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.
