Converge ICT doubles bandwidth to PHOpenIX

Due to the current pandemic, most are now doing online activities and transactions and it is a major contributing factor to the increase of internet traffic in the country.

To help in this situation, Converge ICT voluntarily doubled to 20Gbps its port capacity with PHOpenIX. This aims to help internetusers experience lower latency by keeping local traffic locally routed between all service providers connected through PHOpenIX as well as government websites.

We are happy that Converge has almost saturated their 10 Gbps link to PhOpenIX, which hasprompted them to turn up a second 10 Gbps link. This shows the value that can be derived by local networks if they prefer to put traffic over their peering links, said Bani Lara, Science Research Specialist from ASTI-DOST

This extra capacity should help in unclogging traffic between service providers who are openly connected to PHOpenIX. 

PHOpenIX is the only open and neutral Internet Exchange in the country that enables the exchanges of Internet traffic in a free-market environment among local internet and data service carriers.

It is operated by the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), mandated to lead the research and development of technology solutions to modernize Information and Communications Technology and microelectronics in the country.
