  7. 7. Why IXP • Goal #1: Keep local traffic local with Peering: less Latency for end users, more services on the Net • Goal #2 create an Interconnection point where ISP can cooperate AND compete (coopetition) where Transit providers compete (lower Transit fees) and where attract Content Giants eager to Peer domenica 28 aprile 13
  8. 8. IXP Model • Better Not For Profit (the ‘EU’ way) • Even in Regions where historically IX is a Service, this is often offered as/from a Separate Entity which acts as a Neutral Advisor/Facilitator/Broker • A Consortium with a Limited as Operations arm is possibly the best choice domenica 28 aprile 13
  9. 9. Interconnecting IXP • IMHO, the Internet is best if made by ISPs interconnected at IXP. • However, Interconnecting IXPs makes sense to aggregate traffic in regions and sustain small players • If Carrier Neutral datacenters are missing is a good way to reach Content Giants too as a tactical step domenica 28 aprile 13
