AMS-IX Caribbean

Since April 2013 the Caribbean Internet Exchange (CAR-IX) is an integral part of the AMS-IX environment and renamed to AMS-IX Caribbean. By being fully responsible for the management and operations of the peering platform, AMS-IX can coordinate all activities more closely, as a result work more efficiently and further contribute to the Internet ecosystem in the Caribbean area.

The change in management set-up follows after the technical operations contract expired between AMS-IX and CAR-IX. As AMS-IX already had experience with the deployment of another exchange in Hong Kong and as its name is a global brand that benefits smaller businesses, the CAR-IX Association decided to continue the relationship.

In 2008, AMS-IX used its successful business model formula to help found CAR-IX in cooperation with the running minister as well as Bureau Telecommunications and Post at the Dutch Antilles. While AMS-IX was responsible for operating the technical platform, the members of the CAR-IX Association were responsible for the strategic direction.
