Iran Launches Internet Hub Near Iraqi Border

Iran launched a national Internet Exchange Point in the western city of Qasr-e Shirin in Kermanshah Province, near the Iraqi border. 
The IXP, which was inaugurated by ICT Minister Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi on Wednesday, in addition to improving provincial communications, will offer international Internet transit services to the neighboring country of Iraq, the ministry’s website reported.
A total of 2.9 trillion rials ($70 million) has been invested in the province for establishing of the IXP and improving the local ICT infrastructure.
An IXP is a physical infrastructure through which Internet service providers (ISPs) and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) exchange Internet traffic between their networks.
The IXP will significantly reduce the average per-bit delivery cost of Internet services in the area. The new center is Iran’s seventh IXP with six located in Tehran, Mashhad, Tabriz, Shiraz, Qom and Ahvaz.
