IX Australia

Member owned not-for-proft Peering Services

At IX Australia we have built on the success of WA-IX, a multi-lateral peering exchange established in 1997 by the Internet Association of Australia Inc. (formerly Western Australian Internet Association Inc.).

Who we are

With the success of WA-IX, in 2011 we expanded to VIC-IX and QLD-IX, SA-IX in 2012 and NSW-IX in 2013. Today all of these exchanges are operated under the IX Australia branding, unifying our services that are offered to members Australia wide.

Why IX Australia

Being a not-for-profit organisation, our focus and direction is driven by our members. Unlike a commercial entity which needs to answer to share-holders, we work with our members to provide the best possible outcomes for their needs. And the focus of our organisation is coordinated with representatives across all membership classes.

The advantage

Not-for-profit We won’t sell out to the highest bidder, our organisation is owned and operated by our members.

Neutral We provide a neutral platform for members from all industries to engage.

Reliable We have been operating services since 1997 and therefore we have a proven track record.

Focus Our attention is on member value-add services, not profits.

Cost Our services provide members with great cost savings and alternatives to commercially derived solutions.


Becoming a member of our organisation is the first step in being part of IX Australia’s member service network. More information on this can be found on the IAA website.

All members are invited to attend one of the many IX Australia events we host, or alternatively speak to anyone from our executive or technical team to voice ideas or concerns.
