The call for ideas around the Net is running until July 20th, 2017. Grants are available for Open Source projects that promote the Austrian internet as well as scientific papers. Additionally, there are grants for ideas regarding "Blockchain", "Closing the Gender Gap" and "Privacy by Design".
On June 1, 2017, we reduced the prices for 10 Gbit/s and 100 Gbit/s switch ports. The reduction applies automatically to all new and existing customers.
On March 28, VIX has doubled the trunk capacity between our PoPs NIG and InterXion.
Even though our existing capacities still had plenty of reserves, we wanted to safeguard against overload situations in the event of simultaneous failures of several VIX participants with large bandwidths.
The VIX Team is tickled to announce a new throughput record achieved on Tuesday, December 13th 2016: 533Gbit/sec.
The Peering Days 2017 will take place at the Austria Trend Hotel in Ljubljana. The program includes a RIPE Workshop and a variety of presentations. Please register at www.peeringdays.eu
