Seacom announces remote peering to save ISP costs

03 September 2013, 15:47 Duncan Alfreds

Cape Town - Broadband operator Seacom announced on Tuesday the launch of a new Remote Peering Service.

The service aims to provide ISPs (Internet Service Providers) with an easier way to handle their international peering.

Seacom initiated partnerships with NAPAfrica, France-IX, LINX and AMS-IX to provide African customers to peer at a lower cost than ISPs could typically do on their own.

Peering is the arrangement of traffic exchange between ISPs. Larger providers with their own backbone networks agree to allow traffic from other large ISPs in exchange for traffic on their backbones.

Ideally, data flow should be seamless and uninterrupted for consumers, regardless of where the data is stored or what kinds of information requests are made.
