Historically, transit savings have been sufficient incentive for IX participation. Recently, transit price erosion has given rise to potential convergence of transit and IX per unit traffic costs. Interviews with IX managers and participants tell a more nuanced story: there is substantive value in the opportunities to identify unique interconnection partners and redundancy. A number of hypotheses where formulated based on this framework, taking these together,
This presentation is less about telling and more about validating the framework and hypotheses. The presentation will be designed to be a frank dialog on the state of the interconnection industry write large, the evolving value and role of IXes, and IX value in developing regions such as Africa and South America. As a researcher, the presenter welcomes constructive critiques of the framework and assumptions. The end of the presentation will elicit suggestions for case studies of IX participants, those that are new to the IX world as well as success (and failure) stories.
Many IXPs are facing the same challenges, such as de-peering and falling transit prices. What can all IXPs learn from those who have faced these challenges before? Is it possible to mitigate the effects of some challenges or maybe even avoid them completely?

Barry O'Donovan Dublin , Ireland
If you want to confuse Barry, ask him where he’s from: born in Cork, spent his formative years in Galway and married into Dublin. He got a honours degree in Maths, his first love, from NUI, Galway in 2001 and went on to do four years research in information theory in UCD’s Computer Science department.
It was 2008 when Nick Hilliard, INEX’s CTO, approached Barry to provide a couple days operational support to INEX. Little did Barry realise what a huge part of his life INEX would become – both here in Ireland supporting INEX’s infrastructure and membership but also as part of the larger European and international IXP community.
Barry is also the lead developer of IXP Manager (www.ixpmanager.org) – a full stack management system for IXPs which includes an administration and customer portal; provides end to end provisioning; and both teaches and implements best practice. INEX is very proud to say that this project is now in use at over 60 IXPs.
