The 8th UAE-IX Peering Workshop and Cruise 2019

In its eight edition the 2019 UAE-IX Peering Workshop powered by DE-CIX focused on how the region is entering new horizons of a digital age. Disruptive technologies as 5G, IoT and AI are framing a new interconnection demand across the region and continents. Verticals and tools – such as Gaming and Cloud – are growing together to shape the future of how business is going to be conducted.

The Peering Workshop took place at One&Only Royal Mirage Hotel on 27 November 2019.


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.
