Neutrální výměna dat, kvalitní a rychlá infrastruktura, efektivní komunikace, to je český peeringový uzel NIX.CZ



NIX.CZ offers ColorX, which expands the offer of services to connected networks

The Czech neutral peering node NIX.CZ introduces a new service, ColorX, to connected networks. The goal of this service is to enable the interconnection of individual networks within NIX.CZ at first layer level (according to the ISO / OSI reference model). This service is not common with internet exchanges. Companies opting ​​for the ColorX service will experience an increase in efficiency of existing fibre optic connections to NIX.CZ due to a wave multiplex (CWDM). The service will allow interconnections only within a given data center.

"We initiated a discussion on the ColorX service with our members during our regular working groups, it turned out that members are interested in such type of service and that they would like to sign up for it. The pricing conditions for this service will be published early next year. Those who are interested can contact NIX.CZ right away, " said Adam Golecký, Technical Director of NIX.CZ.

NIX.CZ Association has a new Chairman of the Board

At today’s meeting, the Board of Directors of NIX.CZ, the neutral peering node for the Czech Republic, elected Ondřej Filip as the new Chairman. Filip will take up his position on 1 July, replacing Josef Chomyn, who has been appointed to the Czech Telecommunication Office Council two weeks ago. Ondřej Filip is not exactly a newcomer - he has been a member of the Association’s governing body since 2002. From the beginning of July, the Board of the Czech neutral node will therefore have four members: Ondřej Filip, Zbyněk Pospíchal, Jaroslav Střeštík and Milan Švácha.
Josef Chomyn has made an indelible mark on the Association. As a member of the Board of Directors and its Chairman, he has been a leading voice in our Association for more than 17 years. It is also thanks to him that today, NIX.CZ is one of the most important European interconnection hubs. Personally, I would like to wish Josef continued success in his work as a member of the Council of the Czech Telecommunication Office. It is a great honour to be taking over this position after him,“ said Ondřej Filip.
Ondřej Filip graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague (Computer Science) and the University of Pittsburgh - Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business (MBA). During his studies at Charles University, he worked at IPEX, where he later became the Technical Director and Member of the Board. Since 2004, Ondřej Filip has been the Managing Director of CZ.NIC, a national domain administrator. In addition to performing his functions at CZ.NIC and NIX.CZ, he is also active on the boards of two key international organisations: Euro-IX (European Internet Exchange Association) and IX-F (Internet eXchange Federation).
