Abstract

The Internet Exchange Point (IXP), an Ethernet fabric central to the structure of the global Internet, is largely absent from community-driven collaborative network infrastructure. IXPs exist in central, typically urban, environments where strong network infrastructure ensures high levels of connectivity. Between rural and remote networks, separated by distance and terrain, no such infrastructure exists. In this paper we present RemIX a distributed IXP architecture designed for the community network environment. We examine this praxis using an implementation in Scotland, with suggestions for future development and research.
