France-IX to continue growing presence in Africa

Tuesday 7 November 2017 | 15:28 CET | News
France-IX said that its presence in Africa expanded rapidly in 2017. The company plans to support the creation of new IXPs in Africa, providing training, equipment donation and technical assistance. France-IX started this initiative with CASIX in Morocco, followed by SENIX in Senegal, and is now planning to help Benin and Congo. The rapid expansion of the France-IX community in Africa is due to a combination of new peering members joining the IXP in both its Paris and Marseille hubs and new connections via its remote peering partners with presence in Africa.
