What did KINX do?

Suggested local peering + Transits for Fault Tolerance configuration and cost savings

KINX suggested Hansol NexG, a professional security company to local peering + duplicate Transits for Fault Tolerance configuration and cost savings.
KINX is the only local peering service provider in Korea; about 40 members including major ISPs, SOs, CPs are peered at 895G backbone network at KINX IDCs. Allowing domestic ISPs, SOs and CPs to directly exchange Internet traffic without any charges, peering is much more cost-effective than using transits. 17% of the eyeballs in Korea (around 3 millions) uses the Internet through KINX.
Transits can be purchased by any ISPs and installed in either domestic or global places. Thus, it is doable to purchase more than 2 transits from multiple ISPs for optimized routing path.
