The launch of AMS-IX Singapore is an integral part of HGC and AMS-IX’s strategy to implement IX business in various key locations in Asia. Locating at the heart of the Internet in Southeast Asia, Singapore has been an important connectivity hub in the region.
The small city state has one of the highest density metro sites for colocation in the world that is also a major content hub for the surrounding countries and a key landing site for subsea cables. The region has seen tremendous bandwidth growth in the last couple of years and is expected to grow in the coming years as markets mature. In addition, the connectivity market in Singapore offers opportunity for a new and competitive Internet Exchange that offers high-quality and cost efficient public peering.
The new carrier-neutral Internet Exchange will enable companies such as Content Delivery Networks, Application Providers, Cloud Providers and Telecom Carriers to exchange internet traffic with a multitude of networks using a single connection. As a result, this allows them to lower their latency, increase their redundancy and decrease their peering costs.
AMS-IX Singapore, together with AMS-IX Hong Kong and AMS-IX Bangkok, are designed to serve potential partners in many neighbouring countries including; Australia, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, and others. It has already attracted some launching members to join including the leading cloud service provider, IPv6 network provider and hyperscale OTTS.
With this expansion, HGC and AMS-IX show their commitment to enhance the Internet by increasing connectivity through public peering. AMS-IX members, customers and the Internet community in Singapore will benefit from wider options to interconnect with each other across the metros of Asia thereby optimizing latency, cost and significantly improving user experience.
