The WA Internet Association (WAIA) is proud to announce another new deployment of a carrier-neutral peering trial which will be taking place at NEXTDC’s B1 facility in Brisbane, Queensland (QLD-IX). This peering point builds on the highly successful WA Internet Exchange (WAIX) and current trial occurring in Victoria (VIC-IX).

“NEXTDC is delighted that WAIX has selected NEXTDC to commence their Queensland IX trial. NEXTDC is focused on establishing a national data centre footprint and bring with it a cloud enabling ecosystem. Organisations such as WAIA are key to achieving that goal.” Said Mr Bevan Slattery, CEO of NEXTDC.

WAIA would like to invite all existing members and encourage any new members to take opportunity to trial a carrier neutral peering service supplied by WAIA within Brisbane. The VIC-IX has seen steady growth with strong member interest leading to the success of the current Melbourne trial. The WAIA Executive team looks forward to engaging with all new connections in Brisbane.

Further updates will be provided and for all QLD-IX enquiries, please forward your interest to Joe Wooller (WAIA Technical Manager) on 0412 005 457
