HKIX and Satellite Sites
HKIX is one of the largest Internet Exchange points in Asia Pacific. Operated by HKIX Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Foundation, the aim of HKIX is to connect Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in Hong Kong so that intra-Hong Kong traffic can be exchanged locally without any overseas routing.
The establishment of satellite sites in town is a strategic move on the part of HKIX to enhance proximity for local Internet users. By co-locating data centres and satellite sites, HKIX users can enjoy direct connection with enhanced performance and greater flexibility at lower cost.
