Rapid expansion of networks in Africa made possible through collaboration
2015 has brought renewed investment in IT & networking infrastructure with the focus remaining on Africa and its global investors to deliver, regardless of the downturn and recovery process. This is especially relevant to telecoms carriers, with the majority expecting significant returns from this emerging market.
Considering the investments made in fibre networks, in particular, there has been an increase in solutions from carriers as a means to remain ahead of the fast changing demands of the market. With regards to executing and expanding fibre footprints, many carriers are looking to make use of partnerships to effectively deliver what their clients expect. These carrier investments and partnerships are critical, as businesses now require higher bandwidth fibre connectivity for Internet access and other related services.
“We are seeing a growing trend of collaboration,” says Edward Lawrence, Director of Business Development for Workonline Communications, an innovative pan-African service provider of fibre-based connectivity services. “Over the past three months we have seen a 100% growth in IPv6 traffic and peers; the IPv6 traffic increase on NAPAfrica over the last year has grown from 10 IPv6 peers with a 2 Mbps peak in Aug 2014, to 55 IPv6 peers and a 664 Mbps peak in August 2015.”
