Neutral exchanges have become a success factor both economically as well as in securing the free, open exchange of information worldwide. In the session we will address how the establishment of an IXPs might impact the national Networks and which opportunities will present itself. What possibilities are there to create a neutral, non monopolistic and non-government controlled IXP in a given political environment? How will it protect Internet freedoms? The session will explain which models have been successful and how IXPs can help secure the future of the Internet.
