Formerly known as a CAT National Internet Exchange (CAT NIX) service, Thailand IX (TH-IX) is an Internet exchange that serves as an infrastructure for customers in Thailand to connect to the Internet.
The service was previously provided over a 3-layer network supervised by CAT Telecom Public Company Limited (CAT Telecom).
In 2018, it was rebranded as Thailand IX (TH-IX), providing Internet exchange via a 2-layer network with peering members that are primarily Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
There are two service-providing data centers (main nodes): the CAT Tower Building in Bangrak, Bangkok, and Building 3 CAT in Mueng, Nonthaburi.
After a merger with TOT Public Company Limited (TOT), CAT Telecom Public Company Limited (CAT Telecom) is now known as National Telecommunication Company Limited (NT PLC).
As it was in the past, CAT Telecom Public Company Limited (CAT Telecom) is in charge of overseeing the Thailand IX (TH-IX) service.
Peering Asia 4.0 represents a new milestone for Thailand IX, solidifying its position as the country’s leading Internet exchange provider, which is ripe with potential.
Thailand IX has been entrusted by APIX (Asia Pacific Internet Exchange Association) committee members to collaborate with BBIX (Thailand) in hosting Peering Asia 4.0, with the official host list announced at Peering Asia 3.0 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
