Overview


The generic Internet Exchange Point pitch …

Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) are a good idea

Peering is a good idea

Local regional self-reliance is a good idea

Critical services (DNS, NTP, etc) are a good idea

The Internet is not going away; in fact it’s growing
The global Internet Exchange Point pitch …

Every IXP (regional, national or international) has improved Internet services locally

IXPs get cities (or regions) onto the mindset map when it comes to telecom infrastructure builds

Some networks (especially networks like ours) actively look for peering exchanges as a sign of mature cities

A quick reminder – how routing works

Technically – it’s a very complex subject





Robustness can be created




The Internet is a collection of networks
No network stands alone
Interconnections are required
Efficient interconnections are requried
Multi-homing (more than one transit)
Peering between “like” networks helps
Diversity (physical & logical) really helps
Nothing is static!

Why peering helps grow the local IP market

Report Takeaway …



Peering improves traffic flows and reduces costs




Peering and IXPs work (this is obvious)
Very good results with little regulation
Traffic flowing with less hops or latency is more efficient
Networks that peer can reduce transit expenditure
Networks that peer see local content or local eyeballs easier
Peering reduces transit revenue from major players



27 March
2013
Reduced revenue is a short term effect (but it’s there)
As customer experience improves; network dependence grows
Peering never replaces 100% of transit needs
