Hi All,

As governments and network operators strive to generate more value using
the Internet for citizens and customers, IXPs are emerging as a critical
piece of the puzzle primarily because when properly set up and run, they
keep local traffic local.

    - Are you a manager or network engineer who runs an IXP?  And want
to ensure that you set up an run an IXP according to international best
practices in an economically sustainable manner?
    - Are you a government regulator or policymaker who needs to
understand how the government can best support the IXP through smart
policies and targetted investments?
    - Are you the peering manager or coordinator for a network operator
and you want to understand how your network could create and capture
more value for your customers through the IXP?

Then join us on 26th September 2019 as our host Nishal Goburdhan - one
of the world’s foremost experts in the development and operation of IXPs
exposes the secret and not-so-secret sauce behind running an effective
IXP. During this two-hour webinar, you will learn:

    - “The 10 Biggest Mistakes that Make IXPs Underperform”
