SPEAKER: Flavio Luciani (NAMEX)

12:05 UTC



MODERATOR: Eileen Gallagher (INEX)
PANELISTS: Christian Kaufmann (AKAMAI)Michael Rabinowitz (INTERXION), Thomas King (DE-CIX), Mark Daley (EPSILON)

As the peering industry and IXPs move into the grown-up years, what does the future hold? 

In this panel discussion we will look at the various external forces that will impact how the industry might evolve and some insight to areas where IXPs can create internal momentum to maximise new opportunities and deliver more for their members and customers.

With external forces such as regulation to data centre strategy to automation and cost efficiency drives in large members, where will IXPs source their revenue to keep the network and the organisation operating in the future?

As often dominant inter-connect points in local and national internet ecosystems, is being the enterprise / cloud services interconnect points a natural progression and source of reliable revenue for IXPs going forward?

We will also look at the original core value of IXPs, reduced latency, and in light of the increase in remote peering and interconnected IXPs, are we as an industry still true to this and if not, what is the core value?
Finally and central to Euro-IX, what power does community bring as the industry further matures?
