HGC Global Communications Ltd., an information and communication technology (ICT) service provider and network operator, AMS-IX (Amsterdam Internet Exchange), a leading internet exchange (IX), and International Gateway Company Ltd. (IGC), a neutral regional telecommunication and network service provider, have partnered to launch AMS-IX Bangkok, as part of AMS-IX strategy to implement IX’s in key Asian locations.
Thailand is a fast-developing and important Asian internet hub and one of the prime locations where internet companies exchange traffic besides Singapore and Hong Kong. The new Bangkok IX, which is the hub and gateway of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), will improve the quality of connections of companies such as content providers, gaming, OTTs, cloud service providers and internet service providers.
Customers connected to the new exchange will benefit from lower operating costs and enhanced connectivity and redundancy as well as lower latency. Nearly 125 million people in the GMS subcontinent will benefit. The GMS area includes Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.
By adding another IXP, HGC and AMS-IX, with the support of IGC, have increased their global footprint and improved connectivity in Asia. Next to Bangkok, HGC also partners with AMS-IX in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bay Area and Chicago.
