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.”
