300 GE peak and 20-fold data traffic growth for Manama-IX




May 3, 2021

MN-IX (Manama-IX) has reached a new traffic peak of over 300 GE. MN-IX was launched in 2019 by AMS-IX partner Batelco in Bahrain and has been showing booming traffic growth. Over the last 12 months, the platform's traffic has witnessed a 20-fold increase, primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with growth rates anticipated to continue well into the future, making it the fastest growing Internet Exchange in the region.

Parties connected to Manama-IX benefit from improved performance, as Internet traffic is routed in an efficient, fast, secure, stable and cost-effective way, which allows members to offer low latency and an optimised online experience for their end-users. The traffic growth on the platform shows that Manama-IX is becoming a leading hub for Internet traffic in the Middle East.

Hani Askar, Acting General Manager of Global Business at Batelco, said:

“We are delighted that Manama-IX has helped the platform’s members to address their Internet traffic demands with lower latencies in a robust ecosystem. Moreover, we are extremely proud of the immense traffic growth that has been attained in Manama-IX since its inception, which is a clear reflection of the successful efforts put into catering to customer needs in the region.”

AMS-IX CEO Peter van Burgel says:

“MN-IX is currently our fastest growing IX-as-a-service partner with record breaking traffic growth. The exchange has attracted a lot of regional and international players over the last couple of months and is now a central hub for Internet traffic in the region. The growth in Bahrain shows that there is a clear need for a neutral peering platform in the region.”
