LINX and France-IX are collaborating to enhance the value of peering in Europe and beyond. With a shared vision of building an open community of networks, and to grow an "internet for everyone", the collaboration will cover commercial areas, as well as areas such as operations and software development.
Franck Simon, president at France-IX said, "One of our aims is also to work on helping both English speaking and French speaking African countries to develop IXPs, and be able to provide African networks with the ability to reach either London or Marseille".
LINX has over 20 years of operations and 750 interconnected networks; John Souter, CEO at LINX commented, "Network operators and Internet exchanges understand how important it is to work together for a greater good. By collaborating with France-IX we can help maintain and grow an effective Internet for everyone."
