IAA operates Australia’s largest not-for-profit, carrier-neutral peering exchanges. When you choose to peer on our network, you join a community of other like-minded organisations that want to be part of a more equitable interconnection.
What is Peering?
Peering is all about making connections and improving throughput on neutral ground between as many IP networks as possible. It’s a form of connectivity that enables networks to physically connect at an Internet Exchange Point (IXP) and exchange traffic.
Peering offers many benefits, including latency reduction, backhaul optimisation, and improved efficiency with the added benefit of lowering connectivity costs.
Designed to flatten the hierarchy of Internet connectivity, peering makes for a more open and equitable Internet.
The Internet Exchanges IAA hosts operate across more than 30 data centres nationally, with IXPs located in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney.
We colocate our equipment in data centres to offer port speeds of 10Gbps, 40Gbps, and 100Gbps as onramps to our network.
