The non profit organisation, Malaysia's National Internet Exchange, initiated by government regulator Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, has revamped its website as part of a greater outreach strategy, it said.

Speaking in late February 2012, the Malaysian National Internet Exchange (MyIX) chairman Chiew Kok Hin said that the overhauled website - - would allow visitors to have a clearer understanding of the organisation as well as help boost its ISP (Internet service provider) membership.

"This site has a fresh feel which I think appeals to our growing number of ISP members," said Chiew. "This step is taken by MyIX to build a better relationship with our existing members by making the site interactive and at the same giving our loyalist members what they have come to expect."

He said that by encouraging more content providers and ISPs to sign up, it would also help to promote broadband penetration in Malaysia. "So far, this has been effective for MyIX with the latest addition of four new members i.e. Tune Music, VADS Berhad, BigBand and Tg Agas Technology."

Chiew said the site overhaul took about two to three months and members would be able to download reports and minutes of meetings as well as a multimedia experience. There are five tabs offering a wide range of services such as member login for reports, traffic statistics, useful links (Looking Glass and Network Monitoring System), photo gallery and latest updates."

"We want members to invite us into their office or home through this site and be satisfied with the service they are getting." he added. "It's a place that will continue to evolve as we do."

Non-profit organisation MyIX (Malaysia Internet Exchange) is operated by Persatuan Pengendali Internet Malaysia and was created by national regulator MCMC [Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission] in September 2006. MyIX's latest infrastructure consists of eight Internet Exchange nodes of which five were recently in Bayan Baru, Johor Bahru, Kuantan, Kuching, and Kota Kinabalu.
