Nuvujaq Society’s Iqaluit Information Session Improving Internet Access with a Community Cloud

*Inuktitut translation below. 

IQALUIT, August 20, 2018 – Iqaluit residents are invited to join Internet experts for a public information session to discuss a project aimed at improving internet performance and security through the creation of a Community Cloud.

A Community Cloud (IXP) is the physical infrastructure through which Internet service providers and content delivery networks exchange or facilitate Internet traffic. The Iqaluit IXP would function as a community cloud, where strategic data is stored on local servers. 

This would provide Iqalummiut with faster and more affordable access to our partner organizations’ content such as operating software updates and patches.

Additionally, northern produced content can be locally accessed while reducing dependence on satellite connections, saving users significant bandwidth and potentially, some costs. 

This session will be an opportunity for Iqaluit residents to come together and discuss telecommunications infrastructure and services, including the benefits of this project.

This session will be led by Nuvujaq President, Madeleine Redfern and will include presentations by:

  • Jacques Latour, Chief Technology Officer of the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), managers of the .CA domain and leader in internet security and infrastructure
  • Damir Bersinic, Hybrid Cloud Technical Sales Lead for Canada, Microsoft Corp.
  • Mike West, CEO of Nuvujaq Inc.

When: Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018 at 7 p.m.

Where: Baffin Room, Frobisher Inn, Astro Hill, Iqaluit, NU

This event is public.  No registration is required.
