A Notable Jump in Traffic

Big Plans for the City of Sails

It’s great to see these regional exchanges continue to grow, and as they do so, they will have the potential to attract more local cloud infrastructure. NZIX continues to work with […]

CHC-IX Chorus EdgeConnect Member Survey

We’re keen to get your feedback about our Chorus EdgeConnect peering service. Launched back in November 2020, we created this service in collaboration with Chorus, to enable Chorus customers to communicate directly with other NZIX members on the same exchange despite a physical connection to NZIX exchange switches. The survey contains three questions and will […]

The NOG can theoretically take place now at the red level, although orange would be preferable. Nevertheless, we are looking forward to (hopefully) seeing as many of you as possible […]
