A key event that took place during the meeting, was the election of new board members; to keep France-IX fresh, two existing members are randomly selected to step down, and two new members are elected during the GM. This year, the two that were voted in were Lionel Marie, representing Schneider Electric and Mathieu Paonessa, representing Jaguar Network. <iframe src="" width="427" height="356" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" style="border:1px solid #CCC;border-width:1px 1px 0;margin-bottom:5px" allowfullscreen> </iframe> <div style="margin-bottom:5px"> <strong> <a href="" title="IX Reach - &quot;Remote Peering - A Shift in Internet Infrastructure&quot;" target="_blank">IX Reach - &quot;Remote Peering - A Shift in Internet Infrastructure&quot;</a> </strong> from <strong><a href="" target="_blank">IX_Reach</a></strong> </div> For more information about services and partnerships please email, call +44 845 013 0845, or like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
