26 September 2016 |


DE-CIX will celebrate its premiere on the African continent at this year’s Capacity Africa conference held on September 27th and 28th in Kampala (Uganda).

For DE-CIX - as one of the global pioneers in the internet infrastructure business - Capacity Africa offers the ideal marketplace to extend its customer base in the heart of Africa.

“We are building peering bridges from Europe to Africa and vice versa. Customers can easily get connected to our Internet exchanges (IX) in Marseille, Palermo and Frankfurt and access those powerful market places through the major submarine cables. Peering at DE-CIX just makes the difference as customers can connect with 1000+ international and national networks, experience the fastest interconnection possible and also reduce latency and IP transit costs”, says Andreas Sturm, Head of Business Development at DE-CIX.

DE-CIX provides premium Internet exchange (IX) services and operates several carrier and data centre-neutral internet exchanges internationally offering best-in-class peering and interconnection services. The company serves over 1,000 carriers, ISPs and content networks from over 60 countries, including all leading international players in various metro markets in Europe, the Middle East and North America. With over 5.5 terabits per second of peak traffic, DE-CIX Frankfurt is the world’s leading Internet exchange. DE-CIX is your one-stop-shop for peering, interconnection and additional IX services.
