Tuesday, July 2, 2024

CHIEF, HGC and AMS-IX enter into partnership

HONG KONG, June 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Chief Telecom (CHIEF), the operator of Taiwan's largest Internet Exchange (TPIX), the world's leading Internet Exchange AMS-IX, and HGC Global Communications Limited (HGC), a fully-fledged ICT service provider and network operator with extensive global coverage, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to provide a total business solution to their respective customers. This agreement facilitates the seamless traffic exchange between Taipei Internet Exchange (TPIX) and AMS-IX Hong Kong, so as to provide customers a one-stop shop solution, allowing them to expand their internet network resources by leveraging their extensive global connectivity network.

AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, is one of the largest internet exchanges globally, boasting a member base of nearly a thousand. HGC is a well-known telecom operator in Asia and also serves as a partner of AMS-IX in the region.

By leveraging this strategic partnership, TPIX members can now expand their network resources and facilitate content sharing and localization, not only within Hong Kong but also across the HGC's extensive global network with diversified routes and digital infrastructure. This connectivity empowers them to reach other AMS-IX exchanges in Asia, such as Singapore, Bangkok, and Manila, as well as globally, including Amsterdam, the Bay Area and Chicago. This seamless and reliable remote peering solution enhances the end-user experiences.

Conversely, AMS-IX Hong Kong members can enjoy additional 170 network connections and tap into the local user base in Taiwan through TPIX. This expanded connectivity and access to a new eyeball will drive more traffic exchange to both AMS-IX Hong Kong and TPIX members. The reciprocal benefits of this partnership allow the connected parties to penetrate each others' markets and reach a broader audience base, contributing to the growth of the cross-border peering ecosystem.

Mr. Joseph Wu, Chairman of Chief Telecom, said: "Joining the global community of internet exchanges is a valuable experience and opportunity to CHIEF. In the future, we can leverage each others local customers and numerous peering members to create a synergistic effect greater than the sum of its parts. We aspire to become the digital convergence of East Asia and AI cloud application center. CHIEF acts as an important hub for major private and consortium submarine cable systems in Asia-Pacific region while TPIX is now ranked 82th of the largest IXPs globally. We eagerly anticipate that under the strategic partnership, we can accelerate up TPIX's global ranking, increase our digital influence, and position CHIEF as a crucial strategic hub connecting Taiwan with the world."

Mr. Daniel Wang, Assistant Vice President, Taiwan, International Business of HGC, said: "We are honoured to partner with CHIEF and AMS-IX, as this strategic cooperation aligns with our strategy to build up a robust and expansive peering ecosystem. This ecosystem will enable more peering opportunities for OTT, content providers, gaming, cloud service providers across the regions. By leveraging our global reach and digital infrastructure, we can improve Internet performance through low latency and enhance end-user experience."

Mr. Onno Bos, International Partnership Director of AMS-IX, added: "Asia is one of the fastest-growing regions in terms of internet traffic. By expanding our connectivity network in the region, either via partnerships and opening additional exchanges, we strive to support the growth of digital transformation. In doing so, the region will benefit from more efficient, reliable and secure data exchange between different networks."
