MyIX MyNOG conference to discuss future Internet technologies


The Malaysia Internet Exchange (MyIX) is organising the MyIX MyNOG Conference 2017 at 26 October at Connexion@Nexus Bangsar South in Kuala Lumpur. It is inviting both local and foreign registrants to participate and take advantage of the event for an industry-level discussion and presentation of Internet technologies in the country.

The Malaysian Network Operators Group (MyNOG) is an initiative to bring together Malaysia’s network operators and provide a greater push for the Internet’s technology evolution. MyIX is a non-profit organisation under the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). It was formed to promote peering of local Internet Service Providers (ISPs), content providers and foreign peers, and create a more efficient, cost-effective Internet service for Malaysians.

“MyIX looks forward to a successful joint conference with MyNOG as our way of leading the nation’s efforts to stay at the leading edge of Internet developments,” said Chiew Kok Hin, MyIX chairman. “It is especially crucial now as the country’s economic health becomes more dependent on the support of a mature and stable Internet infrastructure.”

MyNOG has been an excellent platform to facilitate and encourage peering and business relationships among local ISPs, said Chiew. It provides an opportunity for synergistic learning and sharing.

The MyIX MyNOG Conference 2017 consists of three parts: Peering Forum, Tutorials and Conference Tracks. Among the topics to be discussed are:

  • The impact of data centre traffic on the Internet network and implications to the broader communications equipment market;
  • Cybersecurity Threats Landscape & Incidence in 2017, following industry leadership advisory on strategic actions that need to be taken to address the problem; as well as Arbor Networks report on 2016 DDoS attacks events;
  • How Serverless Compute, Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are driving up adoption of 400G and 800G Ethernet, especially as service providers and new cloud operators race to adopt the latest technology to keep up with the bandwidth demand for their business growth;
  • Sharing of the technology behind Google Espresso Controller, which leverage Egress Peering Engineer technology – covering the Traffic Engineering optimisation, how to achieve cheaper peering solutions;
  • How to protect critical infrastructure with Autonomous Network Management, in the face of increasingly sophisticated attacks that require companies to ramp up the resilience of their corporate and operational networks;
  • The journey of how the world’s largest social network – Facebook – arrived at its current scale
  • The future of the Internet, in a paper on the cutting edge Blockchain technology, on storing data publicly in a trustless system; and
  • The latest updates from APNIC, Asia Pacific’s main and central Internet registry that serves 56 economies throughout Asia and Oceania.

“MyIX always seeks to facilitate access to the latest technological trends from both domestic and international subject-matter experts via events such as the MyIX MyNOG Conference 2017,” said Chiew. “I am confident that this partnering of both MyNOG and MyIX will bring about a fruitful gathering of technological brains to really bring forward the country’s Internet development.”
