Make connectivity easy and simple with this Layer 3 service. IP VPN connectivity by AFR-IX is ideal for organisations that traditionally rely on IP SEC. Whilst applying a VPN on IP SEC can provide relative security, it cannot beat the IP VPN solution for security, efficiency and privatisation. Our servers and routers deliver content from Africa and not from Europe.
