An interconnect platform in Nigeria called AF-CIX is sponsoring the 2023 African Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF) in Ghana. The Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra will host global data and connectivity industry stakeholders for the event on August 22–24, 2023. The platform seeks to enhance network efficiency and internet speed for Nigerian service providers.

An opportunity to present challenges and opportunities to the African technical community is provided by the annual AfPIF conference, which promotes national and cross-border interconnection in Africa. The conference focuses on internet dynamics, content distribution, and transit obstacles at local and regional levels.

In addition to providing a forum for important stakeholders, including infrastructure and service providers, IXPs, regulators, and policymakers, to engage in a professional yet informal setting, sharing experiences and learning from industry experts, the annual event hopes to foster networking and peer opportunities. In order to facilitate learning from industry experts and exchanging experiences in a casual yet professional setting, the Forum seeks to provide peering and networking opportunities for key players, including infrastructure and service providers, IXPs, regulators, and policymakers.

“We are glad and proud to be a silver sponsor for the 2023 African Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF), charged to be held in Ghana,” stated Obinna Adumike, Head of Peering and Exchange Platforms, in reference to AF-CIX’s encouragement of the Forum.

The company’s objective of improving interconnection in Africa is in line with its sponsorship of this event. For ISPs, CCPs, and businesses, they are dedicated to advancing traffic localization, cost-effectiveness, resilience, and security. The world depends largely on connectivity, so their choice to support the event is in line with their mission to advance enterprise businesses’ and networks’ traffic localization, cost-effectiveness, resilience, and security. He claims that “AF-CIX offers a platform for peering interconnection services between cloud and content providers, enterprise businesses, and content delivery networks.” In addition to traffic growth and localization, we give participants the means to adopt next-generation digital technologies, low-latency cloud services, and functional traffic engineering.

In order to facilitate the expansion of the Internet throughout Africa, the AF-CIX platform was introduced in March 2023. Its features include efficient traffic localization, affordability, resilience, enterprise digitization acceleration, and community support. With over 20 users, the platform enhances the function of Nigeria’s Internet Exchange Point by offering a backup route for local traffic exchange and a reliable Interconnect Exchange, guaranteeing users’ and businesses’ access to reliable and affordable Internet services.
