The 9th UAE-IX Peering Workshop and Cruise 2021

The 9th UAE-IX Peering Workshop and Peering Cruise took place on 24 November at Caesar’s Forum on Bluewaters Island.

We would like to thank all attendees who joined us for an excellent workshop with international industry experts Ivo A. Ivanov (DE-CIX), Abou Moustafa (du), Ramez Dandan (Microsoft), Anver Vanker (AWS), Shaunak Thakkar (Oracle), Bernd Spiess (DE-CIX) and Markus Zechner (DE-CIX). It was a day full of networking amongst peers, partners and friends – and insights about how cloud and cloud connectivity are shaping the future business.


The annual UAE-IX peering workshop delivers a significant opportunity to network with key players in the region. An event that facilitates collaboration between industrial leaders and newcomers who share their expertise on current market challenges, new concepts, awareness and changing market trends influencing the IP industry. In short, a great event, packed with so much knowledge and great speakers.
