Local Digital Exchanges

Internet infrastructure hubs supporting innovation and collaboration

Half-day Workshop London 2pm 27 January 2016

The Digital Exchange concept plugs an important gap in digital sector and infrastructure development. A shared, neutral facility supports ISPs and digital businesses developing new products and services to deliver the 21st century Internet.

Now that concept has been made real with the Brighton Digital Exchange. It’s a neutral Point of Presence and advanced hosting facility. With its unique shared ownership model, the exchange is giving SMEs access to superior infrastructure, while stimulating innovation and collaboration and supporting the investment business case for service providers, carriers and digital businesses.

This innovative model is ready for replication and adaption in other locations with opportunities for local economic development agencies and investors.

At this event you will hear about the Brighton experience and how local digital exchanges can accelerate infrastructure transformation.
