Seacom boosts network performance
Further enhancing its network offering, Seacom has added five more Internet exchange points at which it peers – two in Europe and three 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. Its IP transit network now offers African service providers and network operators direct connectivity to a range of small, medium and large partner networks in Europe.
The company has PoPs 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. Since the bulk of Africa’s international traffic goes into and comes out of Europe, Seacom says it is now positioned to provide a better experience for the continent’s growing population of broadband users.
