IAA supports the launch of NZ Internet Exchange Inc as foundation member
“Following the overwhelming success of the Auckland Internet Exchange
(AKL-IX) trial conducted by the Internet Association of Australia (IAA),
operators of IX Australia, we are pleased to announce the launch of the New
Zealand Internet Exchange Incorporated (NZIX Inc),” said Chairman Davey
“Through the support of the team at IAA we have developed a member
governed, neutral peering exchange which will provide easier and more cost
effective interconnects for the internet community of New Zealand.
“Moving forward the NZIX Inc committee will take on overseeing the
management and growth of the exchange with the ongoing support of IAA.”
“As a founding member of NZ-IX Inc we are committed to providing ongoing
support to the exchange growth,” said IAA President Tom Berryman. “The
development of an independent and neutral peering exchange in New Zealand
benefits the internet community in the region by introducing more peering
options and services, as well as our existing membership and peering base
at home in Australia.”
The AKL-IX exchange has been in a trial period for 12 months, and the
exchange will commence charging for services from 1 July 2016.
We are now inviting all our current peers to sign up as members of NZIX
Inc by visiting https://portal.akl-ix.nz/
and ordering the required port
size, 1GB or 10GB, both sizes will be charged at $350 NZD per month
NZIX looks forward to the support of our existing peers, and welcomes new
peers to contact us to join.

About the Internet Association of Australia Inc
The Internet Association of Australia Inc (IAA) is a member-based
association representing the Internet community. Founded in 1995, as the
Western Australian Internet Association (WAIA), the Association changed its
name in early 2016 to better reflect our membership growth.
IAA representatives are available for comment on a range of issues
regarding the internet including, but not limited to, internet
infrastructure, internet technologies and the use of the Internet in
business. IAA is keen to provide independent, balanced information and
impartial advice for Internet users including businesses, parents, kids,
schools, seniors, the media, law enforcement and mobile users.

IX-Australia and Peering
IX-Australia is a service provided by the Internet Association of
Australia to Corporate members. It is the longest running and lowest cost
Internet Exchange in Australia. The Queensland (QLD-IX), Victorian
(VIC-IX), South Australian (SA-IX), New South Wales (NSW-IX) and Australian
Capital Territory (ACT-IX) services have built on the success of the WA
Internet Exchange (WA-IX). IAA has also established a peering point in New
Zealand (AKL-IX). The peering service provides direct, low latency and high
speed connectivity between members at a fraction of the cost of using a
typical upstream provider. The members of the exchange point benefit by
lowering their operating costs while providing a better internet experience
to their end customers.
IAA highly recommends peers join PeeringDB to facilitate the exchange of
information related to peering. Visit www.peeringdb.com
