Já que o tema de sustentabilidade de IXPs como o IX.br (ex PTT.br) tem
estado em voga na lista, achei interessante comentar deste workshop que foi
aprovado para o próximo IGF (Internet Governance Forum):


O IGF é um evento global, mas por acaso a próxima edição ocorrerá em João
Pessoa - PB - Brasil.

IGF 2015 subtheme that this workshop falls under

Emerging Issues


Bandwidth management has been for sometime an evolving concern for the
Internet community around the globe. The rapid introduction of new Internet
applications and services as well as the rapid growth of Internet-connected
devices has created new challenges for the rational management of the
network. Internet Exchange Points - IXPs are a vital strategy for enhancing
the quality of Internet operation. One of the main advantages of an IXP is
the rationalization of costs, since traffic balances are solved locally and
directly between the participants not involving third-party networks often
physically distant. Another important advantage is better traffic delivery
management because data flows remain as closer as possible to their
destination, resulting in better performance and quality to end users.
Research carried out by CETIC.br has shown that the Brazilian IXP
initiative (PTTMetro) yields up to 30% of savings in transit purchases by
ISPs in the country. Despite the solid evidence and the well known benefits
of IXP projects, the challenge of efectively involving the Autonomous
Systems comunity, endangers the sustainability of the initiatives. The
workshop puts together organizations in charge of IXPs and Autonomous
Systems from all over the World to foster discussion on the challenges to
create sustainable Internet Exchange Point projects in developing nations.
