Subsea telecommunications cable operator Seacom has added more peering points in Europe and Africa.
The company has added the Deutscher Commercial Internet Exchange (DE-CIX) in Marseille and France Internet Exchange (FranceIX) in Paris to the list of European Internet exchange points at which it peers.
In addition, Seacom has added new Internet exchange points in Kampala (UIXP), Nairobi (KIXP) and Durban (NAPAfrica) to its list of peering agreements in Africa.
“These new peering agreements will further enhance the performance and reduce the latency Seacom clients will experience when they connect to Web services in Europe and across Africa,” it said in a statement.
The company has points of presence in Europe’s five busiest centres for Internet traffic — Stockholm, Amsterdam, London, Frankfurt and Marseille.
“Marseille is one of the key landing points in Europe for most of the marine cables coming in from Asia, Middle East and Africa,” Seacom said.
“Since the bulk of Africa’s international traffic goes into and comes out of Europe, Seacom is now positioned to provide a better experience for the continent’s growing population of broadband users.” — (c) 2016 NewsCentral Media
