CAPIF 2: Tashkent, 19-20 September 2023

The Central Asia Peering and Interconnection Forum (CAPIF) is a two-day event for network engineers, peering coordinators, Internet providers, cloud administrators and data centre operators. CAPIF 2 will take place on 19-20 September 2023 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

The event is designed to support the needs of the peering and interconnection community in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Iran.

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.

We will discuss 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 RPKI. Special attention will also be given to Internet measurement tools and instruments provided by different local and international stakeholders.

The second edition of CAPIF is organised in cooperation with Uzbektelecom and Inha University in Tashkent.

Presentations from the event will be recorded and archived on YouTube for those interested.

The event will be held in English, Persian and Russian. Live translation will be provided.
