From Global to Africa

MEF compliant

With the bulk of Ethernet connectivity traffic bound to Africa still being routed over the Europe-Africa highway by way of submarine fiber systems, AFR-IX offers a service generated from three PoPs in Europe.

Organisations in Africa looking for resilient and fast connectivity can do so via this interconnected service.

Connect any city in the world to Africa and make sure those sites are only a short hop away.


The metro network put into place in West and Central Africa is the result of collaboration between AFR-IX Telecom and its Regional African Partners.

Alongside its pan-African metro Ethernet network, AFR-IX allows international non-African carriers to access such a platform via its European Points of Presence. Using various fiber systems, coupled with VSAT solutions on-demand, African and European PoPs are connected with protection to give all non-African actors peace of mind.

´´AFR-IX Telecom is your Ethernet circuit termination for all of West and Central Africa and even Africa as a whole, without compromising on SLA.´´

´´Our one-stop shop approach is also a guarantee that we bring expertise and hardware on the ground to assist your African colleagues in the IT management of their infrastructures.´´
