Interxion to Sponsor RIPE 59 Meeting

Interxion, a European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced its sponsorship of the upcoming RIPE 59 Meeting, a five-day event where Internet Service Providers, network operators and other interested parties from Europe and beyond discuss policies, procedures and the latest issues and challenges facing the Internet. Representatives from over 300 global networks, many of whom are Interxion customers, will attend to discuss network issues, security, and Internet policy. The event will take place in Lisbon, at the Corinthia Hotel from 5th to 9th October.

"We are pleased to continue our active support for RIPE, " said Anthony Foy, Interxion Group Managing Director. "Interxion's aim is to be the data centre of choice for Internet-facing organisations across Europe, and we provide the widest and busiest footprint of Internet Exchanges inside our data centres of any European operator. A key part of our connectivity strategy is keeping abreast of the latest developments in IP, and RIPE is where a lot of these are first discussed."

At present, 15 of Europe's leading Internet exchanges have a presence in Interxion's carrier-neutral data centres. Over 500 carriers and ISPs terminate their traffic with Interxion, creating a network-rich environment with excellent peering opportunities.
