Welcome to the GrenoblIX IXP
GrenoblIX is the Internet traffic eXchange Point of Grenoble operated by Rezopole, a non-profit organization.
GrenoblIX 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.
GrenoblIX 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 Grenoble IXP is open to all economic players who want to connect – operators, ISPs, carriers, large companies and municipalities.
Based on the growth of peering, central DCs will become performance levers determining infrastructure choices. The Journal du Net observed the same ratios as a study published by Arcep in 2017 on traffic measurement: 50% transit, 46% private peering and 4% public peering.
Last March, the Arcep gave a favourable opinion to three Calls for Demonstration of Local Commitments. They then obtain an authorization from the government. The first of these AMELs was finally the subject of an agreement signed between Altitude Infrastructure and the Côte-d'Or Departmental Council.
In view of the allocation of 5G frequencies, Arcep is continuing its work to free up the 3.5 GHz band (initially made available for the deployment of THD radio networks). To identify the departments in which these networks are still being considered, the Arcep is launching a public consultation.
Large bandwidth consumers, such as Google, Netflix, Facebook, take advantage of the tips of French operators without paying their fair share. That is why TFF is calling for "more equity". It proposes to introduce a toll, i.e. to charge for access to the networks of French operators.
This month, Robert Walters published a study on job offers in the digital sector in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. The market continues to grow with a 19% increase in ads for IT executives in April 2019 compared to the same period in 2018.
Led by Cisco, the "5G rural first" project is being carried out in the United Kingdom. This consortium of 29 stakeholders aims to find a business model to deploy 5G in rural areas. The principle is to multiply the pilots and experiments in order to minimize the cost of its development.
