Burkina Faso deploys new IXPs and VLPs

The government of Burkina Faso deploys new IXPs, – internet exchange point – and VLP – virtual landing point, in the city of Bobo-Dioulasso on 4 September, reports Agence Ecofin. The XAF3.1 billion (USD5.6 million) project, which was carried out within the framework of the West Africa Regional Communications Infrastructure Programme financed by the World Bank, is expected to greatly improve latency and traffic speeds on the network and reduce the cost of electronic communications.

The internet exchange point will enable local interconnection between telecom operators and service providers. This will consolidate the quality of Internet connectivity, which has been significantly improved since July 2018 with the entry into service of the internet exchange point and the virtual landing point in Ouagadougou.

According to the Minister of Development of Digital Economy and Posts (MDENP), Hadja Fatimata Sanon, the commissioning of the additional 15Gbps of capacity will increase the country’s overall international bandwidth to 60Gbps in 2020.
