NIX.CZ is taking part in the formation of a new peering node in Montenegro
From September 28th to October 4th, 2014 the 21st annual Infofest conference took place in Budva, Montenegro. The conference hosted a workshop as part of the efforts to create a new independent peering exchange in this Mediterranean country. The event was organized by ITU in co-operation with the local Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Society. Among the invited guests were the representatives of organizations such as ISOC and those of the European peering nodes: INEX, SOX.RS and NIX.CZ.
Adam Golecký, the Technical Director of NIX.CZ, represented the Czech Republic and had this to say about the event: "Our colleagues from Montenegro work intensively on creating their own peering node in their county. This meeting was held to obtain information from the invited organizations in order to help their efforts. They particularly appreciate the neutrality of NIX.CZ, as well as our non-profit status, successful history and manifold experience. We are glad to help our colleagues from Montenegro in developing their peering node, and we are also delighted to share our experience with building a local Internet and telecommunications community".
NIX.CZ is perceived as a peering leader in Montenegro and the NIX.CZ Association is known for its ongoing commitment to creating and cultivating online communities, not only in the Czech Republic but also abroad. Our support of professional meetings such as the CEE Peeing Day and our participation at major events such as the European Peering Forum clearly indicate our commitment.
