This makes Sydney a strategic choice for companies looking to reach end users and customers in this region, and benefit from fast access to the growing markets in Asia.

    What is the New South Wales IX (NSW-IX) and what are the benefits of peering?

    The New South Wales IX (NSW-IX) provides a platform for ISPs and other network operators to exchange internet traffic between. It is one of many Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) thoughout Australia operated by the Internet Association of Australia. As your business grows its global presence, peering at an exchange point like NSW-IX can reduce latency and improve the performance of your network, especially to local markets.
