Welcome to the LyonIX IXP
LyonIX is the Internet traffic eXchange Point of Lyon operated by Rezopole, a non-profit organization.
LyonIX members can improve the quality of their Internet traffic and can benefit from lower bandwidth prices. Therefore the IXP helps develop very high speed Internet in Lyon.
LyonIX is also a NAP (Network Access Point), a market place which allows members to buy or sell Internet transit and/or any layer 2 or IP services.
The Lyon IXP is open to all economic players who want to connect – operators, ISPs, carriers, large companies and municipalities.
In its 2019 report, Arcep lists actions to ensure the openness of the Internet and potential threats and presents its actions to contain them. The topics discussed are quality of service, data interconnection, transition to IPv6, net neutrality and terminal openness.
Since 1995, Mary Meeker has been reporting on major Internet trends. The 2019 edition has reached a new milestone! According to the document, more than half of the world's population (51%) now has access to the Internet. Whereas in 2009, just ten years ago, this rate was only 24%.
Research shows that a large part of the infrastructure will be affected by rising water levels in the coming years. Within 15 years, thousands of kilometres of fibre optic cables and hundreds of other critical infrastructure are at risk of being overwhelmed by the waves.
Telecom operators are concerned about the impact of this heatwave episode on their infrastructure networks. The electrical network, which is heavily stressed and subjected to high temperatures, can fail these equipments. They can then stop working in a punctual and localized way.
The visionary trend of the 2010's positioned data center surfaces in Hyperscal DCs. Today the reality is very different. This vision of hyper-concentration of surfaces has been replaced by a continuum model: Hyperscales, Hubs, regional, "5G", micro and pico DC.
The L-band (1.5 GHz) will be made available to mobile operators from 1 January 2023 to deploy future 5G and THD networks. But here we are, the plan announced by the Arcep a few weeks ago is not without raising questions from both current and future tenants.
