Building a better online Canada is an important issue for all Canadians. Whether it’s funding a project through the Community Investment Program, helping build an IXP or testing Canada’s internet performance, CIRA is doing its part. Join us to learn more about how CIRA is helping your community.

In addition to an overview of CIRA, a representative from the Calgary Internet Exchange (YYCIX) will discuss Internet Exchange Points in Canada.

Robin Harder

Chief Technologist, O-NET and Director of the YYCIX

Located in Calgary, the YYCIX is Alberta’s first Internet Exchange Point. Robin will explain what Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) are, their impact on internet traffic, performance and cost. He will also share the benefits of IXPs for local businesses and internet users alike and what they can do for the digital future of the City of Calgary, the Province of Alberta and our Nation.

Presentations will begin at 5:30 PM.
