Reduced Delay

As consumers demand a more responsive online experience the latency (or delay) on their IP service provider’s routing connections is an important factor. By connecting the customer directly to A.IX, the number of hops between the customer and customers is reduced, leading to higher-speed.

Better routing

ISPs, content providers and others delivering services over IP who exchange traffic within a given region by peering with each other reduce round-trip delays and enhance value to all users local to that region. Typically, a provider sourcing content can benefit by peering with those providers servicing a material proportion of their customer community.

Greater resilience

Organisations connecting to the Internet via a single upstream transit provider are at risk from that single provider, and the connection to it, being a single point of failure. By connecting to A.IX, while the Member will still need to buy connectivity from one or more transit providers in order to reach those parts of the Internet not reachable via peering.
