After being postponed, the NOG finally took place in May! It was a great couple of days starting with Dan Faulknor’s Bootstraping an ISP and finishing with Liam Farr’s Starlink Hacks – Hardware is Hard Easy. With a good turnout, we managed to catch up with a few members and handed out some of our swag!

IAA Peering Engineer, Aaron Chidiac, gave a fantastic, detailed update on our network, including details of our plan to upgrade AKL-IX and build the western path; he even threw in a few jokes for our entertainment! Our Chair, Chris Browning, followed on with an interesting update, where he discussed the potential new educational ISP and asked for industry feedback on the potential project.

Join us for our 2022 Annual General Meeting in Auckland in July!

The New Zealand Internet Exchange Inc (NZIX) is proud to announce the official launch of the Wellington IX (WLG-IX), an exchange point enabling connection between NZIX members nationally for local peering.

The new IX will enable members to exchange local traffic in two locations Xtreme DC and Spark Wellington Central Exchange.

“Internet Exchange Points are vital to improving efficiency to neighbouring networks, and with the opening of WLG-IX, New Zealanders will benefit from another point of interconnect for cost-effective, high bandwidth and low latency connectivity to other provider and content networks” Chris Browning, NZIX Chair said today. “This exchange is a key component to what the Society would like to achieve for New Zealand’s Internet.”

“The Society identified the need for an exchange point in Wellington. Being our nation’s capital, it is home to Parliament and many other government agencies and businesses” explains NZIX Treasurer, Dave Mill. “The initial uptake is very promising.”

The twelve-month free period begins Monday, November 1, 2021, for all NZIX members.

The Society currently operates eight points of presence across Auckland IX (AKL-IX), Christchurch IX (CHC-IX) and Wellington (WLG-IX) with the Internet Association of Australia Ltd (IAA) providing underlying network support operations.

More information about WLG-IX can be found on the NZIX website.

For those who attended NZNOG this year, you will have heard about the massive growth experienced by NZIX over the past 12 months, with an 82% increase to traffic on the IX at peak.

Growth is only meaningful with the right analysis, so we are pleased to announce that New Zealand members can now access exclusive flow-based metrics data in the Members Portal.

Login and select the Metrics panel to view a breakdown of traffic flows by Peer . This new feature will enable members to make a more accurate assessment of the areas providing best value for their business and where they might be missing out.

Similar metrics analysis will be rolled out to Australian-based IX services over the next 9 months.

If you weren’t able to attend NZNOG you can catch Tim’s presentation here, and download the slides here. If you need assistance with portal access, or with any feedback please drop us a line to
