We not only create, build, and run interconnection platforms, but we build whole interconnection ecosystems for the benefit of all connected networks and businesses.
We make interconnection easy, anywhere. To achieve this, we deliver the best possible technical quality and state-of-the-art support to accompany the interconnection needs of our customers.

Formed as a merged entity between Johor Bahru Internet Exchange (JBIX) and DE-CIX International, DE CIX Malaysia operates two Internet Exchanges in Greater Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru. It is part of the DE-CIX Asean network, interconnecting with other DE-CIX Asean IX nodes in Singapore.
Founded in 2018, JBIX started its first internet exchange node in Menara MSC Cyberport in Johor Bahru. Aiming to help the Malaysian and regional Telco to exchange traffic prior to sending the traffic to Singapore, JBIX has quickly expanded its nodes to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. In JBIX’s first 12-months, it has quickly recruited over 30 participants.
In 2020, JBIX was merged into DE CIX Malaysia, which is a joint venture entity between DE-CIX Asian and Starwing Technologies Sdn Bhd, to form DE-CIX Malaysia.
