Geo Networks announced that it is sponsoring the Internet Neutral Exchange (INEX) Christmas member’s meeting on 13 December 2012. The quarterly meeting will bring together a wide and influential group of telecoms, data centre and connectivity professionals at Camden Court Hotel in Dublin.
Among the speakers, Jerry Sweeny, Founder and MD, CIX will discuss ‘energy as a resource, data as a product’ and Nick Hilliard, CTO, INEX will explore ‘remotely triggered black holes’. As new associate members, Chris Smedley, Geo’s Chief Executive will present the company’s new Irish connectivity services which were launched last week.
Chris will speak on the completion of Geo’s diverse optical fibre ring between the UK and Ireland. The newest optical fibre ring in the region provides the most advanced, secure and reliable, high performance connectivity between the two countries. As demand for high capacity and scalable bandwidth between the UK and Ireland continues to grow, Geo’s new diverse route design is specifically optimised for heavy data users such as data centres, mobile and fixed line carriers, cloud providers and the digital, financial and high tech sectors. With a high fibre count and the shortest routes, customers will benefit from the most modern fibre technologies, providing virtually limitless capacity and best in class low latency bandwidth.
INEX is an industry owned, not-for-profit association which provides high-speed, reliable and resilient IP traffic exchange facilities for both Irish and international organisations, allowing them to route IP traffic efficiently thereby providing faster, more reliable and lower-latency internet access for their customers. As an associate member, Geo is keen to involve itself in the close-knit Irish IP community but as a dedicated fibre provider does not have an immediate requirement to peer IP traffic.
