MyIS 2012 AGM Elects New Committee to Push Further Dev Plan

Malaysia’s sole neutral Internet Exchange operator, MyIX – also known as ‘Persatuan Pengendali Internet Malaysia’, held its Annual General Meet recently at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.

The first session saw a keynote speech by the existing Chairman of MyIX, Mr. Chiew Kok Hin, who thanked all the members of MyIX for their continued support and praised committee for carrying out their duties with commitment and enthusiasm.

Chiew shared on the importance of MyIX’s role in supporting the development and competitiveness of local ISPs in offering their services more competitively within the country and around the region; as well as highlighted some key MyIX milestones over the past year that included the extension of new nodes for better peering of the traffic exchanged.

Present at the AGM were all the ordinary members and associate members of MyIX and SKMM representatives to scrutinize the AGM elections proceedings to elect the new committee for the next two years.

Current Chairman Sustains Position; New Committee Formed.

Mr. Chiew Kok Hin, Group CEO of AIMS Data Centre Sdn Bhd was declared as the new Chairman of the Persatuan until 2014, with En. Mohd Rosli Abdul Manaf, General Manager of Sales & Marketing of JARING Communications Sdn Bhd announced as the Deputy Chairman of the Persatuan.

The nomination committee of MyIX proposed that the Chairman shall be elected from the committee which comprises three permanent committee members (from the founding members) and six elected committee members at the annual general meeting every year.

The three Permanent Committee Members of the Persatuan are JARING Communications Sdn Bhd, Telekom Malaysia Berhad and AIMS Data Centre Sdn Bhd.

The voting for the elections of the six committee members at the 4th AGM of the Persatuan were conducted by ballot and the following members were elected as the committee; Maxis Broadband Sdn Bhd, REDtone – CNX Broadband Sdn Bhd, Packet One Networks (M) Sdn Bhd, Celcom Axiata Berhad, MyKris Asia Sdn Bhd and DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd for the year 2012.

Some Key 2011 Highlights

Last year 2011 saw tremendous growth for MyIX, paving way for more in 2012. Among them were its securing of contracts with service providers like Fiberail Sdn Bhd, Aims Data Centre Bhd and Diversified Gateway Bhd to maintain and manage the MyIX network.

Apart from that, MyIX’s phase 2 consisted of the additional 5 new nodes in installed in 2011 at Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Penang, Johor Bahru and Kuantan. MyIX is also working closely with SKMM to promote the Regional nodes by giving briefing to various organizations in respective regions.

Route Server is being used by the Persatuan to ease the peering process especially for new members. The route server was rolled out at the end of December 2011 and to date some of the members have established peering with it.

MyIX today is also seen as a strategic initiative partner and good alternative for the ISPs market players to reduce their connectivity backhaul cost to and within Peninsular Malaysia.
