Exact name is KTIX. Because of naming conflict, they are called KTIX.
But I think they are doing Asia-Pacific Hub or something like that.
Actually they have two kinds of backbone.
One is for transit servier, Internet eXcange Point including international
Another is for domestic connection.
In South Korea, they have 4 kinds of IX.
One is KTIX running by Korea Telecom.
Other things is DIX running by DaCom (A.K.A. BORA-Net) and Inet IX(maybe
KINX?) running by I-Net Technology.
DaCom IX and KIX is bigger.
But three are carrying the several international connection.
I heard that NCA (National Computing Agency?, parent organization of KRNIC)
tried to maintain
International eXchange Point for other ISP, so called KIX-NCA.
But I'm not sure.
It's 2 year's old information.
I left South Korea at the time.
You can contact with South Korea NOG group.
