The Cambodia REN (CamREN) worked closely with the Vietnam REN (VinaREN), the national research and education network of Vietnam, to achieve its physical connection.

Internet is a worldwide network connecting millions of computers and over 100 countries are linked into exchanges of data, news and opinions. With this, local Internet traffic passes through different international channels before it goes back to its country of origin. Hence, Internet Exchange Points (IXs) are formed.
An IX is a physical infrastructure through which Internet Service Providers (ISPs) exchange Internet traffic among their networks. The main purpose of an IX is to provide direct connectivity to all networks, via the exchange, instead of through one or more third-party networks. There are many advantages of direct connection but the most important of which are faster access to local destinations and reduction of international costs leading to a common good.

The Internet Protocol (IP), is one of the pillars of the Internet. It is the one responsible for addressing hosts and routing datagrams from a source to a destination host across one or more IP networks. Thus, IP sets an addressing system which has two (2) functions: a) identifying hosts; and b) providing logical location service. Said functions are accomplished by defining standard datagrams and addressing system. The IP version 4 (IPv4), which is the first major version of IP, is the dominant IP. However, according to the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), IPv4 officially depleted on 03 February 2011.
