Open Exchange Points and SDX’s – Attributes for Understanding

Time 05/17/16 04:30PM-05:30PM

Room Indiana/Iowa (6th Floor)

Session Abstract

Currently, there are almost as many definitions of an open exchange point or SDX as there are exchange points. Several different groups, including GLIF and the GNA, are working to unify and standardize these definitions. This is reaching a critical point as more exchange points behave in different ways, but all are called “open”.

This session will include presentations from several current exchange point operators all being compared on the same set of attributes, followed by a discussion of possible definitions and the ways forward.
