Minister of Transport and Communications HE Jassim bin Saif al Sulaiti on Monday launched the first Internet Exchange Point in Qatar (QIXP).
Established in MEEZA data centre, QIXP aims to enable local networks to exchange information efficiently at a common point within the country instead of exchanging the local information outside of the country, thus ensuring that internet users in Qatar have faster and a more secure access to the digital content.
“We are pleased to launch the QIXP, which is a new achievement in developing the essential components of internet infrastructure in the ICT sector of Qatar. This project will contribute to further improve the country’s international network readiness rankings and to attract global content providers,” Sulaiti said.
