The Importance of IXPs
During the month of June, we released two independent reports that assess IAA’s contribution and importance to Australia’s Internet. In this report, “The Importance of IXPs in Australia”, Professor Matthew Roughan from the University of Adelaide provides an analysis of the value and importance of IXPs. Using technical and scientific literature, he substantiates the benefits of IXPs, including improving performance, reliability and security. It is an excellent report, as it contains a substantial technical background, a review of the scientific literature on IXPs, and clearly articulates their benefits. We highly recommend adding it to your weekend reading list! Read the full report.
