MyIX Experiences Significant Membership Boosts; International Sign-Up include Google Inc.

Persatuan Pengendali Internet Malaysia, the operator of Malaysia Internet Exchange (known as MyIX) today announces its membership increase of 76% from 25 members in early 2011 to 44 members as at to-date.

This update information was revealed by Chiew Kok Hin (pic), Chairman of MyIX at the Enterprise IT News Cloud Forum 2011 held in Kuala Lumpur recently, who also shared that this achievement was just within 10 months since it embarked on an awareness campaign to boost MyIX’s role in the routing of the country’s domestic Internet data traffic.

“This encouraging membership increase is important because it also translates to higher utilization of the Internet Exchange’s total bandwidth utilization by almost 50% percent. Initiated in 2006, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (SKMM) has so far put an investment to build the total of eight (8) nodes around the country; so we are working to ensure that its capacity is optimized.”

Chiew was delivering the Keynote address to an IT delegation of over 90 participants, where he shared the crucial role of Internet uptime and performance ‘connectivity’, for businesses to be able to leverage ‘Cloud Computing’ as a business model.

MyIX’s awareness campaign includes revamping its website to be more user-friendly, going on marketing road show, and participating in events like the Integrated Engineering Carnival 2011 organized by the Engineering Union of University Technology Mara.

International Tie-Ups for MyIX

Over the past months, MyIX has also captured the attention of major international broadband provider carriers. “Large, foreign giant like Google Inc is connected to MyIX and potential companies like Verizon Communications Inc and Akamai Technologies Inc are now aware of MyIX and see bigger picture commercial viability of operating in this region whilst being connected to Malaysia’s domestic Internet exchange,” said Chiew.

He explained that having the memberships of international broadband carriers hugely benefited MyIX as it helps promote the cross-sell of the national Internet exchange’s bandwidth capacity and connectivity routes to foreign ISPs operating at regional and international levels.

Moving forward, MyIX plans to move expand its membership to include ISP from APAC countries.

“Whether we do it directly by ourselves in marketing MyIX, or via leveraging our foreign ISP partners, I see MyIX becoming a much more active Internet exchange – to play an important role in increasing the standard of Internet broadband connectivity in this region.”
