This Googler Sat On The Future Of Mexico's Internet

Jack Fermon from Google snapped a picture of him sitting on a stack of Cisco hardware devices. On the caption he explained that he is actually sitting on the future of Mexico's internet. Now that is power!

Jack Fermon, Google and other companies are working together to build out six new open Internet exchange points (IX or IXP) in the country. The goal is to "decrease the latency and the cost of the local internet connections" in several cities in Mexico says Fermon.

An IXP is a physical infrastructure through which Internet service providers (ISPs) and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) exchange Internet traffic between their networks (autonomous systems).

Nice to tell your grandkids one day that you sat on their internet.

He posted this on Google+.
