Megaport Launches Megaport.ORG to Support and Advance Internet Communities, Standards and Infrastructure


BRISBANE, Australia and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ —

Megaport ( http://www.megaport.com ), a global leader in SDN-based elastic
interconnection, today announced the launch of Megaport.org, an industry and
community program that supports the advancement of Internet infrastructure and
standards through investment in people and communities.

Megaport.org sponsors key industry organizations that bring together people,
technology, and business and those that promote neutrality and independence.
Examples of recent sponsorships include Global Peering Forum, Asia Pacific
Internet Exchange Association, Euro-IX, and APRICOT. Future sponsorships will
include network operator forums and organizations that invest in Internet
development in underserved areas.

Megaport.org has established an advisory council comprised of top,
forward-thinking members of the Internet industry. The council will advise
Megaport on direction and initiatives to support the Megaport.org mission of
fostering community and supporting growth of Internet infrastructure.

Denver Maddux, Chief Executive Officer, Megaport said: "Megaport.org is all
about giving back to the communities that made the Internet possible. We’re
excited to support organizations and initiatives that foster opportunities for
people to learn and grow their capabilities. At the same time, we believe in
making investments in the growth of Internet infrastructure in places where
that is lacking. All of this improves the foundation of the Internet. Without
operator and development communities there would be little service innovation,
fewer job opportunities, and, quite frankly, there would be no open Internet as
we know it today."

Christian Koch, Director of Global Interconnection Strategy, Megaport said:
"Independent, neutral infrastructure is important to the growth and
sustainability of the Internet.  Our entire model is based on this concept.
We’re happy to be in a position where we can support initiatives that further

Megaport operates in 54 data centres across thirteen markets in Australia, New
Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and United States and is currently expanding its
presence into additional data centres in North America and Europe in key
markets including Toronto, London, Dublin, Amsterdam, and Stockholm.
