In 1990, through the database connectivity transmission under the X25 protocol, the Internet is born in Argentina. Small entrepreneurs were the first to envision a means of communicating. With the launch of the Chamber, the first Internet exchange point (NAP/IXP) was born in Buenos Aires. The federal expansion of broad band and 4G enabled new players in the industry with new connectivity service providers to start competing with the big telcos. Finally, the evolution of connectivity in Argentina lay the foundation for the future of the Internet of Things (IoT).
The members of CABASE are grouped in working committees related to fields of specific interest. They hold monthly meetings to discuss different business matters and in that way come up with innovative initiatives and find adequate solutions to existing complex issues.
