AfPIF 2016 Diaries: 7th African Peering and Interconnection Forum

 Vymala Thuron

The 7th African Peering and Interconnection Forum (AfPIF) took place in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from 30 August - 1 September 2016. AfPIF is the annual conference organised by the Internet Society to specifically address interconnection challenges together with the wide-ranging opportunities the African continent offers. Tanzania is well-known for its safari, Mount Kilimanjaro and beautiful Zanzibar beaches, but not only that: it established its first IXP, the Tanzania Internet eXchange (TIX), back in 2003, helping to keep Africa's Internet traffic within the continent. Keeping traffic local reinforces the infrastructure environment thus building resiliency, and IXP customers can enjoy not only an increased speeds but also a reduction of latency and cost. Every year, AFRINIC sends a delegation to AfPIF. Here are some highlights of the team's "peering" experience here in Dar es Salaam this year, alongside the 200 other Delegates which gathered to share experiences, best practices, questions and dreams on a connected Africa through IXP's and peering.
