NIX.CZ allows you to connect, interact and share in whole new ways.



The latest issue of the NIX.CZ Newsletter has been published

The latest issue of the NIX.CZ newsletter informs about the first connection into the exchange via 400GE technology. Other news are then related to technological changes in NIX.SK and expansion into a Vienna data center. In the current newsletter, we also remember a long-time member of the Board of Directors of the association, Jaroslav Střeštík, and we inform that the next event of our traditional Peering Days will take place in 2022.


The first company connected through 400GE technology

O2 announced that it has connected to the NIX.CZ peering node through 400GE technology. This connection is carried out by two 400GE ports.

"We very much appreciate the fact that together with O2 we were the first in the Czech Republic to successfully test and deploy this technology. We believe that in the near future there will be more Internet companies that will benefit from this technology," said Adam Golecký, director NIX.CZ.

Technologické zmeny v NIX.SK a ďalšie témy

Slovenský peeringový uzol, NIX.SK, prevádzkovaný združením NIX.CZ prešiel v uplynulých týždňoch generačnú obmenou. Pôvodné switche Nexus 7000 boli nahradené switchmi Nexus 9300 - vďaka využitiu technológie EVPN / VxLAN umožňujú tieto modely väčšiu škálovateľnosť a lepšie riadenie prevádzky. V súvislosti so zmenami v slovenskej sieti došlo k nasadeniu nových chrbticových switchov tiež v Prahe. Tieto switche sú teraz prepojené technológiou 400GB. Ďalšie podrobnosti nájdu záujemcovia v dnešnom článku na serveri Technický riaditeľ NIX.CZ Marian Rychtecký sa tu okrem iného vyjadruje aj k chystanej expanzii do viedenského dátového centra.

Jaroslav Střeštík, a long-term member of the Board of Directors of the NIX.CZ and a prominent figure in the Czech networking community, succumbed to health complications associated with COVID-19 yesterday.

"Jaroslav Střeštík has been a member of NIX.CZ and served as a member of the Board of Directors for more than eight years. It is therefore a great credit to him that NIX.CZ is one of the most significant organizations in its field worldwide. We were close friends, so his passing is all the more painful for me. On behalf of the entire Czech community of network administrators, I would like to express my sincere condolences to his family and loved ones. Jardo, a heartfelt thank you for your work and for who you were." said Adam Golecký on behalf of the NIX.CZ Association.
