations are? – Where financial hubs are? – Where lots of people are? – ??? • Once established, IXP form some sort of gravity – Telecommunication circuits are „sticky“ – The more there are, the more will come IXP as a focal point for telecommunication industry #8
  8. 8. • Locally – try to span your IXP across all relevant colocations – Talk to ISPs, colocation, business development for your town/area • Region – Attend *nog, RIR meetings – Become a member of your IXP association • Generally – Do a SWAT analysis – Develop a clear strategy How to market an IXP #9
