Singapore Internet Exchange

To strengthen Singapore’s status as a major info-communications hub in the Asia Pacific region, the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA) facilitated the setting up of Singapore Internet Exchange Limited (SGIX) in 2009, an industry-owned Internet Exchange provider with the objective of seeking both international and regional carriers to choose Singapore as their Internet hub and at the same time, encouraging Internet content providers to host their Internet content in the country.

SGIX operates a country-wide Internet peering network with its peering points located across major data centres which enable seamless and efficient exchange of Internet traffic between connected peers. These peers include service providers offering Telco services, IP transit, Content & Social Media, Video Streaming, Cloud services, Content Distribution Networks, Online Gaming, Educational Institutions, Research Organizations etc.

SGIX has grown since its incorporation and is now one of the largest open and neutral Internet Exchanges in the region.
