GPF 13 – Helping Establish a Neutral IXP in Albania

Helping Establish a Neutral IXP in Albania

Maurizio Goretti, NaMeX Roma IXP

We’ll look at work carried out by NaMeX and its partners (RIPE, Internet Society, Euro-IX and others) in the Albanian capital Tirana. NaMeX supported local communities to establish the first Neutral IXP in Albania (ANIX,Albanian Neutral Internet eXchange) and the first Albanian NOG, ALNOG.

Next we’ll present the history of interconnection in Albania, analysis done in tracing interAS traffic in collaboration with RASH (the nascent Albanian National Research Network) and taking the first steps in setting up the ANIX interconnection infrastructure (hosting their Neutral IXP).
