AfPIF-10 (AfPIF 2019)

AfPIF 2019

AfPIF celebrates its 10-year anniversary this year

The 10th African Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF) will be held over a 3-day period from 20-22 August 2019 in Balaclava, Mauritius.

First held in 2010, the event was created to address the realization that most of Africa’s Internet traffic is sourced or exchanged outside the continent.

Over 400 participants attended last year’s AfPIF in Cape Town, South Africa including providers of international, regional, and sub-regional transport, transit, and content as well as more than 20 Internet Exchange Point (IXP) operators. This year’s attendance is expected to exceed that.
