Manama-IX was established in March 2019 as a result of a strategic partnership between AMS-IX, one of the leading internet exchange providers, and Batelco, one of the leading Telecom operators in the MENA region.

Manama-IX (mn-ix) will serve as a neutral internet traffic exchange platform interconnecting global networks within the region.

"The introduction of Manama-IX is in line with our commitment to support Bahrain’s vision for the Kingdom as a key digital hub in the region. Our goal is to develop Manama-IX into a leading internet hub in the MENA region and this can be achieved through our partnership with a global experienced partner like AMS-IX, who will accelerate the delivery of our objective by deploying a scalable, managed Internet Exchange operated by them"
