Telkom’s Openserve to peer at NAPAfrica



JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – TELKOM Group’s Openserve wholesale and networks division has announced that it is peering at Africa’s largest Internet eXchange Point (IXP), NAPAfrica.

It is hailed as another significant move to strengthen customer focus through a more flexible and agile operating model.

Lex van Wyk, CEO, Teraco, says the Openserve decision to peer is in keeping with the broader evolution of a deregulating market and will assist the Telkom Group to deliver on its promises to make a significant impact on the way the company provides open access broadband to all South Africans.

“As a country, we are still grappling with a digital divide and Openserve’s decision to peer will undoubtedly assist them to deliver increased innovation and more choice, ultimately increasing broadband access,” said van Wyk.

As Africa’s largest IXP, NAPAfrica is four times the combined size of all the continents’ exchanges.

Van Wyk says that NAPAfrica is steadfast in its commitment to growing the sub-Saharan Internet exchange and become a recognised global player.

A major reason for its success is its impressive community, which includes five of the largest content providers globally and over 280 members with 80 gbps of traffic.
