As you can see at netnods public traffic stats, Swedish peering traffic in April 2009 is only the half of the peering traffic by the end of March 2009. Traffic dropped from about 190Gbit/s to 90Gbit/s. This is because of the implementation of “Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement Directive, IPRED” in Sweden.
Although I was not able to visit all sessions at the RIPE 56 meeting this week in Berlin, it was really important for me to go there. Not only, that I had the chance to see the fantastic people I met at the Euro-IX Forum in Stockholm, RIPE meeting gives me also the opportunity to meet people I only knew via mail and telephone. And of course there were a lot of cool social events in the evenings over the week. My favorite event was the party in the club Trompete, sponsored by NETNOD.
This week was great, because I’ve been a couple of days in Stockholm at the 12th Euro-IX Forum. As I work for BCIX in my spare time, I had the chance to go there. I met a lot of interesting people at the Euro-IX meeting, most of them network operater from Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) all-over the world. As the weather was beautiful during theses days, I also walked around a lot in Stockholm. Gamla Stan was very nice, as well as the Modern Museum on Skeppsholmen where currently a great Andy Warhol exhibition is opened until 4th of May 2008.
