An Overview

For years, Africa’s Internet traffic was mainly exchanged in and/or destined for Europe and North America because content was hosted outside the continent. The effect of this was limited and expensive in-country and cross-border connections. The net result was not only poor performance, but barriers to growth were created, innovation was stifled, and operational efficiency was limited.

Building an African ecosystem over the last two decades has created the right environment for interconnection. There is more content hosted within the continent than more than ever before, leading to the increased interconnection between networks of carriers and content providers, bringing users as close as possible to content.

To truly enable a business to embrace digital transformation, interconnection is needed. According to Gartner, digital businesses are enabled and enhanced through high-speed, secure, low-latency communication among enterprise assets, cloud resources, and an ecosystem of service providers and peers.
