[PDF]TREX Workshop 2009

TREX is pleased to host a workshop on multi-exit BGP together with sponsors Juniper Networks and Cisco Systems. The workshop will be held on Thursday, February 12th 2009 at the Hermia1 Auditorium in Tampere from 12:00 to 17:00 and will continue in the Hermia1 Sauna until 04:00. The workshop will be of value to anyone interested in arranging multiple peering or transit locations in their network, and anyone interested in peering at TREX Regional Exchanges Oy.

Multi-exit BGP refers to the case where two operators have multiple interconnections in different places, such as on internet exchanges in different cities. Adopting this practise often warrants a rethinking of traffic engineering and peering policies.


The workshop is free to all invited and preregistered parties. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Registration for the seminar has closed.


You will get parking permits from the lobby. The parking permits should be placed on the windshield of your car.


Hotel Hermica is located within just 5 minutes walking distance from the seminar location. Overnight workshop participants are urged to try to reserve a room there.
