The Virtual Interconnect Days (VID) are a series of free, one-hour virtual events focused on bringing the International Internet, Peering & Interconnection community together to meet, network, share knowledge, have some fun and do business.
The VID attracts people in technical and commercial functions of all levels, representing a broad spectrum of the community and is the perfect place to build your network.
As a fast growing part of the Internet Core Infrastructure, NL-ix occupies a central role in the Ecosystem. We are a partner to all other pieces of that ecosystem. That is why NL-ix is able to bring together participants of all different disciplines of the Ecosystem on its Events. We feel this gives us the responsibility to bring the community together.
So there you have it! Polish your virtual presence, pick your favorite backdrop and be sure to pre-register for the June 16 edition of the Virtual Interconnect Days!
