Details

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 technology expert will join us to discuss Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) in Canada.

Robin Harder

Chief Technologist, O-NET

As a technology expert with deep experience in the inner-workings of IXPs, Robin will explain what 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.
