EPF (European Peering Forum) started in 2005 to provide the peering community with a fruitful event that enables them to successfully establish new peers and extend existing peering arrangements as well as sharing information and experience beneficial to the whole peering community.

 

EPF is organised annually by the host IX’s AMS-IX, DE-CIX, LINX, and NETNOD at a location somewhere in Europe. Organisation includes finding sponsors, speakers, topics, location, hotels, venues etc. The event’s budget is solely the financial responsibility for the organising exchanges but is limited with the generous support of the event sponsors.

The EPF has grown into an event that attracts over 350 people from the European peering community. Members of the respective IX’s are specifically invited to participate, other peering networks are also welcome by request. In the spirit of Euro-IX and the European peering community, other European Internet Exchanges are also invited (one attendee per IX with a maximum of 15).
