Barbados to host Caribbean Peering and Interconnection Forum Featured

Barbados will host a two day Caribbean Peering and Interconnection Forum (CarPIF) later this month, an event that will focus on addressing the interconnection challenges and opportunities in the Caribbean.

The May 27th to 28th event, the first if its kind in the region will be hosted by the Caribbean network operators group, in collaboration with the Caribbean Telecommunications Union, the Internet Society and Packing Clearing House.

The forum is intended to provide participants with regional as well as global insights on how the Caribbean can maximize the opportunities that can be derived for greater interconnection and peering between local, regional and international Internet service providers.

Shernon Osepa, The Internet Society’s Manager of Regional Affairs Latin American and the Caribbean told www.whatsupcaribbean.com  that CarPIF is a special opportunity to connect with peers and industry colleagues to advance local and regional initiatives and build interconnections in the Caribbean.

In addition to the core issues of peering and interconnection, special attention will be paid to Caribbean regulatory and policy issues.

The event will see participation from high-level industry stakeholders from the Caribbean, Latin America, North America and Europe including: Infrastructure providers, Service Providers and IXP Peering Coordinators.

CarPIF will address these key interconnection challenges and opportunities, including:

• National and Cross-border Interconnection Possibilities

• Encouraging and Increasing Local Digital Content Development

• Addressing Internet Traffic Flow Asymmetries in the Caribbean

Participants will acquire knowledge on the latest global peering and interconnection trends, techniques and strategies; they will get an opportunity to initiate and seal local and international interconnection agreements and also advance the Caribbean global Internet competitiveness.

The forum will be held at Hilton Barbados Resort
