Oman-IX, they suggest, aims to revolutionise digital infrastructure services in the region by interconnecting industry-leading organizations, networks, data centres, and cloud services across the Middle East and beyond.
Alliance Networks, known for its extensive network reach and expertise in providing advanced digital solutions, will deliver marketing and sales support for the new internet exchange and collaborate with AMS-IX to deliver the platform, technical support, expertise, and training.
Through this partnership, AWASR, Alliance Networks and AMS-IX will collaborate to build digital infrastructure services, leveraging Alliance's infrastructure, AWASR's expertise, and Oman's internet exchange capabilities.
Oman-IX will serve as a hub for aggregating IP peering traffic from both local and global networks within Oman, while also facilitating the exchange of peering traffic through the AMS-IX internet exchange to other international internet exchanges.
The new internet exchange will be situated in the MC1 carrier-neutral data centre of Equinix in Muscat. Implementation and go live of the new IX is expected for Q4 this year.
