Appearing at Peering Asia 5.0 – By Chris Browning

In November 2023, I had the privilege of attending Peering Asia, held in the vibrant city of Seoul, South Korea.

Before the main event commenced, I attended the Asia Pacific Internet Exchange Association (APIX) meeting, where many of the region’s Internet stakeholders converge to share experiences, tackle challenges, and explore cutting-edge technologies shaping our digital landscape.

APIX gatherings are an invaluable opportunity to glean insights from others’ experiences, ensuring we stay ahead of the curve in navigating the ever-evolving Internet ecosystem. From discussing best practices, to addressing emerging risks and standards, APIX sets the stage for collaboration and continuous learning.

As Peering Asia unfolded, it became evident why it’s such an important event for industry leaders. Drawing a diverse array of participants, including hyper-scalers, content distributors, transit providers, internet exchanges, and service providers, Peering Asia serves as a dynamic forum for fostering connections and driving innovation.

Representing NZIX, I had the privilege of engaging with existing international Members along with a number of potential peers to discuss their needs and data centre locations. Throughout the event, the emphasis was on facilitating meaningful interactions and partnerships. From engaging presentations to fruitful networking sessions, Peering Asia provided me with great opportunities to network and forge new alliances.
