Central Asia is a landlocked region with a high potential to serve as a crossroads of interconnection for other regions and countries, including China, Iran, Russia and the Caucasus.

The Central Asia Peering and Interconnection Forum is a two-day event for network engineers, peering coordinators, Internet providers, cloud administrators and data centre operators featuring meetings, presentations and networking sessions.

Participants and speakers discussed core topics promoting peering and IXPs in Central Asia, Iran and neighbouring regions, such as legislative and regulatory frameworks, opportunities for regional and international connectivity, funding and resources for IXPs, hosting CDNs, and network security, stability and resilience, including MANRS and RPKI.

Special attention was given to Internet measurement tools and instruments provided by different local and international stakeholders.

The Central Asia Peering and Interconnection Forum was organised in cooperation with the Internet Society and Euro-IX.

Presentations from the event are archived on YouTube.

The event was held in English, Persian and Russian. Live translation
