KUALA LUMPUR, April 29 (Bernama) -- DE-CIX International, the world's largest Internet exchange (IX) operator, is setting up new interconnection solutions for IX connectivity around the globe including in Malaysia.
DE-CIX International chief executive officer Ivo A. Ivanov said the application of interconnection solutions specifically is important to businesses and the IX operator has introduced this concept to Malaysia.
He said the interconnection solutions will offer different types of customised services closer to the needs of the market, in line with the deployment of the 5G network in the country.
“Our solutions allow organisations, regardless of the nature of their business be it the banks, retailers and enterprises in general to use the platform to optimise it in a very private, secure and highly efficient way,” he told Bernama in an exclusive interview here.
Ivanov said the interconnection solution is also about cloud connectivity, of which DE-CIX cloud exchange is already available in Malaysia.
“Cloud exchange provides cloud connectivity which gives the users access to an efficient way to adopt their multi-cloud strategy as different cloud service providers can be used in very efficient and secure aggregated ways,” he added.
According to Ivanov, DE-CIX has developed a new way of interconnecting players within an ecosystem called the triangle edge interconnection that consists of three elements which include the 5G technology, the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI).
“DE-CIX plans in the future to introduce solutions and set up IX as close as possible to 5G sites where the users and the IoT can connect with IX that are close to mobile network towers and important places.
“We want to ensure that we can save as many milliseconds as possible, which is the indicator for latency performance, and deliver the content in a very effective way, close to the users and 5G setups,” he added.
In the meantime, managing director of DE-CIX Malaysia Wong Weng Yew said, the IX operator is actively pursuing to deploy its services in the northern region of the country, in addition to its current coverage in the central and southern regions.
He said DE-CIX multiple hubs in Malaysia can offer 5G operators options to interconnect with other network operators at the nearest locations to the users.
“Our hub allows the 5G operators to connect to other networks and other content providers to offload the traffic at the nearest location to our hub.
“By offloading the traffic at our nearest location and hub, the 5G operator can save tremendous long term costs. At the same time, they can ensure that they will get the lowest latency connected to the users,” he said.
Wong noted that in terms of interconnectivity, DE-CIX has contributed heavily in Malaysia and will continue to contribute tremendously to the developments of the upcoming 5G network.
“We aim to extend our interconnectivity points to more locations all around Malaysia to enhance the connectivity more widely and specifically cater to the upcoming 5G services,” he said.
