Colocation for Content Delivery Networks

AFR-IX telecom provides the required infrastructure to create a Content Delivery Network (CDN) with more than 50 POPs strategically placed, geographically distributed, and connected via private backbone throughout Africa.

These POPs work together to provide fast and reliable delivery of Internet content

The goal of a CDN is provide high availability and performance for the delivery of cached objects (graphics, scripts), downloads (software files, documents), live and on demand streaming content, and applications (financial, e-commerce). CDNs also provide services such as content acceleration, load balancing, content security, DDoS, and WAF.

The popularity of CDN services continues to grow, and today the vast majority of web traffic is served through CDNs, including traffic from major social media, entertainment, and e-commerce sites like Facebook, Netflix, and Amazon.
