Public Peering

Public Peering

Instead of exspensive multiple direct links between carriers and internet service providers, a single peering point allows multiple networks to interconnect using a carrier neutral Layer 2 Internet exchange point. With the exploding growth of traffic in todays content provider markets, ISP and Telcos in the region must peer to exchange their traffic to reduce costs, increase redundancy, reduce latency and generally improve performance.

Carriers and ISPs within the Digital Parks Africa data centre include CellC, Neotel, Vodacom Business, MTN, Comsol, VOConnect, Dark Fibre Africa and MetroFibre, several of which have already indicated intent to peer on the exchange.
