London Internet Exchange Welcomes World Summit's Agenda for Development of Equitable and Neutral Global Connectivity

TUNIS, Tunisia, November 18 /PRNewswire/ -- London's Internet Exchange (LINX), one of the world's largest peering points where nearly 200 ISPs and content network providers exchange traffic daily, supports and encourages the development of more Internet Exchange Points, as proposed this week by the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). LINX, which on the 19th of October, became the first Internet Exchange in history to carry 100 Gb/s of traffic, agrees with Article 50B of the WSIS "Tunis Agenda," calling for the strategic development Internet Exchange Points to ensure affordable global connectivity and to improve equitable access for all.

"LINX welcomes WSIS' recommendation for creating national, sub-regional and regional Internet Exchange Points (IXPs)," states Ms. Vanessa Evans, Sales and Marketing Manager of LINX. "It directly reinforces the importance of the LINX business model. LINX has a rich history, as a founding member of EuroIX, of supporting and developing local Exchange Points. This IXP development is critical in areas such as Eastern Europe and Africa, where Exchanges foster local markets and enables digital inclusion."

"We are very pleased that the importance of IXP development has been recognised and reinforced by the Tunis Agenda," states Mr. Malcolm Hutty, Regulation Director of LINX. "Over the coming months and beyond, we will continue our ongoing efforts to reach out to regional IXPs, in order to offer our mutual support, experience and technical expertise."

As the Internet landscape continues to evolve, LINX sees the development of connectivity processes and services as critical to global access. LINX is pleased with the opportunity over the past several years to participate in the WSIS, and look forward to future participation and support, so that one day there will be connectivity for all.
