IX Australia extends services to New Zealand

The IX Australia network is pleased to launch a new peering service in New Zealand.

Auckland IX (ALK-IX) is a carrier-neutral peering exchange service, initially available within The Data Centre at 220 Queen St Auckland.

“The launch of ALK-IX is a natural expansion for the services we offer,” said IX-Australia Technical Manager, Joe Wooller. “We are currently offering free trials on this service for six months and encourage all interested peers to connect.”

“As a member based not for profit association we will be looking at expanding these services to meet the needs of our members, and will look for additional DCs in the coming months,” said WAIA President Pawel Mrugalski.

“WAIA has a strong proven track record within the industry and over sixteen years experience of operating Internet Exchanges. We are very pleased to be bringing our services to New Zealand.”

A full list of IX-Australia participants is available at https://www.waia.asn.au/ix/participants.

IX Australia growth continues

The IX Australia network enjoys continued growth with the successful launch of new POPs in Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory.

“The IX Australia network has launched ACT-IX, having taken over the operation of TransIX in the iiNet Data Centre, our first peering point in the nation’s capital,” said IX-Australia Technical Manager, Joe Wooller. “This service is free to any of our members who are currently peering on another fabric, similar to our peering point in South Australia (SA-IX).”

“We have also extended our reach in Queensland launching a new POP at Hostnetworks, Brandi Street Eight Mile Plains. This new site provides increased peering options for our members,” said IX-Australia Technical Manager, Joe Wooller.

“The growth of the IX Australia network is a great reflection on the member driven service we provide,” said WAIA President Pawel Mrugalski. “We constantly strive to provide new services for our member base, and we will continue to listen to our member base to facilitate more POPs and services where they are needed.”
